BlueOptima Interview Experience for Graduate Software Engineer | On Campus
Round 1: Online Assessment
The online test was conducted on the HackerEarth platform (3 hours), it consisted of 30 MCQs and 3 coding questions. The MCQs were based on fundamentals of Frontend Development and Aptitude, the coding questions were about developing a UI having some functionality as specified.
Round 2: Technical Interview
7 students got shortlisted, the interview started with a brief introduction to the company.
The interview then asked various questions on
- Version Control
- System Design
Varying from easy to medium, and then ended with two live coding questions where I had to develop the UI or add some functionality.
Some of the topics asked – Flexbox, Grid, alt tag, prototypes, var, let, const, selectors in CSS, etc
Round 3: Work Sample Round
4 students got shortlisted for the next round.
This was the most interesting experience as we were given a problem statement and had to provide a working solution in a week’s time. It was about building a component with the specified functionality and providing appropriate documentation for the same. We were free to use any framework we were comfortable with.
After a week, the company assessed the submissions and shortlisted 2 students further for another discussion on the work sample.
In the interview, I mostly had to explain the approach followed, they provided feedback and if any errors were found then they asked me to fix them right away on the call.
Final Result: Selected
