    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wilmslow, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Waters (Wilmslow, England).

    Interview

    One of my favorite interviews, good questions (hard but not stupid, things like: what was the most difficult bug you ever fixed)

    A well rounded technical test, challenging but the questions where things that anyone who calls themselves a C++ engineer (and most engineers in general) should know.

    Also everyone involved (I got passed around a little) was very nice and very much "not in interviewer mode" by which, they were open and relaxed and I felt like I would enjoy working with these people because I could picture them being like this during a brew etc.

    I went through a 3rd party recruiter initially and he was excellent, sadly I only remember his first name "Alex".

    Interview Questions

    • What was the most catastrophic bug you ever caused   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Funny, they were offering a lot more then my current job anyway, but due to a bureaucratic reason they had to ring me back and offer me more, can't really get better then that!
