    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at SDL (Bristol, England) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Did offline tech test that was supposed to be about C++ but was actually pure C. Had to write a sorting algorithm.

    Two face to face interviews: a technical interview with team lead and another senior developer, followed by a management/HR interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about: general C++ language topics, deadlocking in multi-threaded environment when using multiple locks.   1 Answer
