    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Optiver (Chicago, IL) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I initially did a mental math challenge. Afterwards, I was given a technical phone screening then an on-site interview, which consisted of three rounds of technical interviews. Very good process overall - recruiting and others were very responsive.
