    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microsoft (London, England).

    Interview

    The first stage was a programming homework, to be completed in one day in a language of choice.
    This was followed by an on site technical interviews which consisted of standard algorithmic problem solving questions, design, testing plus some machine learning / statistic.

    In conclusion, one to one chat with principal manager.
