If you were given the task of having to both encrypt and compress data during transmission, which would you do first, and why?
This is a typical situational and task-oriented interview question that asks you to explain how you perform a task, the step-by-step process you follow, and what your reasoning is behind the process that you followed. Please note that the interviewer will be observing how you respond to this question. They will be looking at whether or not you appear to be confident in your response, or get nervous and panic while answering this question. Always keep calm, and take a deep breath before answering each question. Even if you have to wait a few seconds to respond, that's fine. It also shows the interviewer that you think through the questions before answering.

In short, both data compression and data encryption are methods that transform data into a different format. When you're talking about the tasks, and what you do in the process, let the interviewer know that even though data compression and encryption are methods that transform data, it's the execution of the process and the minor details that are important and not overlooked.

Tom's Answer #1
"Yes, there is a process that I follow that ensures safe transmission of data. When I design a data compression scheme, there are some important factors such as the level of compression required, the amount of distortion introduced by the compression, and the computational hardware/appliance resources required to compress and decompress the data.
This is especially true in the case of video compression because when you decompress, you will need to ensure that you get a stream fast enough so the viewing isn't interrupted by spooling or other latency issues. People often think that by decompressing video data, it will stream faster, but one of the issues is it requires a large amount of storage space, which could be a problem for many companies."
Tom's Answer #2
"I've heard people say compress then encrypt. The problem here is that if you encrypt first, then you'll have nothing but random data to work with, which will destroy any potential benefit you will get from the compression process. With data encryption, I focus on developing encryption algorithms (ciphers) that are hard to break by an attacker due to the computational complexities, which makes it even more difficult to be broken. Since both the sender and receiver share a secret key, it needs to be protected so that data communication is kept private between those two parties."

As the onsite consultant for our clients here at Phreesia, you may be privy to confidential information or data. How can we ensure that you will hold client data security in the highest confidence?
The consulting world at Phreesia will put your in a position to have access to client databases, applications and directories that could potentially contain sensitive data. Consultants have a responsibility to their clients to maintain that privacy. Be sure that your interviewer understands that you adhere to that responsibility by talking about past experiences where you have been exposed to and kept sensitive data confidential. It is important to talk about your own personal morals and values in your answer to this question.

Tom's Answer #1
"Having worked as a consultant for a large healthcare medical record software organization, I had access to thousands of medical records with each new client that we brought aboard. While often required to sign confidentiality and HIPAA agreements with each client, my own values would never allow me to compromise the secure data of a patient. If hired for this role, I would hold the confidential data with your clients in the highest regard and wouldn't hesitate to take all measures possible to ensure that data is secure."
Tom's Answer #2
"Successful consulting relationships with customers are built on trust and I value and respect the trust that my customers show my by maintaining all policies on confidentiality with each customer. My current role in the banking industry allows me access to the software of many banking institutions when I am onsite with them. When working with staff at bank branches, I don't discuss any personal financial data that I have access to even with them."

What programming languages would you consider yourself fluent in?
While this question gives your interviewer insight into the diversity of your programming language experience, they most importantly want to know that you are adaptable and able to learn on the fly if needed. Talk about the different languages that you consider yourself fluent in and, if possible, do as much research into Phreesia as you can prior to your interview and try to speak to the specific languages that they work with.

Tom's Answer #1
"From the start of college, where software engineering grew into a passion for me, I've become very fluent in Java, JavaScript and C++. My current role has me working primarily with C++, but I pride myself on my ability and passion to learn new programming languages and would be able to do so if hired for this role with Phreesia."
Tom's Answer #2
"During my training to be an engineer and then in my current role since graduating, a majority of my experience falls within Python. My current role delves deeply into artificial intelligence and Python is awesome with this advanced technology. As I understand it from talking to another engineer here at Phreesia, a requirement would be for me to learn Scala. Though I haven't worked directly with Scala, I believe my experience and willingness to learn would have me up and running in no time if hired for this role."

Here at Phreesia, we utilize feasibility studies with our customers to consider all impacts of a new system for them. Do you have familiarity working with feasibility studies in your work as a software engineer?
To properly answer this question, make sure you understand the reasons why feasibility studies are important. In essence, a feasibility study helps to determine if conditions are right to implement a project. The study looks at economic, operation, legal and technical aspects of the project to determine if moving forward with the project is best for all involved. If you have experience in the studies, talk about a specific time that you utilized a study, the steps you took and explain why it was important to do in the end. Make sure that your interviewer walks away from the interview comfortable with your ability to utilize feasibility studies in your work.

Tom's Answer
"I do have familiarity with feasibility studies throughout my career as a software engineer. On a current project that I am working on, we utilized a study to analyze if the project we were tasked with could use current technologies available to us while meeting a timeline for completion. On my end, I had to spend time researching the resources that were available, gauge their functionality and come up with a plan for action based on that. Where the project stands today, we are on pace for delivering a revolutionary system for a large security industry customer."
