I interviewed at Two Sigma

Interview

Three consecutive interviews, all difficult coding questions. Some involve matching orders of trades. Interviewers were courteous, but the coding questions seem too extensive for the amount of time given. Still waiting for feedback.

Interview Questions
  • Advanced coding algorithms, e.g. boardgame where winner has n consecutive moves.

I interviewed at Two Sigma

Interview

Coding challenge and then two rounds of coding while talking to another engineer. They asked quite a bit on recursion. It's kinda hard to implement on the spot, but the senior engineer was pretty helpful

Interview

One phone call interview. They didn't even give me a test although my former colleague told me he had one. If you have a previous relevant background, you will be likely to pass.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Two Sigma

Interview

Spoke briefly to the internal recruiter in the US, who gave a quick overview of the firm and why I applied (15min call), before a proper telephone interview with the hiring manager which lasted about 30 mins.

Interview

Rigorous. Learnt a ton from the process and interviewer made me feel comfortable. Felt more like a conversation at Starbucks than an interview. We went over some financial concepts to test my knowledge and he asked me a couple of scenario questions. A tip would be to engage the interviewer in solving the scenario questions, they love it when you ask them questions.

Interview Questions
  • Suppose the market closed at 1.5% yesterday. Is that a big change or a small change in your opinion?

Interview

First, start with an HR call, provide enough context but without the next round of the interviewer's name or background. Second round is a case-study interview, asking two case study questions, mostly product design-related questions. Get rejection after follow up with HR one week later, without providing any feedback. I think it would be great to provide more transparency and helping the candidate to improve.

I applied online. I interviewed at Two Sigma in Apr 2021

Interview

Applied online, then got a phone interview with HR, followed by another call with the hiring manager. Got a call a week later to say that they were not going to progress my application. Wasted my time on two levels-1). They informed me that I did not have the right experience, so why did you interview me in the first place? Twice. And 2). They told me that they were in no rush to hire and there was no real deadline, so why bother advertising in the first place?

Overall it was a pretty standard interview. Typical consulting style questions and asking about experience. Had us submit a case as well. Nothing unusual during the interview process and overall a good process even though it didn't work out.
