    Pros

    The company, the culture, the benefits and the people - this place is as close to every geek's dream job as it gets, especially if you care about OpenSource technology.

    Sometimes, having to work with the upstream community can be frustrating

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Red Hat in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Only a single interview with two of the software engineers. Asked technical questions based on how compilers work as well as behavioural questions to guage my interest in the company. They were very nice and they helped me out when I was struggling. Also very encouraging in terms of urging you to think harder and come up with the correct answer.
