    Passed the online assessment, phone interviews. But while scheduling on-site (super day), the recruiter just STOP reply to any of my emails. I don't know what's going on and this is VERY unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Two Sigma (New York, NY) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Coding challenge followed by onsite (some people have to pass a phone screen after the challenge). Onsite was 2 technical interviews in the morning followed by 3 behavioral interviews in the afternoon . The behavioral interviews can turn into technical discussions about abstract problems. Some of the other interviewees did a bit of coding during the behavioral interviews as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Prepare to dive deep into technical decisions you've made on past projects. Also be prepared to think through abstract design problems. I ended up making a bijection to an NP-Complete problem for a prompt during my behavioral interview.   Answer Question
