    Software Engineer Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Man Group (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview consisted in a programming assignment, with one question covering basic algorithms and the other covering some SQL. What matters the most is the quality of the code, which needs to be production-grade (including the tests).

    After the review of the homework, I was invited for a telephone interview where I was asked about the homework, and how can I improve what I've done (time / space complexity, number of lines of code etc). Then we discussed about some more programming concepts like algorithms and data structures, and several Python-specific questions.

    After two days, I was invited to their London Office for an in-person interview session.
    There, I had three more interviews. If you are from London, they usually do them separately.

    The first was a technical interview with two engineers, and I was asked more in-depth questions regarding complexity and data structures. I was also asked about the internals of the Python interpreter and some Linux commands. Even if I got a little stuck on some questions, the interviewers were not bothered and helped me arrive to the correct solution.

    Then, there was a programming interview, where I was given a problem and had to design and test a working solution. They were expecting the same production-grade code, along with comments, unit tests and everything. The interviewers were very helpful and they explained the task precisely, clarifying any question I had.

    The last interview was with the Manager that supervises the internship program, and we discussed about my interests in the company, why would I like to work there and we had a pleasant chat about technology. He's a very cool guy.

    Overall it was a very well organised process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Man Group (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 3 rounds with a brief pre-round discussion with HR on motivation and experience. The first round is an interview with a senior project manager where they will discuss the role and walk through your CV. The second round consisted of two parts, where the first part of the interview was with the Head of Financial Technology and the second part with the Junior Project Manager that you would be directly working with. The first part was case type interview on how you would prepare a yearly budget and prioritise across different projects. The second part was a competency type interview. The third and final round of the interview is with the CTO.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Man Group (London, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Arranged by a recruiter, I had three 1:1 interviews with Man AHL. The first one with the head of fixed income. Questions are about number estimations, solving simple equations, binary search algorithm etc; the second one was with a guy from asset management. 1/3 questions about cv and competency; 1/3 questions about the basics of financial markets (what is future, option, volatility); 1/3 brain teasers (estimate the length of equator); the last one was with a technical guy. He prepared to ask me questions on python and time series. As I know neither of them, the interview finished quite soon. I could answer the mathematical and competency questions but failed to impress in business/practical discussion as they told me I was doing my own calculation. No offer, but great lesson.
