    Interview Details

    There was only one interview at first. There there was a manager and a senior engineer who briefly went over my resume and asked me about my past work experience such as what I did what was my role and etc. The interview probably lasted for about 2 hours or so and then HR contacted me and got an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty straightforward. They asked about object oriented programming questions such as what is polymorphism in C++.   View Answer
