Interview Details – three round of phone interview and then invited to Atlanta on-site. Meet around ten people and have two written tests. Interviews are not that hard but do combine tech questions and logic questions. Peoples are pretty nice and they will move to a new headquarter building.

Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange in November 2013.

Interview Details – They tend to ask questions that are not directly related the job description. The questions they asked were generally:
Tell us about options
What do you know about derivatives
What's the in-the-money strike price for a straddle option strategy if the stock price is $X.
Tell us about the option Greeks.

Afterwards, I was given a very simple MS Excel test to do on my own. You can really Google all of the answers if you want to.

Easy Interview

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Atlanta, GA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange in June 2013.

Interview Details – Had to take a 90 mins written test. The test was more of trying to test "how good you know the syntax", rather than concepts. I believe I did very well in the test since I was preparing for pl/sql certification exam. But never heard any feed back from them. Which is very unprofessional.

Sales Interview

Sales
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange in August 2011.

Interview Details – The Hiring manager was very non-professional and refused my resume by stating that they knew my current employer didn't use their e-confirm system and would my currently employer want it? The hiring manager knew someone from my current company that had used this platform in their former employment and therefore wanted to know if my current company would be interested. No word about competencies or any hint that the hiring manger had even read my application at all.

Interview Question – No questions asked... that was the hardest!   Answer Question

HelpDesk Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange in February 2010.

Interview Details – Liked the office and company. Brief phone interview and online skills test related to trading/market vocabulary, math and concepts. That led to in person interview. Hiring manager did not seem very formal and interview took tangents that really did not seem relevant to seeing whether I was qualified for specific position I was applying for. He asked about specific operating functions of the businesses of previous jobs I had. Frustrating and made him seem a bit incompetent. Other person I spoke to seemed more interested in whether it was something I really wanted and what my relevant experiences were. He however was not in hiring role.

Finance Interview

The process took a day - interviewed at IntercontinentalExchange in November 2011.

The interview consisted of separate meetings with all three members of the finance department. Questions ranged from, tell me about what you have done thus far and why you think you are prepared for this position to tell me about our competitors and how our services differ. Two of the three all asked about OTC products vs. futures.
