    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SolarFlare Communications (Irvine, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by Solarflare’s recruiter via Linkedin, and set up a couple of phone interviews. Then I was invited for an on-site interview, which had two technical interviews (one hour each). A about a month later, I had the final interview, 3 technical, 1 HR and 1 with VP.
