    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Two Sigma (East Rutherford, NJ (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Overall a negative experience with this firm. Several things to point out here. Their people team consists of white 20 somethings. If you do not fall into this description then good luck! Second they keep you there forever and every interviewer asks you the same questions. Lastly, they consider themselves a techy fund but the “gift” they give you when you interview is a VR viewer for you mobile device which is sooo 2016.

    Applied online. Recruiter reached out followed by a call with the hiring manager. Then did hackerrank coding test with two questions, one about strings and one about disjoint sets. Afterwards I spoke to multiple people on the team which ended up being them telling me how bad the role was. E.g. there's a lot of grunt work are you ok with that? Very weird experience as I've never had interviewers try to convince me that the role is terrible. Anyways the recruiter arranged a time to call me, didn't call and ghosted me. Lol what a bizarre experience...

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über eine Vermittlungsagentur beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 6 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2015 bei Two Sigma (New York, NY (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Recruiter call, Hiring Manager Call, On-site full day of interviews. The whole process was very well coordinated, and very well communicated.

    I met onsite with relevant peers that I would be working with and discussed the state of the company, my past experiences, and some personality aspects. The people there are definitely smart, and some might describe them as "mature" in their way of thinking, but I'd call it "conservative" with regards to understanding the goods, bads, and things that can be changed, or the difference between relevant history and capabilities for the future.

    Although there is a yearning for a progressive attitude and mentality there, there is also a sense that there are less chances that will be taken, and bit by bit, it will drive them back towards the middle of the road, where opportunity to make non-linear advancements or jumps with experimentation will be stifled by the highlighting of mistakes that are expected to accompany.

    The company and people there will do fine, but I think over time they will become more institutionalized than trailblazers.

    the whole process took about 4 weeks. My feeling is not to apply this company any more. The interviewees themselves are not very clear about their questions. They also are very arrogant ad pushy.

    Ich habe mich persönlich beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Two Sigma (Houston, TX (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was contacted by external recruiter. Then one phone screen with a recruiter from the company. Then coding test for 2 hours. Then another guy who is a software engineer contacted with me asked bunch of technical questions that are collected from internet. Nothing very original, probably all questions he asked were among top 50 interview questions. He was a nice guy. Then they invite me to onsite in Houston.

    First interview was with a manager. General questions about my background. He asked some factual questions. Some of them were really stupid. I tried to answer all questions and I think my interpretations were good. I sometimes express that what he asks is not very meaningful because of xyz reason, he accepted etc.. Then he asked a coding question which was not hard. I solved it in less than 7-8 minutes I guess. You write code on a laptop. He look at the code and find a test case which fails the program. I suggest two ways to fix it and I fix it. Then he starts discussing which was is more efficient. I said express my idea. It was related with letters. I wrote the code in Java. He asked me, how can I efficiently convert uppercase letter to a lowercase letter. I answered using Java way of thinking. This guy was very interested in to the low level programming. He talks about a tricky way to do it. Actually before he mentioned, I gave an answer which was very similar to his answer. He did not like it for some reason. Then we talk about test cases. I gave two different answers. I tried to point out that I would test boundary conditions as well as regular conditions. I suggested an automated way to test the program that I wrote. He liked the idea. Then he tried to confuse me with an another idea which was actually identical. He said that details are very important for the company etc.. He even go into machine code level details of the implementation. It was a weird interview. I don't really like the guy. He was obsessed with stupid tricks. Even though, your answers are close to the tricks that he amazed with, he does not like to recognize that you know what he has in his mind. Weird guy, a type of guy which is impossible to make him happy.

    Then another guy came, he asked some questions about my background previous work etc.. He seems like he was very interested in to what I did before. I recently finished my PhD, I talk about what I did for my dissertation etc.. He asked me to write a binary tree. I wrote it. Then he wanted me to test it by printing it. I wrote a method which had a slight problem, but I solved (he also give an idea while solving it). I tested the tree. Everything was working etc..

    Two guys take me to lunch to a nice place. They told me that they won't give any feedback and I can ask any question that I want. I ask questions about the company and Houston. They seem like they were happy to work in Two Sigma and live in Houston. They tried to create an impression that very special people work in the company. They were nice guys.

    We returned to the company. The secretary came and said that they did not feel that I am a good match. Then I left from the company. It was a bit surprising because I wrote the code for two programming questions without any problem. Second interviewer behaved so nice. I answered most of first interviewers questions, I discussed a little bit and persist correctness of my answers. Maybe he did not like me because I was not submissive lol :) .

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • There was not very difficult questions, but there were meaningless questions. Some of them are created for interviews and some of them were reflection of weird obsessions of the first interviewer :). The most unexpected one was "what is Godel's incompleteness theorem?" from first interviewer. He was not normal :)   2 Antworten

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The interview process had four steps:
    (1) A brief phone interview with HR to see if background matched any openings
    (2) Online code challenge (2 hours to solve two coding questions)
    (3) A one-hour phone interview -- asked about my background then asked several CS 101 questions
    (4) An all-day onsite interview

    The onsite interview questions were relatively easy and straight-forward, no trick questions. The focus was on solving simple questions quickly and flawlessly.

    Response was really fast. It is relatively easy to pass the phone screening process and get on-site. But the onsite was very hard. Need to mention that HR was quite nice and the on-site arrangement is satisfactory.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • The technique challenge questions are not that difficult compared to other IT companies. But it requires clean, bug-free and timely coding. The on-site part could end up earlier than planned if you don't perform well.   1 Antwort

    You will be given a code assessment, and have to finish it in 2 hrs. But you can choose the time you want to start, and email the solution back in 2hrs. The question is not difficult. And then you will have a phone screen, and you will be asked some question about the projects on the resume, and some technical questions. I was asked several questions about OS. The final round will be onsite interview, but I didn't perform well in the phone screen, so I don't have that chance.

    Had a code test followed by a ph interview and a full day of tech interview. Code test questions same as mentioned before - sorting strings and numbers in place, data center sync problem. phone interview was ok, just a chat about the past project and simple questions. Onsite questions were tricky and covered data structures, algos, string matching, tries etc.

    The interview is very technical; studying the CLR algorithms book in advance is the best route to take before submitting your resume. There is typically a screening interview by HR just to find out if the candidate is a good fit attitude-wise, followed by a code test and then potentially two days of in-person interviews. HR will send a candidate home early in the day if the interviewers don't think the candidate is a good fit for the position.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • I don't remember a specific question, and even if I did; I don't necessarily think that posting it online is positive thing to do for the candidates or the company. As I mentioned above, studying the CLR book is the best route to success.   3 Antworten
