    Simple one word 'Java', the company is very focused on building on top of their java application and software, almost everything they do is in Java. First is a 45 minute phone interview for Java concepts, and then superday at the company, where they ask about past experience and some Java concepts

    I applied online. They sent a confirmation and scheduled a phone interview. The phone interview was a brief conversation and asked about something on my resume. Next was the onsite interview and it was more of a discussion of me and my school rather than my skills for the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MarketAxess (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Online application, phone screen, then super day in Manhattan with 5 back to back interviews with different senior managers. Very laid back, only one interviewer really asked "interview" questions, the rest just were more conversational. Make sure you have questions about the firm and what they are working on, because the interview was more driven by what I wanted to know about the company. Told afterwards it would be 2 weeks till a decision was made, so still waiting to hear

    Interview

    First had a phone screen and the had me come down to their offices in Manhattan. Interview was pretty straightforward. Met with some of their developers. First developer I met with gave me some coding exercises involving tree traversals. Rest of the developers I met with asked me basic java questions (ie. checked exceptions vs. unchecked). I felt the interview was fair and not too difficult. At the end I met with a more HR type person.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MarketAxess (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The process was straightforward and I met with increasingly senior people as the interview went on. However, there was one less senior person that came in to do a little test. I had to learn something from the less senior person and then teach it to the more senior person. The interview was a bit scattered and I did have to wait between people, but otherwise, the process went well. From what I could gather, it seems there's a big split between Sales and BA/Dev culture, so I'm guessing management favors the Sales side - that's how it always goes.

    It's a growing company, which is why I am after a job there, and I'm sure there's enough to go around; not just cash, but opportunities too.
