    I worked at Trayport full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart and interesting people back when Eddie was still the owner. Beer after work almost every day - good team spirit and a great culture. Annual company trip to some place in Europe was nice. Office environment was top-notch, with open desk for even management. Pantry always had lots of food for the staff to freely consume. A few of my old colleagues become team leads, so there must still be some good people around!

    Cons

    Pay was not too good; as technical consultant work sometimes gets boring and repetitive; client director back then was snobbish and a little arrogant.

    Advice to Management

    I heard the company is not as good as before now. in my memory, Elliot was not a bad director - wonder what happened after Trayport got purchased by GFI.

    Infrastructure Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Trayport (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    1st telephone interview
    2nd face to face interview - Non stop tech questions for approx 2hrs.
    3rd to give a presentation on a design scenario (something they had done previously) - approx 2.5hrs but spent several days on detailed presentation.

    IT seems like they did not know what kind of infrastructure engineer they wanted. They were looking for in-depth jack of all trade with focus on networking (including mpls, bgp, network design etc) but paying £55k.

    They also understood from initial telephone call, i lacked in certain areas and yet they used this as the reason why i did not succeed into getting the role.

    Waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions on networking (how does certain tools work i.e. ping, tcp handshake etc)   Answer Question
    • Questions on storage - RAID questions (really? who configures RAID with next-gen storage architecture?), snapshotting technologies   Answer Question
