Developer Interview

Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at OANDA in May 2008.

Interview Details – The first interview was over the phone - the recruiter simply listed off a few programming and networking questions which are designed to weed out those without any experience. The second interview was by a panel of three people + recruiter. The questions were mostly on programming, with a few trick questions. A lot of networking questions may be asked depending on the interviewer. A second interview was later assigned with two more senior members, which consisted mostly of explaining processes and generic questions.

Interview Questions

  • I can't recall the exact code, but it's a simple loop which has two variables inside it. One of the variables is auto-incremented, but under a certain condition the last increment is lost.   Answer Question
  • How would you find if two threads are in dead-lock? How do you resolve dead-lock?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The recruiters will lowball your salary expectations, if you feel confident you may want to stick to your figures. From the experience of others, the company is not willing to accommodate demands for longer vacations. Options in the company and bonuses are not provided on paper.
