    It was a video conference with one person. They asked me about my research (I am a PhD student), why I want to go into finance, then asked some math/statistics questions, then asked a programming question.

      - There is a group of n people, and you are given a function know(i,j) that outputs True if person i knows person j. Note that this is not necessarily symmetric, i.e. person i may know person j, but person j may not know person i. A celebrity is a person that everyone knows, but who knows no one else. Write a function that outputs a list of all the celebrities.   Répondre à cette question

    Entretien

    The first part was a 90minutes written test. Very convenient recruiting team that proposed me to do it directly from New York. The second stage was a 60minutes skype interview with a quant and an intern. They were friendly and structured the interview. At the end I received a full feedback. Was not quick enough on the mathematical questions but overall good experience.

    BEWARE OF HORRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICES.

    Company will offer to reimburse your several thousand dollar flights, and then ghost you after they reject you.

    REQUIRE THEM TO PAY FOR THE FLIGHTS THEMSELVES OR UPFRONT GIVE YOU THE MONEY.

    Also, do yourself a favor and read the Bloomberg article.

    Hi.
    First and foremost we apologise for the delay to your expenses being paid. However, it has come to our attention that the bank details that you provided were incorrect - which you have confirmed was your error. This would undoubtedly have had an impact on the time it took to get your expenses paid.
    I must stress that "ghosting" candidates and avoiding paying expenses is not in any way in our interests and is not our standard practice - we regularly fly people from all over the world and the vast majority are given feedback and have expenses paid in a timely manner.
    We did offer via the agency to pay upfront, as it was such a large amount of money - however this offer may not have been passed on.
    All feedback we receive is taken on board, and we regularly review our interview processes based on this. If you would still like to discuss this, please feel free to email: hiring@gresearch.co.uk and we can arrange a conversation

    Entretien

    Phone interview covering general programming knowledge and a hackerrank coding challenge.

    Half day of on-sites with 3 interviews:
    - Systems Design
    - Programming Exercise
    - Algorithms & Data Structures

    Was not invited back for second round of on-sites, but overall very enjoyable interview process. Very pleasant and intelligent interviewers and a great recruiter who was very forthcoming with information about the company and guidance about the interview process. Thanks Max! Received very detailed interview feedback on where I did and didn't perform well.

    Overall great experience. A company that treats candidates with respect.

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à G-Research (Remote, OR (États-Unis)) en septembre 2018.

    Entretien

    I applied through a referral, passed the initial HR screening (phone call), then took a 90 minute written test, I barely passed the test but flunked the "triage interview". This interview was mainly about the parts of the test where I did not perform well, it was pretty technical (as in write calculations with pen and paper technical). The interviewer felt that I needed too much handholding to solve the problems.

    Entretien

    There is a ~ 1 hr exam they set up for you. It is very similar to the past exams on their website. I did reasonably well on this, and was given a phone interview. The phone interview asked a number of more open-ended but superficial questions about optimization / machine learning. At the end were two quite difficult quantitative questions. One was about probability, the other about algorithms. I did not do well enough on these questions to advance further in the process.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à G-Research.

    Entretien

    The first stage was to take a 90-minute exam. The first part was pretty straightforward. The second part gave a few harder problems and you had to pick one to solve--if you can spot the trick they're not bad.

    Round two was a video interview. This was more of a behavioral interview. The interviewer went over my education and experience. Some technical questions were woven in. For example, he'd go into my programming experience then ask a question about object-oriented programming. This was scheduled for an hour, but we only talked for half that time. The next day I got a rejection e-mail that had a cryptic comment about them not being convinced about my motivations.

    While I will praise their efficiency--it is truly marvelous how quickly they got back to me and moved through the process--I found the commentary on my motivations rather rude.

    You will be reminded that you would have signed an NDA prohibiting you from sharing any confidential information, including details of test questions. We have the right to action the NDA, therefore would ask that you remove the interview question as soon as possible.

    Entretien

    I applied through a recruiter. The first step is a 90-minute written test covering probability, statistics, basic finance, etc. I took this at a remote location. The exam is then scanned and transmitted to G-Research. If one passes the test, you move on to a phone interview and then potentially an in-person interview. I did not advance beyond the first step. It is certainly worthwhile to refresh one's knowledge, especially if years have passed since undergrad and you have not taken a test since then or early in grad school. If you don't, the test will probably be quite difficult.

    HORRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICE
    Their HR reached out to me online and wanted to set up a phone call. I wasn't that interested, since I'm happy with my current job and my current employer is better than g research in many aspects. But I'm open to an introductory call to find out more. During this first round, they introduced the company and I introduced myself. Everything went normal, no red flag. Then HR just hung up in the middle of the chat (at about half an hour). And they never went back to give any explanation. That's extremely rude. Just why???
