    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Markit (Boulder, CO) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I attended a meet and greet/interview session for a web developer training position that they were offering. They said in the job description that they wanted someone who knew a programming language (discounting HTML and CSS). But when I was interviewed by 2 managers they asked me questions on CSS. I figure why they did this is they already picked their limit of people in front of me, so they just gave me a subject I wasn't prepared for and I was suppose to fail at. Also, during the meet and greet which was before the interview they seemed to focus their enthusiasm on a young guy from India while other candidates in our group seemed to be ignored (even though some asked very good questions and had very good knowledge of the company- more than the guy from India). I pretty much knew before I was going to be interviewed that the guy from India got the job due to where he is from and him having a friend who works there. The people were ok. I met some cool people and one guy I could tell who didn't like me from the start. The management seemed full of themselves and for offering an entry level position with training they make it too hard to get into. However reading reviews from employees on this site before the interview, the people seemed happy and it didn't seem stressful. Based on what I saw I wouldn't mind working there, but also this was after hours and I don't know how it really is there. in the end, I know I didn't get the job, but it's no loss based on the low pay and the high amount of stress.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Markit (New York, NY) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely fast. They emailed me and asked me to come in. I met with 6 people over 2.5 hours. Most questions were very general and were more to see if I would be a personality fit at the firm. Some questions were specific to the role I was applyng for. It always helps if you are technologically oriented when interviewing at Markit. Any VBA/ SQL skills can only help.

    Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Markit (Boulder, CO) in July 2009.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by their HR department, which they refer to as Culture and Management, to schedule a phone screening with a member of the development team. After passing the phone interview, on-site interviews were scheduled. I first met with the HR Manager, who described the position and asked questions about my availability and salary requirements. She stated the salary range of the position and coincidentally, the high end of the range was the same as the bottom end of the range I entered on the application. I should also note that the high end of the salary range is 15% lower than the average salary for this position in the Boulder area. Next I was placed at a computer and given a 30 minute technical test which was pretty basic. I then spent 30 minutes with the two team leads. Their questions were primarily situational. After this, there was an interview with a director and VP of development. A couple of days later, I was called by HR and asked to meet with the COO and the VP of Enginnering. These meetings were on different days and added two weeks to the interview process. The interview with the COO was more of a discussion about the position and corporate culture. The interview with the VP of Engineering included more questions about my technical background.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Markit (Boulder, CO) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Most of the interview process involved speaking with other developers and hr staff. My process involved 2 phone interviews, a request for some code samples, and one in-person interview with numerous developers and hr representatives. The office environment is very laid back, though their dress code should not be yours during the interview process. They tend to value creativity, talent, and experience. In addition, since I was an out of town candidiate, they offered to cover some of my expenses (some, not all, though that is better than most companies these days). All in all, the process was fair and the people were pleasant. The only sour point for me was not receiving an offer.

    I was called in and met with about 8 different Design leads, and finally I met with the Creative Director. I and they asked some questions, I showed them all some work samples, and it was very chit chatty and not very formal. It seemed that they cared a lot about how well we all connected.

    Straightforward. I asked for a higher salary, they notched it down a little, I accepted. I may have been able to notch it back up slightly.

Relaxed dress code. Free lunch 4 days a week. The ping pong table gets a lot of use. They are OK with you working on other software on your own time, as long as you declared it before employment and it is not related to their business. They are flexible and understanding of situations that come up. They are more interested in your work output and results than rigid rules. Good rewards for finding people for them to hire.
