I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP in January 2014.

Interview Details – I got a phone interview for about 45mins. They asked me some questions about my background and research experience. I was very surprised to be asked about my GRE scores. I took it long time ago. He also gave me some probabilities (coins) questions, and I got it right. I guess they want smart people. If you can persuade them you are smart, you have advantage to be hired.

Interview Question – Nothing is particular difficult, but you need to find a way to impress them.   Answer Question

Assistant Trader

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP.

Interview Details – Fairly straightforward interviews with a large focus on conditional probability, Bayes' Theorem, expected value, and creative thinking. Not as much brainteasers as other interviews, but you should still be familiar with some of the most common ones. Each of the three rounds involves progressively harder/trickier iterations of these topics, but the final round in addition involves a group interview with other candidates to see how you solve the same types of problems as before in teams.

Interview Question – Which is bigger, 2^(1/3) or 10^(1/10)?   View Answer
