    Investment Software Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hanoi (Vietnam)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hanoi (Vietnam)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at WorldQuant in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    My interview prosess included 4 steps:

    - Online test (45 questions, 2 hours)
    - Personal Interview with direct manager (local)
    - Personal Interview with Head of Quantitative Research team
    - Personal Interview with Head of Software Research team

    Interview Questions
    • You must pass the online test before moving on to the next step. It is not extremely difficult, but you have to possess good knowledge of probabablity, statistics, & quantitative. You have 1 to 15 minutes to answer a question depending on the difficulty, thus you must be able to solve the probably immediately, no time to research online. Given the time constraint, the difficult part is that you MUST use math on a regular basis & remember which formulas to use. That was my problem, haven't used these tools for quite some time. I was pretty good at Math (top 1% for SAT & GRE), but I didn't pass the online test :-(

      The interview could have been more well-rounded by giving the candidates more chance to present their capabilities beyond the online test result.
