    Software Engineer Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon BBN Technologies.

    Interview

    The initial communications was a bit spotty but over all ended up working. I was told to come in, but not what I was in for (time it will take, how many people, etc).

    I was taken up to HR and given a primer on the company. Not terribly useful as I had already learned most of it (it being the reason I applied in the first place).

    I was then taken to about 3 different divisions and given an interview with one or two people at each. Over all the entire process took the entire day. Not unusual, but some warning would have been appreciated.

    Overall the interview process was fairly typical for a software job, however looking back it was a bit intense for an entry level job. But I cannot fault them for wanting a more serious atmosphere. Not a hard interview, but lengthy.

    For questions: there were no puzzles, just technical questions and review of prior work I had done independently and during summers in college.

    Interview Questions

    • Raster ordering for images. Not difficult, just unexpected. I honestly was expecting something more involved since I was going after a vision related position.   1 Answer
