Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at G-Research (New York, NY (US)) in November 2018.

Interview

Phone interview covering general programming knowledge and a hackerrank coding challenge.

Half day of on-sites with 3 interviews:
- Systems Design
- Programming Exercise
- Algorithms & Data Structures

Was not invited back for second round of on-sites, but overall very enjoyable interview process. Very pleasant and intelligent interviewers and a great recruiter who was very forthcoming with information about the company and guidance about the interview process. Thanks Max! Received very detailed interview feedback on where I did and didn't perform well.

Overall great experience. A company that treats candidates with respect.

    Interview

    Shady company. They make you sign an NDA and take a picture with it.

    Easy interview - basically they want to see if you can memorise a bunch of stuff from courses like networking and operating systems.

    Declined moving forward with this company after reading the Bloomberg article about them.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G-Research (London, England) in December 2020.

    Interview

    I was supposed to have a call with someone from the company to talk about the role, but he did not call me at the appointed time. When I reached out to him, he sent me an email with some questions in it, instead.
    After that, I had a call with two chaps who asked me some technical questions, and who asked me to write some code and answer questions about it.

    After that, I was completely ghosted. I wrote to my point-of-contact one week after the interview, asking for an update on the status of my application and I was completely ignored. Not professional at all.

    Interview

    Direct application, followed by conversations via email & phone with recruitment team to establish direction. Then remote video interview, followed up by two on site rounds made up of 2 or 3 interviews each.

    At all stages the process was well organised and explained, everyone I met was friendly and professional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G-Research (London, England) in May 2019.

    Interview

    Be careful when applying, they have scamming hiring practice. Definitely not a trustworthy company.
    I applied from overseas. After I completed a home assignment they asked to come interview in their office in London. I was told I would be refunded the travel cost. Unfortunately after they announced my rejection I didn't hear back about refund of travel costs.
    I sent follow-up emails multiple times during months and each time I was told it would be processed but to this day nothing was done.
    I was extremely disappointed because they seem to have a good reputation.
    The onsite interview itself was ok. It consisted of 3 interview session with a couple of software engineer.

    Interview Questions

    • Home assignment was a tricky DP question
      Onsite interview questions was standard algo question+ system design   Answer Question
