Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Point72 (Singapore)

Interview

Quick and efficient, but the questions asked were rather pointless and served no purposes at all. First round was a quick screening question via email (!) and second round was a phone interview. Interviewer was terse, impatient, and could barely speak English and would be someone I would wish to never work with.

Interview Questions
  • Rate your programming proficiency on a scale of 1 - 10
  • Given all the historical data of ALL the stocks in the market, how would you explain their price/return movement?
