OANDA Developer Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
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.

Negotiation Details – The recruiters will lowball your salary expectations, if you feel confident you may want to stick to your figures.
