    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GMO (Boston, MA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview, the guy seemed very smart and wanted to know oop concepts and some algo.
    In person the first time to meet the team , Interviewed by 5 people : C# high concept, the read and write code, math exercise and brain teaser and math. All cleared. second round was to meet upper management, and boy does it seem like a person's IQ goes down as they go up in rank in a financial company. Retrospectively , i should have left right when i was asked "prove to me that you can deliver" ... I wanted to say " i can't prove it, a proof is irrefutable! I can talk to you about how I rocked my previous projects until the cows come home, but that's not a proof. Give me a test project and time line and I will deliver it on time, and even that's not a complete proof. It's like saying prove to me that you're a good manager" .. but I didn't say that. Anyway they wanted contract, and I was looking for full time, so it didn't work out for them.
