I interviewed at Man Group

Good. Interviewer made me feel comfortable as she was quite chatty. We had a common interest as well which was really good. In the end she asked if I had any questions for her and we ended up speaking for quite some time about that.

Interview Questions
  • Asked questions as to why I chose my degree subject, why I'm interested in the buy-side, and how I would deal with a difficult co-worker.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Man Group in Oct 2021

Interview

Initial stage interview was a take home exercise with two questions. The first was a Python or Java probability problem to solve (you could choose which language you implemented your solution in). The second was a SQL-like problem - given a table, how would you get A? Overall, the process was good, recruitment was prompt with replies, and the questions were good with flexibility on time given to complete the exercise. However, the downside was I felt that the interviewer wasn't very good. Their communication skills were lacking to fully articulate the questions they were asking, they came off aggressive and arrogant, and many of the questions weren't specifically related to the task at hand, and felt more like "gotcha" questions, especially for the experience level asked. There was one moment were it felt like the questions themselves were read from a sheet making references to issues which might exist in a Python solution, but wouldn't in Java. I'd apply again, as not all processes and interviewers are the same, but I think the initial talk could be better. Both in terms of questions, and how it's conducted. It was done via telephone, so the line was breaking, unclear and felt impersonal in contrast to other interviews I had done at the time over Zoom, Teams, etc.

Interview Questions
  • Q. Write a SQL query to get a list of items from two tables (one-to-many) given a set of constraints. Q. Write a function which returns an integer value from a provided probability space with pre-defined probability values.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Man Group

Interview

Initial call with recruiter describing the role and the process, and confirming that you're still interested in the role. Take home homework to create a small random number generator based on probabilities, and to write an SQL query selecting data from given tables. 30 minute call going over the homework with another software engineer. This call was mostly me talking over my solution, and the interviewer asking about edge cases and other questions about general concepts. 90 minute pair programming session where you are given requirements and have to create a small program from scratch. 60 minute technical interview with 2 other senior engineers. Surprisingly a lot of this interview was testing Linux knowledge, and regular expressions. Also very focused on advanced Java topics like garbage collection and memory management. Received a call from the recruiter going over feedback despite not being successful in the interview, which was appreciated. Overall the interview (especially the final 1 hour technical session) was a lot more difficult than anticipated, and it's clear they are looking to hire very experienced and/or expert level engineers who already have a very strong understanding of relevant technologies.

Interview Questions
  • Difference between float and double Java garbage collection Time complexity of BFS/DFS

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Man Group (London, England)

Interview

3 rounds of interviews. First two with senior researchers, the last one consisted of three interviews with two new and one senior researchers. Really enjoyed the interview process. Nice people, fair questions.

Interview Questions
  • Straightforward question, most of the are meaningful, though there were a few standard "textbook" question. I admitted that I was familiar with those question, which did NOT bring me any "trust points", i.e. I was assumed to just give detailed answers...
