    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time for more than 3 years


    Friendly environment with people really passionate about their work. Plenty of variety day-to-day and you never feel without a challenge. Great transport links, easily commutable from London.


    Salary increases are sometimes unclear and perhaps a little less than competitive with similar jobs. Career progression can also be somewhat of an unknown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job, keep it up.

    Hardware Design Engineer (Summer Placement) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Kings Langley, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kings Langley, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Imagination Technologies in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online via their website. After around two weeks they emailed me and arranged a phone interview which comprised of questions such as why did you choose Imagination, what have you studied at university, a little bit about MIPS architecture and questions regarding pipelining, interrupts and a linked-lists in C.

    A few days after they arranged a Face-to-Face interview with me at their HQ. This comprised of more difficult questions, particularly those at the low-level, things like designing counters in logic, creating a NAND only XOR etc. Just make sure you can do a little Boolean algebra.

    They're not looking for people who can answer every question perfectly, they're looking for those who think about it and make an attempt regardless rather than those who just say "I can't do it" or "I don't know how".
