H10’s Guide to AI Interview Questions

Hi, I’m Sheikh. I build AI teams & technical solutions at H10.

I’ve spent the past 10 years in the word of AI in product & sales roles at early stage startups, incubators, and Amazon. Each month, my team and I at H10, interview 1K+ people for various tech roles. Below are some of the questions we use for AI specific rules.

I also host “Humans of AI” – a podcast feature AI leaders to learn about their careers, how they got where they are, and tips for people new to the industry. Recent episodes feature execs from Qualcomm, AMD, Graphcore, and more.

My biggest interview tip?

Every question is an opportunity for you to share your unique background and how you think. Tell a story. Show the interview how you are a hero in your story. And make sure your interviewer can easily follow along and take notes by using the STAR format.

Bonus: Have a favorite interview question? Interested in getting notifications on new AI roles across the US? Send me an email at sheikh@h10capital.com with the subject line “AI Superstar”

Below are a list of questions for various types of roles on an enterprise AI team. The biggest source of overlap in each category is the important of communication and working with others. AI is a team sport, and working well with others is critical.
