Analytics Scientist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at LinkedIn in June 2009.

Interview Details – I applied on line for the Analytics Scientist position with LinkedIn and they contacted me back after 2 weeks. The HR lady was very nice and helpful. After she filled me in with all the necessary info we set up a time for 45 minutes phone interview with the Manager of the Analytics department.

Interview Question – I was asked about the way I would design the "people you may know" application of LinkedIn and about the way I would group "similar" people and jobs with people etc. More or less it was a discussion about collaborative filtering , classification and prediction models (k-means clustering, bayesian model, decision trees ).   View Answers (2)
