    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Rapid7 (El Segundo, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    First phone interview, with recruiter, purely non technical. On site interview, within 2 weeks, consisted of 4 half hour interviews. 2 technical and 2 behavioral. Technical Interview questions were vague, and it was hard to decipher what the question really asked.

    Interview Questions

    • Java questions, basic. Second guy just drilled into my resume skills, and basically discussed my projects, and what the hard parts were.   Answer Question
