Autonomy Interview Process


I applied at Autonomy for the post of Senior Software Engineer through an employee referral. I was interviewed at Autonomy in 2013 and the process took about two weeks. There were only two rounds in the hiring process at Autonomy.

Round 1 - Telephonic Screening
I got a call after a week since I had applied. The phone was from the HR of Autonomy. She told me that I would be screened on telephone by a technical person and if I get through it, I will then be called for the onsite interview. I received a call the next day and the first step in the hiring process began.
Only technical questions were asked in the screening. There was no room for other things. The questions were mainly focused on Java garbage collection and java multi-threading, semaphores. The questions were moderately difficult. But the speed at which they came could be a problem.

Round 2 - Face to Face Interview
I got a call from the HR after a couple of days and I was told that I was shortlisted for the onsite interview. My interview was scheduled after a few days.
The onsite interview lasted for about three hours and was tiring. A lot of technical questions were asked in that time period. Some of the questions that were asked:
Q1. Implement a queue with 2 stacks.
Q2. Have a large file with a number on each line with some duplicates. How will you find the duplicate ones?
Q3. Steps to resolve memory related issues when not much information is provided from the logs.

As you can see, the questions were not easy. But the good thing is that the interviewer was nice. He helped me answer the problems if I got stuck anywhere. I guess this is what professionalism is.

I received a call afterwards and was offered a handsome amount due to which I did not negotiate and accepted.


How to crack Autonomy Interview


It will be a difficult task for me to explain how to crack Autonomy interview in a few lines. Let me begin with the fact that the interview was not easy at all. So, the foremost thing will be to start studying again. They won't be interested in what you did in your previous company. They will be judging you for their requirements. So, it's time that you begin your preparations.

As you might have already noticed, that the telephonic screening will comprise majorly of the java based questions, you can start from there. At least you should be able to go through the screening so you can experience the onsite interview.

As far as the face to face interview is concerned, I can't give any sort of pointers as the questions came from anywhere. So you must be thorough with things to crack it. I would wish you all with luck lastly. Give your best at preparation and you will be able to impress them.
