    Trainee Trader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Tibra in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Online "quantitative" and "logic" test. They are easy and pointless, around 30min each. The quantitative test involves reading tables and charts. It's more of a see if you can read and punch numbers into a calculator fast enough test. The logic test was a bit more interesting, but still pointless. Then the give you a week to do a small programming assignment. Again pointless. Then pointless a 15 min phone interview. The guy I interviewed with said I'll get an auto pass for "superday" and asked me brief questions about my resume. No desire to get to know me and he sounded depressed.

    Superday is a scam. They will not provide for your traveling expenses. Tibra is basically a failed company, who try to pick up employees that other trading companies pass-over, and exploit them. That's why every preceding "rounds" with tests are all pointless. They try to get as many people to go to their superday as possible on their own dime, only to pick 1 at the end. Even during the various stages of superday, you'll be kicked out if you fail that stage. Thankfully, there was a snow storm this year and I told them my flight was canceled. They gave me a 30 min phone interview as a way to make-up for the superday. I guess they feel bad that I missed the flight I supposedly paid for. Just kidding, they didn't feel bad at all. The guy asked a bunch of retarded questions and couldn't wait to get off the phone after 25 min.

    I have saved all the answers to their online tests and programming test. Hit me up if you want the answers (3ntericfever at gmail). I have warned you. It's just big waste of time. Only reason you would apply is if you're in Chicago already and really desperate.

    Quant Trader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Tibra.

    Interview Details

    Found the opening on line. The On-line application is followed by on-site 30minutes numerical test and 60 minutes logical test. If passed, additional programming tests are required, then technical interviews and finally HR. Very informal and secretive environment.

    Interview Questions
    • The entire test is extremely difficult and quite unreasonable. 40 speed maths questions in 30minutes without calculator. Requires extensive training before a serious attempt although no particular advanced quantitative ability. Logical test is extremely difficult as well with lots of brainteasers, matchsticks, ordering, etc... pass mark is not disclosed. Extremely long and complex hiring process, not very transparent. It made me wonder if I really want to work for such a firm.   Answer Question

    Trainee Quant Trader Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Tibra in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty straight forward. I emailed my CV and about a week later got an invitation to meet them at their London offices for an evaluation. They do not offer to pay travel expenses, so be prepared to pay for your ticket if you live outside the London area. The interview consisted in a series of questions solving simple math problems and logic puzzles. The challenge is that they are many and you have limited time. I would advise to check brain teasers and other tests for at least a week before the interview to get your mind ready for that.

    Interview Questions
    • Remembering tricks to get 2 or 3 digit multiplications done fast by hand is a must. It's really an easy test so long as you practice for some time to gain some speed.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Tibra in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first step is to do an online technical test they've setup. It's a bit like "Walking with Dinosaurs" - the questions have a lot of focus around Winforms 2005 features - which unless you've been stuck with ancient technologies - you wouldn't know. There is 1:1 technical interview, which is followed by HR/senior Management interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Something about Winforms CurrencyManager. (nowadays we have WPF/MVVM binding)   Answer Question

    Graduate (Trainee) Trader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney (Australia)
    Anonymous Employee in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Tibra in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an appliction via the Tibra website. If you are rejected at any stage of the process you cannot apply for this position at Tibra again in the future. The following stages then apply:

    1. Online Numerical Reasoning Test by SHL. This test consists of reading tables and graphs, interpreting the information, doing some calculations and answering multiple choice questions. Individual question difficulty ranges greatly, but on average seems to be harder than SHL numerical reasoning tests set by some other banks.

    2. Online Logical Reasoning Test by SHL. Each question in this test consists of looking at a sequence of 5 shapes, and from them extrapolating the next shape in the series.

    3. Written tests - Maths Test + Logical Test. Your scores from both tests are combined. Pass mark is about 40/69. No calculators allowed. You can do working out but it doesn't get marked, only the final answer is considered.

    Maths test: All questions are asked via a short story (1 - 3 sentences). Most questions involve calcuating profit from buying and selling shares, but some are very slightly different and others are completely different. The questions generally get easier to harder. You need to have an excellent mental arithmetic ability.

    Logic Test: A wide range of puzzle/brain teaser questions with a focus on lateral thinking and situational awareness. Questions include matchstick puzzles (rearrange matches to make a shape, etc.), and 'Zebra Puzzles'.

    4. HR Interview, 1 hour. Standard HR interview.

    5. Trader Interview, 1 hour. In depth questions designed to test exactly how much you know about trading and market making.

    Interview Questions
    • You buy 3250 Tibra shares for $2.50 each. You then buy a further 1250 when the price rises to $2.70 and finally sell for $2.65 each. What is your final profit or loss?   View Answers (2)
