Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Sydney (Australia)).

Interview

Four rounds over four weeks. Met with two members of the Portfolio Management team each time for an hour or two. I was tested on academic finance theory including the Fama-French five factor model. I was asked questions about my technical skills e.g. SQL, VBA and previous project work. They also asked me questions about 'fit' and work culture. Each round the interviewers worked hard to emphasize how operational the day to day work was and that their expectation was that I would help reduce operational inefficiencies.
