somewhere in… is a Norwegian offshore software developer company based in Bangladesh. since the beginning in may 2005, i am working for this company as a web application developer. the first thing that impressed was the process of interview. the whole system is divided into three round. from each of this round you have to qualify yourself for next step.
in first round, this is just an introductory from our head of growth and head of opportunities. whoa whoa whoa!! – this is not a boring introduction but funny hilarious and definitely a phase where you can prove your attention and quality. this session with fantastic piece of cakes and drinks is a very interesting part of the whole interview process.
after you qualify in first round, well it is a bit tough and you have to prove your skill on the respective track for which you applied. for example if its under java team, you will face some problems relevant to java. most surprising part of this round is that it is a participatory problem solving part. you will find yourself with randomly chosen two team members. that means each team will have three members. after grouping, each of these team have to solve a specific problem. well, the team value will be counted and you have to prove your participating skill, inclusiveness, imagination and engagement.
from this second round, some talents are chosen for the final part. in that part these talents have to meet face to face with a team of developers and of course our head of growth and head of opportunities. this is the final round and ya, this is like somewhat a traditional face to face interview.
the whole interview process is full of fun, learning and you will experience a world class interview system, no matter who you are, somewhere in… will find out the talent inside you.
