MasterCard Associate Software Engineering Interview Experience

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 21 Aug, 2020


  • 10th & 12th -75%
  • 7.5 CGPA No YD, No active Backlog
  • Education break should not exceed 24 months

Day 1: PPT (10:30 AM – 12:00 PM)

Coding Test (12:30 PM – 1:00 PM) 2 Questions-Partial Marking-TechGig platform

  1. Modified Job Scheduling (Input was in string format so it became a bit time-consuming at least for me)
  2. String Manipulation

I heard the cutoff was around 110 but some people with even higher scores were not selected so can’t say much. 60 got shortlisted for Technical round 

Day 2: 

Technical Round: (I messed up an answer because I got confused with some terms) Business Skype

  1. What Technologies do you like working on?
  2. About my projects
  3. Do you know what is responsive website
  4. Tell me about Materialise CSS
  5. About my SIH project
  6. Had to explain my projects
  7. How will you implement these particular technologies in MasterCard (in my case web development and Data Analysis)
  8. What will you like to work in, Data Analysis and database Management, or Web Development?
  9. How do you keep yourself updated with the recent trends in technology and like how do keep updating your skillset

I asked him for feedback, and he said: 

You know a lot of things and you are enthusiastic and that’s good but instead of trying to learn a lot of things focus on concepts and getting in-depth knowledge because I think anyone can learn syntax using google and stack overflow but you should know concepts.

HR Interview: Some people had two HR interviews but I only had one and interview went up till 11:30 pm and you get only 5-10 minutes to prepare for HR on Zoom

  1. Introduce Yourself
  2. Made me explain two of my projects
  3. Why MasterCard?
  4. Top 3 technologies according to you?
  5. If someone has no knowledge about the technical domain, how will you explain to them about engineering and what you do?

Any Questions for me: I asked anything you expect from your employees:

They said that I am happy that you value our company’s way of working, and we are open-minded and we want our employees to maintain that working culture.

Day 3: 

Result (12 got the job) some questions my friends were asked:

  1. What is your favorite subject? And then questions based on that
  2. SQL queries
  3. Stack and Queue based questions
  4. Strengths and Weaknesses

Heroic movement
