Intuit Staff Software Engineer Interview Question

I interviewed in Mountain View, CA and was asked:
"The most challenging (and interesting) question was about a strategy for finding signal in a noisy and poorly understood data set. Asking a software engineer a data science question really stretches the mental muscles."

Challenging yes. But not necessarily in a good way. Most software engineers do NOT have the training to properly address this question. It requires a background in "data science" or signal processing. Unless the position interviewed for required these skills/background also, I would say the question was highly inappropriate.
