Temenos Interview Process


I applied at Temenos for the post of Software Engineer through a staffing agency. I was interviewed at Temenos in 2012 and the process took two weeks. There were four rounds in the hiring process at Temenos which I shall explain below.

Round 1 - Telephonic Screening
This screening was done over a call from Geneva, Switzerland. The call was about explaining the job description and Roles and Responsibilities of the requirement. I was asked basic questions about myself and asked if I will be able to stand up to the expectations they have from their future employee. Nothing else was asked.

Round 2 - Written Test
After the screening, I got a call from the HR and I was called at their office in Bangalore for a written test. This test was technical in nature. Two hours were provided to complete the test. The test was moderately difficult but time taking. Anyhow, I was able to complete the test in the given time but it was not an easy job.

Round 3 - Technical Interview
After I cleared the written test, I had to take a face to face interview with the Head of the Delivery Projects from Geneva. The interview lasted for about 45 minutes. The interviewer was quite friendly and polite. The questions that were asked in this round were mostly based on Java/J2EE. Some of the questions are as follows:
Q1. What is the role of JVM in Garbage Collection?
Q2. What is byte code in Java?
Q3. Questions based on XMLs.
After the technical questions, there were some questions regarding the behavior under a given situation. He was trying to assess me on how I would behave under continuous pressure or stress. One of the question that I can remember:
Q1. If you are following Agile-Scrum methodology and you have been given a chance to implement a new feature on your product which being asked by your client. On eighth day, you realize that you can't deliver the product within 10 days, then how will you handle the situation in front of your client.

Round 4 - HR Interview
Nothing much was asked in the HR round as all such questions were already asked in the previous round only. This round was basically meant for the negotiations overt the salary. Yes it was negotiable and I was able to negotiate to my preference. Other than that, they wanted to know how soon I could join if I was hired by them.


How to crack Temenos Interview


Interview process at Temenos was one of the most streamlined I have ever faced. The staff including the HR were very informative. They kept me informed of the proceedings and guided me as well. There was no hassle involved. I was informed well before my interviews.

This is very helpful during the interview process for the interviewees. Then, talking about the details, you need not prepare anything for the screening. You resume will speak for you and you will be briefed about the company and position only.

The technical written test is somewhat easy but not too easy. You must be prepared to solve codes and problems quickly or you won't be able to complete it within the given time.

About the technical interview, like I have said already, prepare well on Java and J2EE if you want to crack it. The interviewer will be extremely knowledge-full and thus you must be able to cast an impression proving your intellectuality.

Other than that, you don't have to worry about the HR round. It's only for the negotiations. If you are good at negotiating, and you have cast a good impression so far, you will be able to grab your desired package.

Tough River Crossing Riddle

This one is a bit of tricky river crossing puzzle than you might have solved till now. We have a whole family out on a picnic on one side of the river. The family includes Mother and Father, two sons, two daughters, a maid and a dog. The bridge broke down and all they have is a boat that can take them towards the other side of the river. But there is a condition with the boat. It can hold just two persons at one time (count the dog as one person).

No it does not limit to that and there are other complications. The dog can’t be left without the maid or it will bite the family members. The father can’t be left with daughters without the mother and in the same manner, the mother can’t be left alone with the sons without the father. Also an adult is needed to drive the boat and it can’t drive by itself.

How will all of them reach the other side of the river?
