    I have been working at Rearden Commerce

    Pros

    I had a good learning experience technically but there are a lot of non technical managers which is not essentially a good thing. Start up culture, there is food/drinks, fun activities, games etc. Not that process heavy but i see that changing everyday. Good starting salary but bad adjustments. The company makes an effort to attract talent but doesnt know how to retain it.

    Cons

    Lacks QA management ladder. The organization is very development-centric, They like to think that they value quality of application but they dont. Upper management is very volatile, high turn over rates. Since i had joined the company i have seen the upper management change several times. Every new management brings their own management style. Very top heavy not enough engineers. A lot of people enjoy fancy title and get away with not having to technically contribute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Design QA management ladder
    Reduce the numbers of managers and director/sr directors
    Stick to a business direction.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bangalore
    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Rearden Commerce in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was as scheduled.

    1st Round
    -----------
    I was asked basic java questions.
    Then I was asked to design my own AOP pattern of Spring framework assuming that it doesn't exist.(It is exactly same as Observer Pattern. If you know it then you are done.)
    Next came a puzzle that I was unable to answer and hence I was not selected.

    Interview Questions
    • Puzzle
      -------
      Eg:
      Assume you have 4 strings formed from a,b,c,d like abcd, acdb, adbc, bcda
      Output should be "bc",3 as "bc" is the largest substring repeated in 3 input strings.

      Few more examples to understand it.
      Inp1: {abcd,abcd,abcd,abcd}
      Out1: abcd,4

      Inp2: {abcd,dabc,acbd}
      Out2: abc,2

      Inp3: {abcd,dabc,adbc}
      Out3: bc,3

      All the chars are distinct and all the chars are repeated in each string(You can relax these restrictions if you want).

      If 4 input strings are given then the output should be like, if you have subString of size 3 present in 3 inputs and subString of size 4 present in 3 inputs but a subString of size 2 present in 4 inputs then you should print the last one as output. But as it is obvious a subString of size 1 will be repeated in all the inputs but you should consider subString od size > 2 and repeated in max of the inputs.

      To say mathematically, high priority is given to the number of repetitions followed by the size of the subString.
