    Software Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screen followed by another phone screen then they brought me to the office.

    My biggest impression I got was that they didn't know what they wanted and they were unprofessional.

    They brought us into a dim top level office where we had to code on very slow computers. We had 45 minutes. Nothing was setup and I spent 20 minutes fiddling with the IDE.

    After that were 3 rounds of "interviews" each with two people. The first was super unprofessional and kept eating his nails in front of me. The rest were just "explain this on your resume". It was stupid, and then maybe one guy would ask some trivia about the language you did. It wasn't structured.

    Watch out for the telltale signs that you'll be overworked.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Initially was contacted by HR, then 1 hour of technical screening round followed by on-site programming and technical rounds.

    From my conversation with team managers i noticed that the company focus is on just getting the work done, designing a class is looked down upon! they don't follow best practices in software. The technology stack is very outdated. No scope for growth as a computer science graduate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    2 rounds of phone screens followed by an on-site in Philly

    Phone screens were 3 questions a piece, on-site there was a group problem solving session and time spent with traders. Everyone is super friendly and the questions are rather easy so don't be too worried. They also will help you and I stumbled a little but still moved on as long as you get the concepts of the questions and the way to solve it, your actual algebra isn't the most important thing

    Interview Questions

    • Fit questions, resume questions, bayes (a lot of bayes), probability questions, recurrence relations questions etc. Was asked not to say but mostly everything was similar to stuff already on Glassdoor   Answer Question
