    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at International Marketmakers Combination.

    Interview Details

    Dropped my resume at a career fair; after completing a relatively easy assessment, I was invited to a basic behavioral on-campus interview. Was invited to the IMC offices; first night was some more assessments and dinner, while the second day was 4 interviews, one of which was behavioral and the rest of which were technical. Did fine on the interviews, but ultimately didn't get the position. Predominantly candidates from MIT and Harvard.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at International Marketmakers Combination.

    Interview Details

    Pretty run of the mill "prove that you can code" questions. They let you talk about the solution on a white board and then critique what you have done. I got into an argument with the interviewer because he said what I did was not workable, when in reality it was. When I went back to school, I sent him the code stating that it works. Never heard back from him.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult or unexpected. HR will ask you some basic questions - walk through your resume, what do you do for fun etc   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    People and their culture was not to my liking. Looking for a more US centric firm where I can understand the language

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at International Marketmakers Combination in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    There was one phone interview (they asked how to remove duplicates from an array) followed by onsite interview in Chicago. During the onsite, I was put up in a nice hotel and had a full day of interviews. They have coding station where you do some fairly basic Java coding (code a few functions to implement using hashsets) , an algs station (find anagrams of words, a byte suffix problem), and an HR station (go over your resume piece by piece). It was a fairly good experience overall.

    We were given a number of different tasks from Algorithms to actual coding round during the interview. They really want you to relax and succeed. There are a lot of smart java devs at the company and there is a lot that can be learned at the firm.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at International Marketmakers Combination in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Before the in person interview, they made me take two online tests, one was basic logic and the other was math/graphs. Both were pretty easy. After that, I was contacted for an in person interview. Typical interview questions plus a brainteaser. My interviewer seemed like she was rushing through the interview though, so it wasnt a very good experience
