    Application

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