I'm afraid that will never be known. Sorry.

 

I was an HR manager for another company (not SW), and it's not discussed. As hard as it may be to hear, companies just don't have the time to debate why people were not selected. They focus on those that were, or those that are still in  the pipeline.

 

Again, sorry.

The initial interview unfortunately is your “make it or break it” time with recruiters. I often think that since many people are not good at interviewing, but awesome in the work place, the interview should not be the decision maker. Continue to be positive, and do your research. When you come in for an interview as the model employee, tables are turned and it’s you who is interviewing the recruiters. They need to convince you on why you should want to work for their company.
