    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Calypso Technology (San Francisco, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of 2 stages: Phone interview followed by onsite interview. Phone interview lasted for 45-60 mins and focused on questions about my prior experience and some basic tech questions (collections, list, set, transient). My onsite interview was taken by different members of the team where the position was based. The questions focused on design patterns and specific solution to the problems given.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Calypso Technology.

    Interview

    submitted resume online- got a call from the office manager. Met with the hiring manager and a few team mates. met with Sr manager a week later. Offer came within a week after that. There were no structured interview questions. Everyone I met was nice but no one knew to ask any questions that were relevant for the job. The company provides no training in that area. It seems to me they are more interested in ensuring they can put you on a client engagement without worrying about having you kicked off.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Calypso Technology in June 2014.

    Interview

    Very intensive and extensive. Its a whole long day if you pass the test and presentation. The test is not basic at all, there are 3 sessions - True/False, Multiple choice, and Essay. Study the front-middle-back duties etc, and know all the products they trade. True and False is tricky, learn your financial security concepts, and the essay question is easy just basic finance questions. After lunch, its 4 back to back interviews. They will ask you about your work experience so make sure you know what you did and articulate yourself. COME PREPARED!
