Interview

Online test, lots of questions in a short period of time, need to be quick. Then submit a piece of creative work, no interviews, as the internship was online, but would be 1/2 if in person

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Mako Trading Group

Interview

Not a great experience, first stage was with internal recruiter then second stage was with a technical engineer and another engineer who wasn't in attendance as he called in sick. Late to interview, didn't really know much about the role. I was told by the external recruiter as wasting both time of both stages of the interview that it had been filled by an internally!

Very friendly interviewers, explained the whole process in the first round. In all the rounds, they kept the atmosphere relaxed which allowed me to present myself in the best way possible. They were all very open to ideas and suggestions as well which felt great as the candidate.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mako Trading Group (Singapore) in Jul 2021

Interview

Approached by a recruiter for the role, interviewed with a HR guy from the UK. Arranged the technical interview and it ended up as a no-show. Had to email the recruiter about it and it turned out to be some scheduling conflict, supposed to get back to me when they reschedule. It’s been a month now still no word.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mako Trading Group (London, England) in Jul 2021

Interview

It started with a timed test on an online coding platform, consisting of two coding tests and some descriptive, C++-related, questions. Then there was another round of coding round with two of their engineers; and after that, a system design question related to their problem domain. The feedback until that point was that they were really impressed by my skills and performance during these interviews. The final round with the manager was where it all went south. I can only surmise he was on a fault-finding mission, determined to disprove and undo all prior feedback. It felt like a regular conversation at the time, but the feedback from that was both funny and sad at the same time. His discoveries were that I couldn't offer ideas to fix their CI system (a system which I've never seen) and I don't know some minute and obscure networking protocol detail (which they very well knew I don't work on). The last part reminded me of a scene from the movie Pink Panther, where Jacques Clouseau, with great difficultly, discovers that Detective Gilbert Ponton's distant ancestors were farmers! Their recruiter later apologized and told me that they're reviewing their interview process to be more detail-oriented early enough so as to prevent this last-minute U-turn from happening again. Overall, the team appeared to me solidly technical. It's a shame that the approach wasn't applied throughout.

Interview Questions
  • Arbitrary precision integer addition, system design around market data consumption.
