Software Development Interview

Software Development

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Renaissance Technologies LLC in January 2008.

Interview Details – I spent the day talking to about eight different people, starting with the most junior and ending with the chief scientist. People were in general quite friendly, were mostly interested in assessing my competence rather than assessing personality types or performance under pressure. Employees were of the type usually found in physics departments... a bunch of quite smart people with a mix of oddball personality traits.

Interview Question – explain the data type specified from an obfusticated C declaration   Answer Question
