The interview process has 3 steps: digital assessment, 1st round interview with cases and 2nd round interview with cases. I took the digital assessment game. No-one really knows how they measure your performance but in the internet they say that the algorithm defines it itself.

Interview

Three rounds and then two rounds. It was overall very pleasant. Seemed like the maths part was essential. I thought the cases were easier than the ones I used to train on. However, they seemed to really stress having a bigger perspective and being confident with calculations.
