    Développeur Logiciel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    On m'a demandé d'écrire un programme implémentant la solution d'un problème mathématique via HackerRank. J'ai eu une semaine pour le résoudre.

    Après quoi, j'ai eu un entretien téléphonique de 45 minutes pour discuter de la solution que j'avais implémentée.

    Puis, un entretien vidéo d'un peu moins de 2h avec quelques programmes à implémenter ou corriger, là-aussi avec HackerRank.

    Après quoi j'ai invité dans les locaux de Bloomberg à Londres. J'ai passé un premier entretien technique sur un PC (un terminal Bloomberg) avec là-aussi des algorithmes assez simples à implémenter.

    J'ai eu ensuite un deuxième entretien où j'ai parler des expériences qui m'avaient semblé intéressantes sur mon CV (il fallait montrer que j'avais apporté quelque chose à mon équipe). J'ai eu aussi droit à une question d'architecture distribuée. Ça a été terminé à ce stade pour moi.

    Je pense que je n'avais pas d'expérience assez valorisante à raconter, et j'ai trop hésité sur la question d'architecture.

    Une bonne expérience pour moi. Mes interlocuteurs étaient tous très agréables et les questions intéressantes (surtout le problème à résoudre en une semaine).

    Interview Questions

    • En général des questions d'algorithmiques pas trop complexes, mais il faut coder la solution en temps limité devant quelqu'un qui regarde et commente. Il faut aussi expliquer son raisonnement en même temps.

      Le "devoir à la maison" à faire en une semaine était un problème d'algorithmique plus complexe, avec un vrai programme à écrire. Il me semble qu'ils ont maintenant abandonné ce type d'épreuve (dommage).   Answer Question
