    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at FINCAD.

    Interview

    Lots of rounds. First a phone screen, then HR interview, then talking to at least 5 different people, then you do a presentation, in the end you talk to the CEO. For quant positions, there is also a practical test where you do some modelling, mainly about curve building and simulation. Takes over 3 months on average.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard quant interview. Fixed income, basic finance, Monte Carlo etc.   Answer Question
