Ops Engineer Interview

Ops Engineer
London, England (UK)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Tradition Financial Services in February 2013.

Interview Details – Several emails were exchanged between my recruiter, Tradition HR and me before they called me for an interview. I had very strong Linux skills and came from a consultative background, but lacked experience with certain networking gear and financial services - which had been highlighted in those emails. Finally, I was asked to write my motivation for the job.
