Software Engineer Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Bala Cynwyd, PA) in March 2015.
Initial 30 minute discussion with HR going over current project and reasons for wanting to make a move, etc. Followed by a coding exam on codility.com. After passing coding exam was a technical phone screen with a developer. Asked impractical technical questions such as implementing a garbage collector - over the phone.
- How would you implement a garbage collector? 1 Answer

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Bala Cynwyd, PA) in September 2014.
I was contacted by a recruiter in early September, after applying through my college job fair. We had a nice, pleasant interaction over email. She scheduled a phone interview with a general technical interviewer who asked about my prior experiences, why I do computer science, and how to implement a hash table in the most general sense. All went well and I was called again to discuss tech in more detail. I was asked to implement binary searching and a shuffle-sort algorithm, but most of the focus was again (pleasantly) on me and the person behind the code, not the code itself. After that, I had an onsite interview where they wined and dined all day, giving me an all-encompassing view over what they do and how they do it. Tours, meals, and five hours of interviews gave me a pretty good idea about what they wanted and how they wanted it. I think my lack of financial experience didn't matter, despite the financial nature of SIG. It was a good process with lots of check ins and conversations.
- It was a cool data parsing problem where you took a text file data set and converted it to a usable data structure that was able to answer questions about ranges of data. It also required me to work with huge text files, with entries up to 1 million lines long. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Bala Cynwyd, PA) in October 2010.
My first round of interview was over the phone, I got call right on time and interviewer was very professional and polite and he knew what exactly he was looking for. He asked a lot of questions about my current role and my roles a responsibilities. I think he did not care abut the kind of technologies I have worked on but his questions were focused on how good of programmer I am in general.
After phone interview I got called for face to face round very next day.
For face to face round I was there for 4-5 hours and they gave me free lunch as well. The whole interview consisted of me sitting in a interview room and different people coming in from various teams and asking questions. In the end there was an IQ test which I guess went well because they very next day I got an offer. All in all it was a very pleasant experience.
- How good are you on evaluating yourself? Answer Question

The process took 2 days – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2010.
Applied online and contacted by HR for phone screening. She asked me some questions on my resume, probability and my interest in the POKER (Yes they really want you to understand POKER). Then got the first telephonic technical screening. Questions were based on C, JAVA and Relational Database. the guy on the phone was really co-operative. I got stucked at couple of occasions while writing algorithm but he was eager to track my thinking processes when i was writing the algorithm.

I applied online – interviewed at Susquehanna International Group, LLP.
Phone Interview #1:
With recruiter, she might throw in a curve ball math questions though it was mostly behavioral.
Phone Interview #2:
Write SQL Code: Simple Multiple Select from a database. using AVG() for one of the selections.
The SQL is slow, how do you optimize it?
Time when you did something unique that differentiated you from other CS ppl.
Other algorithm/math based questions i cannot remember.
- Just know your basic probability and statistics (Bayes Rule, etc). Brush up on algorithms and data structures. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Declined final office visit because I already verbally accepted at another firm a few days prior. Although this would have been a great opportunity, I found it hard to see a structured career path in the company when I get older in the future.
Great company though. One of the only ones I've come across with entry level work on trading systems which is awesome.
