    Firmware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Socionext (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Applied for the position through a LinkedIn post. The Hiring manager reached out within a week to explain about the position and requirements. The interview had three rounds. Round one was a phone screen with the hiring manager in which my education and past experience was discussed along with brief introduction of the company. Round two was an on-site technical interview with the team, HR and the hiring manager in which there was a discussion about my resume and some questions about the fundamental embedded system concepts and whiteboard coding. Round three was again an onsite interview with senior management and president of the company. The experience was positive and professional and I had a good time discussing my background and solving questions.

Company Updates

  • June 30, 2020 – PR Announcement on the collaboration between Socionext, ZiFiSense, and Techsor on the development of "ZETag" - a low power, low cost IC tag with built-in power supply and ability to transmit signals by itself. It's capable of transmission distance of several kilometers and includes RF and MCU functionalities implemented into a single SoC. The ZETags will push the boundary of IoT sensor usage, covering a wider range of applications from durable goods to consumables, making significant contribution to the realization of smart logistics.

  • Following the May 12th joint press announcement, two articles were published from affiliated industry publications on “Transformative AI Processing Solution for Video Analytics at the Edge" detailing why the future of smart technologies resides at the edge and not in the cloud.
