    Application

    The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Interactive Data.

    Interview

    Overall the hiring and interview process was quite smooth.

    I had to go back and forth for some HR related questions, but eventually got everything answered.

    The interview itself was quite informal and no high pressure.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me which distro I would prefer for a Linux build and why would I prefer that. I was also state any assumptions I made.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate the final salary amount.

    I would advise people in general to ask more, so if needed you can come " down".
