    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (Atlanta, GA).

    A relatively tedious process in the means of how many face-to-face interviews are needed, but the overall timeline was quick. The interview process was laid-back and they really make you feel comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard interview questions were asked, accounting specific were asked but broad.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (Atlanta, GA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    They tend to ask questions that are not directly related the job description. The questions they asked were generally:
    Tell us about options
    What do you know about derivatives
    What's the in-the-money strike price for a straddle option strategy if the stock price is $X.
    Tell us about the option Greeks.

    Afterwards, I was given a very simple MS Excel test to do on my own. You can really Google all of the answers if you want to.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Interview was straightforward and to the point. The interviewer was polite and explained the expectations in detail. He was open about where the direction of the company is going and how the position fits in to the grand scheme of things. He was adamant in his effort to find the right person for the position and gave you the opportunity to express any concerns that you may have. The next step was in-person interview. You meet with the hiring manager and other team members. It was a very pleasant experience.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    One of the worst interview experiences in my entire career. A lot of behavioral interview questions which were I believe unrelated to the position description and my experience.

    On my previous jobs I interviewed a lot of people myself. But here I'm not even able to say where it's going to and what do they want to hear from candidates.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intercontinental Exchange (Atlanta, GA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Had to take a 90 mins written test. The test was more of trying to test "how good you know the syntax", rather than concepts. I believe I did very well in the test since I was preparing for pl/sql certification exam. But never heard any feed back from them. Which is very unprofessional.

    • They tend to ask questions that will lead you give wrong answer. Very poor communication from ICE employees. They try to trap you while formatting questions.   1 Answer
