    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at East Side Games (Vancouver, BC) in November-2013.

    Interview

    I was called in for an initial interview with a producer and a senior programmer, who asked some fairly basic questions about experience, coding style, optimization, etc.

    Afterwards I was called in to do a three hour tech test, which involved modifying a very simple game. I had to discover and fix two bugs, and then expand on the game as I saw fit. I didn't end up finishing my planned changes, but they seemed to like the level of creativity I showed.
