How do you feel cloud computing has positively impacted the software industry?
While the reasons are plentiful as to how cloud computing has had a direct impact on developing and refining software for organizations, your interviewer is looking to hear which reasons you are willing to speak most passionately about. However you answer this question, try to either focus on the ease and accessibility for end users or cost savings for organizations in your answer.

Ryan's Answer #1
"Being in the software industry for over 20 years, I feel like the biggest impact that the cloud has had reflects directly to our customers in the software industry. In days of yore, we spent years working through software updates and releases. And now, I look to how we are continuously rolling out small scale, yet impactful, updates through the cloud and end users are able to see that impact the next day!"
Ryan's Answer #2
"One commonly overlooked area where I feel cloud based systems have brought a major improvement is in analytics. Ten years ago, it took a lot of time and resources to pull relevant data to build analytics and visualization tools. Today, information can be automatically built to pull in the snap of a finger and that is something that I never take for granted in my work."

Here at CaseWare International, we subscribe to the domain-driven design approach for our customers. If hired for this role, what will you do in your first 90 days on the job to ensure you can sustain in this job with that approach?
Simply put, domain-driven design is the concept of utilizing the business needs of the end user in designing and creating software for them. To do this, the software architects at CaseWare International need to have a firm understanding of the problems that their customers face and how the software they develop will help tackle those problems. For this question, be sure to do your research on CaseWare International and the products they put to market and discuss how you will take the time to learn about the industries necessary to implement the domain-driven design approach.

Ryan's Answer #1
"In my current role, I've worked with large plastics and metals manufacturers in a domain-driven design approach and this required me to step outside of my comfort zone to learn manufacturing processes along the way in designing great products for that industry. If hired here at CaseWare International, the financial industry would become my new passion in life to learn and understand. I know that my role as a software architect would require that I have a great working knowledge of the industry and I am willing to do what is necessary to get there."
Ryan's Answer #2
"If I were lucky enough to be offered this position, my work would be dedicated to learning the property and casualty insurance industries inside and out. I would do this through talking with colleagues and customers to learn how our products help our end users succeed. If needed, I would also take the time to read more on the industry as well."

How do you feel that your prior experience would benefit you in a training role here at CaseWare International?
When CaseWare International rolls out new software to their customers, they rely on this role to train end-users on utilizing the new software. Successful candidates can come from either a focused technical role and learn how to effective train people or they can come from formal business training background and learn the software aspect of the job. Either way, be sure to project success in this role by talking about your ability to be an effective trainer in this role based on the experience that you will be bringing to the table if hired at CaseWare International.

Ryan's Answer #1
"As you can see from my resume, I have extensive business training experience in my current role I've been working in for the past eight years. In this role, I travel onsite to the locations of our customers to train staff on our products and how to use them in a healthcare setting. My business education and training background has prepared me to create effective training programs and be a natural leader in front of others. If fortunate enough to be hired for this position, the initial hurdle that I would have to overcome would be to learn the software I would be training people on to be able to talk about the features and benefits in the presence of customers."
Ryan's Answer #2
"Having been in software industry for many years now, I bring a great amount of technical knowledge surrounding usage of programs and training end users. With a majority of my experience being on the sales end of the software business, a transition into the training side would be very natural for me as I have the ability to speak at great lengths about the technical aspects of a program in a manner that the everyday user can understand and appreciate."

What do you feel are the primary features and benefits of the Java programming language?
As a company that utilizes Java, CaseWare International and your interviewer want to make sure that you have an understanding of the Java programming language and they do so by asking this question. Obviously a language packed with unique features, talk about the features that you can speak the most knowledgeably about and tie your direct experience to.

Ryan's Answer
"When I started working with Java three years ago, the first huge benefit was the fact that the Java syntax was based on C++. At that time, I had a great working knowledge of C++ and my transition to Java was absolutely seamless. The other amazing feature that I've come to appreciate with Java is how robust the memory management is in exception handling and automatic garbage collection."

If you were asked to review a colleague's code that they had written, what key things would you look for?
For this question, your interviewer will obviously be looking to hear that you have adequate knowledge when it comes to coding processes. But most importantly, your interviewer will be looking to gauge your ability to be a team player and focus on the bigger picture when working on a project. In your answer, focus on your attention to detail and your ability to help others when needed.

Ryan's Answer #1
"As an experienced software engineer, I fully expect my colleagues to reach out to me for my insight and I never hesitate to provide open and honest feedback. When asked to do this, my main focus is ensuring that the code is readable and functional. If there are lines of code that need to be removed, I don't hesitate to let my colleague know that while also giving them feedback on why I feel it is unnecessary."
Ryan's Answer #2
"When I'm asked to do this in my current position, my main focus is on regulatory requirements that were put in place for the project and security issues. I work with a team of great engineers that are very efficient coders and these two areas are most often overlooked."
