    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Two Sigma (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2019.

    Interview

    HR phone screen
    2 hour coding test online
    Manager phone interview
    On site meet the team , three tech round, didn’t got invited for the afternoon session.

    Overall easy questions, but they seems to have no tolerance for bugs, made a few bugs and corrected them after the interviewers pointed out, probably that’s why i failed.
