    IT Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Brevan Howard.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this role through a recruiter. The job description was a tad vague and so I wasn't wholly sure what to expect.

    I was told by the recruiter to do a fair amount of research on the company, but at no point in the interview was I asked 'Why Brevan Howard?' or

    I had a face to face interview with two senior members of their team, and a third member from their Quant team also came in to ask some more technical questions.

    Overall, I found the interviewers friendly, with a good sense of humour. The interview was not quite what I was expecting but I wouldn't say it was overly difficult. I lacked the technical skills for the role but for someone who had some experience of these I don't think they would have struggled.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Brevan Howard in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    there were 4 interviews with lots of quant questions. some of the guys were not particularly friendly which is probably a reflection of the type of person that works there - arrogant. still, it was a great salary on offer.
