    I have been working at DRW full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A rare combination of trading/tech skill, diversification across trading styles, risk appetite, and market leading infrastructure. The company grew fast, and still needs to be optimized internally as a result, but it has all the ingredients to become the best prop shop in the world.

    Cons

    Discretionary bonus structure within certain trading groups can be a bit opaque for younger traders. There is a push to unify the company but at the moment some desks are siloed and/or compete internally with other desks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DRW in September 2017.

    Interview

    First received a coding test via Codility; very easy, just used to test your basic coding skills. Then, received a phone screening which I did not advance beyond. The questions were pulled from their database of questions they generally ask candidates, so they are fairly standard: data structures, classes in C++, interfaces, etc. I would encourage only mentioning concepts in your answers you can expound upon further. The questions were also not worded the best, so I would not panic if they sound off.
