    Software Development Intern Interview

    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Softwire.

    Interview

    Initial application via a straightforward online application form. Initial brainteaser style phone interview as described by other reviewers. Softwire were very quick to respond at all stages of the application process (a maximum of two days delay probably). Onsite interview process was much longer than I was expecting and consisted of multiple pseudocode problem solving puzzles, an on computer test (reasoning puzzles and essays rather than coding) and an HR style interview.

    Had initial phone interview last summer, asked complex algorithm questions and riddles. The interviewer seemed distracted and uninterested with anything I had to say.

    Wouldn’t recommend asking algorithm interview over the phone.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Softwire (London, England) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Telephone interview: I was asked basic employment questions (why the role, why softwire, etc) on the first 10 minutes. Then, I was asked 2 puzzle / logic questions. The interviewer was chill, guided me along to get the right answer. Nonetheless I think I took way too long to answer and think spontaneously.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Softwire (London, England) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview by telephone which involved briefly talking about my programming experience since I was coming from a non-computer science background. Followed by two technical questions based on search algorithms and syntactic validation.

    Interview in person at Softwire offices in North London. This included a face to face interview lasting 20 minutes or so with a lady from recruitment. This was followed by three tests on computer. The tests were designed by Softwire and highly time pressured. After lunch I met one of Softwires Senior Developers who gave me two programming exercises using a made up programming language. Finally a debrief with the same lady from recruitment where I was given the opportunity to ask any questions I had.
