    PHP Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Vice Media (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was sent to their offices in Williamsburg for an in person interview without a phone screen. I met with the VP of Technology as well as two developers. The interview was for a backend PHP role, but they wanted to know about any front-end skills I might have as well.

    The office was large and populated mostly with casually dressed young people. Everyone was quite friendly and seemed happy to speak with me. The interview took place in a conference room. I had a hard stop after an hour due to time constraints of my own. I was asked about my background and then handed a laptop that was connected to the room's projector. I had to write PHP functions to perform tasks like determining if a word started with an uppercase character without using the ctype_upper() function.

    The interview questions were easy and completely solvable. I was allowed to use Google or other Internet resources when needed, however, they watch the entire process so they know when you are looking for additional resrouces.
