    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Indus Valley Partners.

    Interview Details

    I applied for an opening in Mumbai and had in total 2 technical rounds, 2 general, and 1 HR round. I got a call from the HR on the same evening that I applied and the first round was scheduled after 2 days.

    First round: The interview was with a Senior Business Analyst over telephone. It was scheduled for 20 mins, but went on for about an hour with questions revolving around my past work experience, derivative instruments (options, IRS, CDS, cross-currency), delta/gamma hedging, trading systems, position management, etc. He asked questions about each and every line on my resume. I was also asked as to why I want to join IVP.

    Second round: Got a call from the HR the next day saying that I had cleared the first round and the second round (telephonic) would be held the next day (after 48 hrs of 1st IV) The interview was with a Director and again revolved around my past work experience and some more grilling on derivatives and position management systems. It went on for about 20 mins.

    Third round: Got a call from the HR after the 2nd round saying that they want me to be interviewed by their managing partner in New York on the same evening. This went on for about 15 mins and the MD asked me about my exp in NY (I had worked there before for one of their clients). Couple of technical questions on delta/gamma. He asked me as to where I would like to join - I mentioned Mumbai. Told me that he would ask the Mumbai Director to meet me.

    Fourth round: The fourth round (first F2F round at their Mumbai office) was held after about 2 weeks (the director was overseas until then). It was general discussion revolving around my work experience and the work that I will be doing. Lasted for about 15 mins.

    Fifth round: On the same day, got a call from HR - asked about my background, family, education and confirmed the offer.

    Overall it was a smooth process. The technical questions were tough, but the interviewers were friendly and helpful.

    Interview Questions
    • Impact of volatility on option prices - OTM, ITM variations, delta/gamma hedging
      Cross-currency forwards concept and variations
      In-depth questioning on trade flow - capture, risk, PnL, reconciliation, etc.

    Trust me interview process is not so good. They do not maintain any standard to select interviewer to interview any candidate. One of my friend who has experience of 6+ years, was interviewed by a person of the company who has experience of 2+ years.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Indus Valley Partners in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    This company came for Campus Placement to our College 2 days back. First they held a pre-placement talk that their work-timings are very flexible. Then hey mentioned it will be 1:30pm to 10:30pm. I still wonder what is flexible about their timing? Basically you have no social life.
    In the placement paper, there were two sections:
    1. Aptitude Paper: 7 questions out which there was 1 para-jumble, 1 passage-summary, 1 question to find meaning of limelight, 4 quant problems easy level ones.
    2. Pseudo-Code: 2 options--> to find angle between hour hand and minute hand or a program involving funds, searching, matching and file handling.
    No negative marks. They happened to mention that pseudo code question was compulsory.....which was quite obvious.
    Interview experience of my friends is mentioned below.
    They were asked about themselves, their project and questions related to the concepts involved in their project. Selection process seemed to very random and this opinion was common among many candidates, even those who got selected.

    Interview Questions
    • Two controversial questions were there in the paper:
      1. The politicians try to remain in the limelight.
      Controversy: centre of attraction or object to public notice?
      Ans: Centre of Attraction.(How can one consider limelight as centre of attraction when the subject is a politician and not some celeb.)

      2. The pseudo code of angle between hands of a clock.
      Controversy: They did not give any clue not to consider the the movement of hour hand by 0.5 degrees every minute.
      Ans. For their solution at 12:30 the angle is 180 degrees
      As per reality, the angle is 180-15=165 degrees
      Unexpected: Their H.R. was correcting the paper so. I shall leave the rest for you'll to assume.
