    Interview

    Emailed you saying that they wanted to interview. If you accept their interview request, they proceeds to make you do a 3 hour long online coding challenge in the busiest time of the semester. Seriously, this practice needs to stop. It's disrespectful at best.

    Quantitative Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Jump Trading (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I answered every question successfully and got along with everyone. However, throughout the whole process, I got the distinct impression they were just farming me for trading strategies from my existing company. There were multiple sessions where the interviewer did nothing but prod for confidential information.

    At the end they rejected with no explanation.

    Because they wasted my time, I'm posting all the questions they asked here. If you're in the industry, I strongly recommend avoiding this interview.
