    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PitchBook in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty intense. There was an initial interview that covered my background, base knowledge of the VC/PE industry, level of interest, culture fit, etc. The next step was a series of interviews. There were 3 individuals who came through one at a time to interview for 3 hours all at one time. At the end, there was a Caliper test given that took about 2 hours to finish. I also met with the CEO at the end of the interview for about 10 minutes.

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at PitchBook in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    A very professional process. Met with multiple people including CEO, senior researchers and VP of Products. They provided a very clear overview of the position, company culture and opportunity for growth. Came into the office three different days, each provided more details about the role and gave me the chance to really see what a day in the life would entail. The office is also very cool, but it is the people that make the real difference.
