    Technical Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Guidewire (Sydney) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR.
    Technical phone interview with local resource.
    Code test, 3-4 hour test of general coding skills.
    3, 1 hour Face-To-Face interviews.

    The process was very rigorous and I felt very thorough. Although there was a lot of time invested personally in the process I felt that it was worth it. The process gave me confidence that they were quite selective in their hiring process and that the entire team would be stronger because of it.

    Interview Questions

    • There were a number of questions around JMS and Java best practices.   Answer Question
