    Interview

    In 2016, I applied for this position and was shortlisted for an interview after a telephone one. Thereupon, I was informed the recruitment process was postponed and would restart after Christmas. To my shock, I was told afterwards my application was rejected! Despite politely asking for some feedback, they kept me in the dark by stubbornly withholding this. They wasted my time and energy preparing for the interview, yet would never want to be treated that way, highlighting their double standards and the fact they are not worth working for. In case you don't know, they are notorious for their recent data breach, affecting THOUSANDS of innocent customers. Is this an employer you would seriously want to work for especially when there are better ones? Be sure never to seek employment with these unprofessional bunch as they are worth nothing.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wonga.com (London, England (UK)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    An initial phone screen, in which they ask about your motivation, interests and hobbies. If you clear that, then there is an online Kaggle test for the second round. You are given 4-6 hours to complete the test and revert back. If you get an acceptable score, there is another technical phone interview where you talk about what you have done in the Kaggle test and some other general Machine Learning questions.Finally, if you clear that , there is an onsite 5-stage interview with the lead developers and analysts in the company. It is technical and HR combined. They test your thought process, how would you approach a problem and solve it using Machine Learning algorithms and models. An insight into the company's decision models and what they do is very helpful to stay ahead for the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask a lot of questions related to credit scoring and how to test the customer's authenticity. You should think of the possible ways to test if a customer is fraud or not prior to attending the interview. Like which Machine learning model you would use, how and what could be a better model , what kind of customer data would you need etc.   Answer Question
