    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pubmatic in March 2015.

    Interview

    I have signed NDA and thus cannot disclose all details. I wish to share the experience to give as a good feedback. Initially contacted by the recruiter for a phone screen . 2 weeks later the recruiter contacted to set-up phone technical round which also had coding by screen sharing. Received the results an hour later to schedule onsite round. A week later flew to onsite location. There were 5 rounds. 4 technical and one non-technical. Received results an hour later.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the best interview rounds I have given on phone and onsite. The test is on problem solving and logical thinking and not just on learning how to solve a interview question available on internet or popular books.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pubmatic in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was unorganized and unprofessional. Company was not clear about why they wanted to hire for the position and I am guessing they did not fill the position. I was not informed of outcome after four rounds with eight people across three cities and two continents. The recruiter / HR was clueless in the process and just a goat. Sheer waste of everyone's time.

    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Pubmatic.

    Interview

    If they run their business like they run their interview process I would stay away. No feedback from meeting to meeting weeks would go by then HR would reach out wanting to do more interviews. Hiring Manager was MIA throughout the whole process. Final straw interviewed with the CEO, in person he looked at his cell phone the whole time and yawned several times.. I asked him if he prefer another time. It was offensive.. My take away a lot of great companies in our space, I would not work for a company with such little respect for new hires. I believe the glassdoor reviews are accurate

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pubmatic (New York, NY (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, then an HR guy called me to set up an interview. I had a phone interview that was not easy. He asked about lots of stuff in Java and design patterns.Then I was invited for a 3-4 hours in person interview. I talked with several people separately. The interview involved lots of white board coding and data structures questions. The third person asked me about Spring and Hibernate and OO concepts. The last one asked me about my experience and very detailed explanation of my previous projects.
    A day after the interview I got the job offer but few days later they changed their mind and they implicitly told me that they found a cheaper developer.
