  • Last Updated : 17 Dec, 2020

Round 1 (Project Manager discussion 30min): This round consists of a discussion with the project manager, where he would like to know the background, problem-solving skills, and experience of the candidate in that project, which he is going to hire for. It is just a familiar discussion, and he collects useful information before proceeding to the second round if he thinks, the candidate is suitable for this position.

Round 2 (Live Coding Challenge 60min): This round consists of coding challenges which include bug fixing, missing code, information about the java component, etc. It will be done on the Maxis platform live, It is the same as Hacker Rank but Maxis has its own. It will be an alive and recorded session. However, before this session, the candidate will receive an email that includes what type of question will be asked. Below is a sample:

Coding Test guidelines and Questions: We invite the applicant to relax and enjoy solving day to day working experience based java problems and share information about roles and responsibilities. It is highly encouraged to use Java 8 version or best-known methods to solve these Challenges. There is a total of 10 questions that need to give answers.

  1. Fibonacci Series

    Given method call is : Fibonacci(0, 1, 10, 1)
    Print first 10 numbers in Fibonacci series : 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34
