    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR to have a 30 minute phone call. HR explained the entire interview process and what to expect which includes three rounds: HR Call, Technical Call, and On-site interview and tour. HR was very clear and open to questions. Entire process went extremely smooth and the entire staff was really kind.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    In-person interview on campus, qualitative phone screen (fit questions), technical phone screen (probability, options, finance questions), equity case studies, superday. Process was handled professionally and communication was solid. Unlike Jane Street, SIG spent some time evaluating fit on top of testing for skill.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    There were 3 total interviews. A phone interview that was behavioral questions and light technical questions taken by (from what I gathered) a junior employee. A second phone interview that was similar but the technical questions were slightly more in depth (what is the search time complexity of a Hash table?: O(1)). The third was an onsite interview which they paid travel expenses for. This interview was broken up into 1 coding test, and 2 interview sessions with development leads.

    Interview Questions

    • From the onsite interview in the second session with the Leads: How would you handle processing multiple millions of trade requests if the number of servers wasn't a question? The one manager kept on following up my answers with, "Well what if that wasn't available?"   1 Answer
    • Coding Question A group of friends are tracking the miles per gallon for each of their cars. Each time one of them fills up their gas tank, they record the following in a file:
      His or her name
      The type of car they drove
      How many miles driven since they last filled up
      How many gallons purchased at this fill up
      Date of the fill
      Their data is formatted as a comma separate value (csv) file with the following format for each row:(#person,carName,milesDriven,gallonsFilled,fillupDate)
      Miles are recorded as floating-point numbers and gallons as integers.
      Please create a program that allows members of this group to determine the miles per gallon (MPG) of each of their cars during a specific time range. Note: person may have more than one so a time range query might need to output data for one or more cars. A skeleton class will be provided; your job will be to complete the program.
      The principal function for querying MPG is of the form (the exact name, data types, etc., can be learned by inspecting the "solution" class in the skeleton code):
      GetRangeMPG(PersonName, StartDate, EndDate)
      Returns list of objects containing (CarName, MPG)
      MPG is calculated as (total miles traveled during time period)/ (total gallons filled during time period.
      The dates you receive in the query should be treated inclusively.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen with recruiter, and the second round phone interview was technical. There were three probability and linear algebra questions. The probability questions were classical and weren't very hard, but the linear algebra question was hard to me. Didn't pass the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Tredyffrin, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview a couple weeks after applying. Interview was completely behavioral event interview (BEI) questions, nothing technical. Interviewer was very dry and un-engaging. The company seems like a very nice place to work, but having unpleasant people on the frontline recruiting people is a serious flaw and might be reflective of poor management.

    There are two parts to the SIG interview. First, the phone interview, and if you get selected, you get to go for the onsite interview. The phone interview part was not so bad. They asked me questions about the company and some questions regarding my resume. I got the on-site interview scheduled for later this month.
