    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Snowed In Studios (Ottawa, ON) in Aug 2021


    The interview process was smooth overall. A get-to-know interview followed by a technical round against 2 senior engineers based on C# and C++. The interview started with drilling my resume, and questions about my current project along with a few behavioural questions. Following this, a deep discussion on Stack vs Heap, value type vs reference type, and getting to know your thinking process and how you respond to hypothetical questions and situations, The interviewers were friendly, and were impressed with my answers (atleast I felt so). I felt like the interview couldn't go any better, but, it turned out to be a rejection without specifying the exact issues, so that I could work on them.

    - Memory based question. - Stack vs Heap memory. - Basic C++ syntax.
