Do you have experience working with different CASE tools? If so, what do you have experience with?
The world of software engineering has greatly benefited from advancements in computer aided software engineering tools. Because eG Innovations is at the forefront of the industry, your interviewer will be looking to hear which tools you have experience with. Make sure not to concern yourself with providing a correct answer here, but rather focus on your flexibility to learn new aides when needed while explaining what you have experience with.

Ryan's Answer #1
"In my current role, I regularly utilize both diagramming and web development tools. The diagram tools assist our software projects by outlining the system data and components in a graphical form for us and this saves us a great amount of time while also being very reliable. The web development tools greatly help me visualize site changes that I am making because I don't have a deep background in web development. If hired for this position, I'd look forward to learning other CASE tools for prototyping, quality assurance and maintenance."
Ryan's Answer #2
"During my career and in my experience with CASE tools, most of my experience is in the lower CASE elements that focus on coding and testing the software after initial development. CASE tools have certainly made life as a software engineer more efficient and effective and I'd look forward to learn any new CASE tools if hired for this position here at eG Innovations."

As an automation consultant here at eG Innovations, success will be measured in how effectively you can help customers conduct their business more efficiently. What would you consider your greatest success in implementing automation into a business proc
As a successful automation consultant with eG Innovations, you will work with clients on automating manual business processes to help make them more profitable. To get a sense of your ability to do this, your interviewer is looking to hear you describe what you would consider to be your biggest win in the realm throughout your career. In your answer, discuss the processes that you used to brainstorm, plan and implement the new automated process and give any information you can that proves the project was a success.

Ryan's Answer #1
"In a recent project, I worked with a retailer on creating an online customer self-service library where their customers could search and find answers to questions in a very short amount of time. This solution started with a need from the retailer to free up time with their call center and their floor reps in the stores. Once I was able to pull statistical data on the desire for consumers to be able to help themselves in a speedy manner, the process of building the online library was underway. Just a few short months after implementing the system, the call center had reduced their calls by 40% and the reps in stores were freed up to do more meaningful work."
Ryan's Answer #2
"A couple of years ago with my current organization, I consulted with a large manufacturer that was really trapped in the stone age when it came to their business processes. After an evaluation of their inventory processes and seeing that a great amount of time and money were being spent on manual process, I proposed a new automated inventory system for their production lines. While the key decision makers were hesitant at first with the initial cost of the automated system, we could easily prove that the system would pay for itself within a year solely based on saved labor. When accurate inventory factors were then considered, it was an easy decision for the move to the new system. After a year, the client reached back out to my and my CEO with many thanks for a great success."

At eG Innovations, we rely on a full team effort to deliver top quality products to our customers. Tell me about a time that you worked well as part of a team. Are you comfortable in a similar role here?
While this potential role with eG Innovations will require your to be an independent worker that can think on your feet, you will also need to work as part of a larger team that is working toward one common goal. Because of this fact, your interviewer will want to hear that you thrive in an environment where you work with team members from other disciplines than you are trained in. In your example, stress to your interviewer that you have excellent communication skills and that you fully understand that every person on a team plays a vital role in the organization's success.

Ryan's Answer #1
"Throughout my career, I've always enjoyed working as part of a larger team on the job and this personal enjoyment started with my love of and participation in team sports like baseball and basketball. Growing up playing sports, I learned that each team member brought a unique skill set that could help us achieve our goals. Through a great coaching staff that knew how to make these individual skills shine, this same philosophy holds true for a team that is looking to design a new software system. I know that my skills as an engineer are just part of the final product and I work very well with designers, architects, analysts and sales to help build the greatest system possible."
Ryan's Answer #2
"I am a people person by nature and my current role has me working very closely with our engineering and design staff on writing technical manuals for our products. While I certainly can handle long days at my computer in solitude, my desire to work hand in hand with others really sets me apart from my peers in this field. I have excellent verbal, listening and written communication skills that, if hired here at eG Innovations, your entire team would appreciate from my first day on the job."

In your current work, what are the important steps you take in the data validation process?
Depending on your training and your past roles prior to interviewing at eG Innovations, you may be familiar with one or two of the many trains of though regarding the steps of a data validation. Whatever formal process you are familiar with, be sure to check the boxes of discussing data screening and data verification as part of your process. Your interviewer will be looking to hear that you check those boxes as they are imperative in the software field.

Ryan's Answer #1
"As I embark on a data validation process in my current role, my first step is to roadmap a detailed plan to keep on task. I utilize benchmarks and the expectations of key stakeholders as my guide. Once underway, I validate the database and the data formatting to ensure that data is properly screened for its overall health. Then, by finishing with sampling, tests are performed to hopefully show that the data is useful within the system."
Ryan's Answer #2
"The most important steps in a data validation process are determining the data to sample, scouring the existing database and validating the final data format. My first step is to use my best judgment to determine if I will validate a sample or the entire data set. This determination is based on overall size of the set and the timeframe that I have to work on the project. Then, I take the time to screen data in the existing database to calculate the number of unique ID's and records to come into the system. Last, I have to verify that the source data matches the schema within the targe"

This approach is important to me as I see how Agile methodology helps employees deliver better products in less time. In my current role, team productivity increased by 34% once we introduced an Agile environment, and our on-time project rate skyrocketed another 18%."
