Question 1 of 26
When have you been on a team project that failed? What did you learn from that experience?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
Glu Mobile wants to be successful in all that they do; however, there will be times when plans fall apart, and a project flops. The interviewer would like to know how you respond to situations that do not go your way.

We all experience perceived fails in our career. Failure is nothing to be embarrassed about so do not hesitate to describe a failure you've experienced in the past.

The key to a great answer is to include how you learned from that failure, and how you improved your work performance after learning from the crash.

Try to keep your example non-critical; for instance, avoid telling the interviewer how your team forgot to test new code, and it cost your company $150,000 due to downtime. Avoid blaming any particular person and instead, use words like 'we' and 'team' to describe the situation.

Finally, be sure to tell the interviewer that, while you were very disappointed in the group's failure, you took the opportunity to learn from the experience.

Question 2 of 26
Are you more comfortable in a startup environment, or with an established company?

How to Answer
The interviewer is interested in seeing if the environment at Glu Mobile is what you need to be successful. The best response is that you can thrive in a startup or an established company; however, that may not be the case.

Think of the pros and cons of each. Working for an established company may feel more secure; however, it may also be more challenging to work your way up. Then, in a startup, you may have a lot of creative freedom, but the pay may not be as lucrative.

Discuss with the interviewer the type of environment you are most comfortable with, remain positive, and draw in parts of the culture at Glu Mobile in your response.

How to Answer
Amazon Web Services, a subsidiary of Amazon, provides gaming companies reliable and affordable on-demand cloud computing services. A company can join AWS for free, and only pay what they use. Gaming companies such as Ubisoft use AWS for Assassins Creed, Far Cry, and Just Dance. Discuss any production experience you have with AWS or another cloud computing service.

Question 4 of 26
Which are your favorite automated mobile app testing tools?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
It is crucial that every mobile game, before its release, goes through rigorous testing to check for bugs, slow performance, and feature malfunctions. When a game is released too soon and has bugs or lags, it will receive poor reviews and a significant decline in downloads. For these reasons, it's imperative to test correctly.

There are many tools available for testing mobile applications and games such as:

- Appium
- Robotium
- Frank
- MonkeyRunner
- UI Automator
- MonkeyTalk
- SeeTest
- Testdroid
- Calabash

Talk to the interviewer about the automated mobile app testing tools with which you are most familiar and experienced. To make it easier on the interviewer, you can rate your expertise from 1-10 or describe yourself as beginner, intermediate, advanced, or expert level in the tools that you mention. If Glu Mobile has said which means they use, be sure to reference these.

Question 5 of 26
Tell me about a time that there was a delay in the project and how did you handle that delay?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
In your answer, be sure to tell your prospective employer why there was a delay, but most importantly, how you handled it and got back on track. It's important to use the STAR format for questions like these: situation, task, action, result. Situation: the delay. Task: resolving it quickly and getting back on track. Action: how you went about executing the task. Result: how the steps you took to resolve it led to the effective and successful resolution of that delay.
