    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at DRW Trading.

    Interview

    Received an invitation for a superday at their offices in NY. Consisted of three relatively simple interviews, two of which focused mainly on mathematics and one which consisted of fit questions. Since the position was for a trading internship the mathematics mainly consisted of probability and Markov processes, nothing too esoteric. They also led us around the trading floor and we were able to speak with traders in different groups to understand how each one traded and what their markets were like.

    Interview Questions

    • (i) How much should one pay to play a game where a fair, six-sided die, which is numbered one through six, is rolled and the player is paid, in dollars, the value that is face up after the roll? (Ii) How much should one pay to play the same game as above, but now the player has the option to roll the die again, for a total of two rolls? (For the sake of specificity, the player can roll the die once. If she is happy with the roll, she is paid out the face value of the roll. If she is unhappy with it, she rolls again and is paid out the face value of that roll). (iii) How much should one pay to play the game in (ii) with an additional roll, for a total of three rolls? (iv) How much should one pay to play the game with an infinite number of additional rolls>   1 Answer
