    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Numeric Investors LLC (Boston, MA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    There is a lot of information about Numeric's business online. They do quantitative equity investing for institutional clients. Like many quant shops, they had a couple of tough years and they told me they are now cautiously expanding again. I found this position through a recruiter and I had two phone rounds followed by a day-long fly out to Boston. The interviews were standard quantitative finance interviews with standard quant questions. The interviewers were professional and smart but during the on-site, I got the impression that people were not having fun at work. Maybe I caught them on a bad day but everyone seemed stressed out and based on casual conversation, it appeared that the office might suffer from too much politics. But that tends to be the case when the business is stressed. Overall, they seemed qualified and they have a good reputation so it would not be a bad place to learn the business but the work-life balance might not be the best if that's important to you.

    Interview Questions

    • Suppose there is a series of 100 light bulbs labeled 1 through 100 that all start in the off position. Person 1 walks in the room and turns on every light bulb. Person 2 walks in the room and flips the switch on every 2nd light bulb (i.e. he turns off all even numbered light bulbs). Person 3 walks in the room and flips the switch on every 3rd light bulb (turning some on and some off). This process continues until person 100 goes through and flips the switch on the 100th light bulb. Which light bulbs will be lit up at the end?   1 Answer
