Software Developer Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at IMC Trading (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2015.

Interview

Talked about what I do and what classes I have taken before. Was pretty casual, the guy was a software developer (~5 years epxerience). We went into depth about everything on my resume before talking about the one question which he had. The question might seem easy, but to get it optimized requires a lot of thought and not rushing it.

    Interview

    We were given a number of different tasks from Algorithms to actual coding round during the interview. They really want you to relax and succeed. There are a lot of smart java devs at the company and there is a lot that can be learned at the firm.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IMC Trading.

    Interview

    Started off with an online assessment of 3 coding questions. I was then invited to move on to a online interview where I never heard back. The online interview was pretty strange. There was a question presented on the screen and you just had to record your answer. I thought it was pretty hard.

    Interview

    First they provides one round of logical reasoning test. After that, you will be asked to do a coding skill test on Codility. I feel the reasoning test is a little time compressing. While the coding test is not that bad.

    Applied online. Invited to take online coding test (three questions). First question is to tell if you can actually code (eg compute nth Fibonacci number). Subsequent questions were a bit harder but manageable, emphasizing minimizing space and time complexity.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at IMC Trading.

    Interview

    Awful interview process. Had an in-person interview with a software engineer. The interviewer was incredibly rude and condescending, spent most of his time talking about himself. Took a phone call in the middle of the interview. Interviewer said they would follow up with details about the process, and I never received a follow-up. Do not apply here.

    • Didn't get asked any. Engineer just talked about his work.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IMC Trading (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume, I was asked to do a fairly short coding assessment. Once I had completed it, I meant a lead developer and the HR representative I had been communicating with for an in-person interview. They were both very friendly but I didn't have the experience necessary for the position.

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IMC Trading (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Applied online and got through the interview screening. The second round was 2-hour codility test consisting of 3 questions. The questions are not typically hard, but you need to consider some special cases e.g boundary cases. And subsequently there was a verbal test (tests critical thinking but not yes/no/cannot say type )and psychometric test(find the pattern). Then the onsite interview was a 35min coding test. You were to implement some behaviours a character in a game. Not hard but nervous so didn't get right.
