    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    Got called in for an on-campus interview by a recruiter. The interview lasted for 45 minutes. He asked 1 technical question, described his role in the company and what his team does and finally we discussed any questions I had.

    Interview Questions

    • He showed me how the Yahoo In-Mail infrastructure was set up. Then, asked me if users were facing latency problems, what could be the cause of it? And you have to troubleshoot on all the levels of the infrastructure.   Answer Question
