    I have been working at XtremeEDA full-time (More than 5 years)


    Opportunity to work for various ASIC/FPGA companies including the largest of the industry; contribute to different verification environments using the latest methodologies; interface directly with the client and own your success; can always count on XEDA resources for help/suggestions/recommendations; focus on verification and not worry about looking for a future engagenet; ability to work from home


    Some might find it intimidating to have to interview for each client, but it gets easier after a while. Working as a consultant doesn't mean projects cannot be demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Senior Verification Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ottawa, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at XtremeEDA (Ottawa, ON) in June-2012.


    After submitting my resume I was offered an opportunity for an in-person interview. The interview consisted of describing technical details on my resume, in detail. The interviewer was experienced in interviewing and, I think, could tell if any exaggeration was involved. Always be honest about what you can and can't do, and where you need to learn more. That tells the interviewer more about your integrity than anything.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were about detailed technical questions about things on my resume. The interviewer was technically capable so discussion was easy.   1 Answer
