Describe a difficult bug you fixed in a large application?

Bugs usually appear in new applications and software programs, and it is a software engineer’s responsibility to locate and resolve these issues. Errors like bugs are often the result of an unusual alignment of conditions. In your answer, give examples of your experience resolving these issues to showcase your technical aptitude, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Example: “At my last job, my manager sent me a bug report about one of our databases being stressed from an expensive query being called excessively from the UI. I started by checking the logs to determine when the bug started, and I reproduced the bug on the latest piece of code in production. I ran a git bisect to isolate the specific commit that introduced the bug and pulled the branch, and I was able to reproduce the issue. From there, I was able to use the browser’s developer tools to debug the issue.”
