    Technical Delivery Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at AKQA in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Professional, relatively fast (they needed a quick hire) one phone and two face-to-face interviews. A variety of topics, no particularly hard questions. Final interviews with more senior staff were relatively blunt, but to the point. I didn't tick all their boxes, but ticked enough to get an offer.
    Different interviews covered different material, initial phone interview was very easy, just a chat and very basic technical details. Second interview was more related to project management and software development. Final interview more on managing process and people, and more advanced aspects of the SDLC.

    Interview Questions
