Share This Job With Others


I went through the Adobe process some months back for a dev position (I have 3+ yrs of exp.). They have a written test day followed by (if you cleared the tests!) a interview day.
Tests are fairly easy hey I sailed through them! Typical quantitative, problem solving (puzzles), coding. Some areas to brush up on for the tests:
- C pointers (goes without saying!)
- Searching (bsearch)
- Binary trees and in-order, pre-order etc.
- Recursion (a C test of some standing without recursion? Nah..!)
- Automata / state machines
- General C concepts - diff between macro and inline fn. diff between static, local, dynamic vars etc.

Tests last for 2-3 hours but are not very intensive (if youve taken the JEE youll know what intensive is).

Interview day is.. intensive! My suggestion is.. no matter how much youve worked on C/C++ and low-level algo stuff - DONT go into the interview day without 4-5 days of solid revision of core concepts.

I had to go through 4 tech and 1 hr interview. Youll either be asked *very* deep technology or no technology (only puzzles that is) no general probing tech questions here.
Tech areas that were covered:
- C++ - inheritance, polymorphism - VPTR/VTBL questions, operator overloading, templates
- Linked lists and trees! Lots about this
- Find general algos for list questions etc
- Deeper areas like compression algos, algo complexity

Tech questions to puzzles split was 40:60. That is mostly puzzles but this is upto you - you might be asked which you want. If youre confident about knowing tech inside out go for tech questions easier to prove yourself. Puzzles have a luck component.

Great place to work btw very cool plush office. Lots of smart people.

So how did I fare? Do I work for Adobe now? Thats the mystery
