Quantitative Analyst Interview

Quantitative Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at State Street.

Interview Details – phone interview: started with a brief description of the role, the culture,... Then moved on to a lot of technical questions (statistics, time series and programming). The questions were fairly basic but you need to brush up on these subjects if you are a little rusty.
I got the results really quickly after that

Interview Question – How many sharks are there in the Pacific Ocean?   Answer Question
