Round 4 – f2f with Director of Engineering(DOE)
I was just asked a single question here, a puzzle, asked in form of a programming problem. I was asked to suggest solutions considering both, DS and the logical solution of the puzzle.
There’s a circular hotel lobby with doors that leads to different rooms. There light inside the room can be on/off. You need to check and turn off light in every room. Number of rooms is not known, you can travel in both directions.
Identifying the starting point holds the crux here as the lobby is circular and number of rooms is not known.
Round 5 – HR

- Why windows

- How you got into app development
- And mostly behavioral questions and compensation discussion.
