    At Sandvine, you will get an opportunity to utilize your potential to the fullest. I worked here for six years and got to work with an amazing set of people. I learned a lot in the process. Got to meet customers, learned how they use our products, learned from them how networks are run. Good technical stuff.
    Life is fun at Sandvine. The social committee keeps organizing interesting events round the year: from ice bucket challenge to chicken wing eating contest.

    Cons

    Some development tools are archaic.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sandvine (Toronto, ON) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I received an email for codebyte challenge. The challenge consists of a few multiple-choice questions and 3 coding questions. The multiple choices questions include CS, mathematics and statistics questions. The coding part has unlimited time and is fairly difficult. And the time you spend in each task affects your score.

    I believe the code challenges' difficulty is exceedingly unreasonable if not insulting, considering it is just for screening phone interview candidates, even in comparison to companies with notoriously hard code challenges.

    I think the company's recruiting process is very unprofessional if not a joke. I didn't even receive an email from a person that says please complete a coding challenge or explain the recruiting process. I also didn't receive an email from anyone in Sandvine after I finished the challenge. It almost feels like either the challenge was sent to me by mistake or they just forgot me. I don't even have anyone to follow up with, as I was never contacted by a person.

    In the end, I do not even wish anyone from Sandvine to follow up with me as I would never want to work for under any circumstances anyway. What a joke!
