    Software Developer Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nasdaq (New York, NY (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    - Initial brief phone call with recruiter. Typical conversation about background.
    - 45 minute conversation with manager going over technical background. Pleasant conversation about goals/future expectations. Seemed liked a really nice guy. Sent a take home assignment for me to do in a short amount of time. Requirements were open ended but somewhat confusing, so I had to clarify with follow up email.
    - Several days later I had a 30 minute phone call with a senior/lead architect who was really nice. Went over background and asked some technical questions around technology and API design. Nothing complicated at all.
    - Final interview was supposed to be with 5 people. For me it was only two, with the third being sick. First part was with the manager from the phone who just asked a white board design question about building and scaling out an app, and then a brain teaser. No chit chat like on the phone, just straight to technical. Second part was with a developer who went over Java technical questions about threads, Spring framework, hashmaps, OOP, etc. Third guy was out sick but manager said he would contact me about scheduling a video chat later in the week. I reached out to manager the next day but never heard back. Got an automated email a couple days later from Nasdaq saying they went with someone else.

    Besides the take home project, the interview process was pretty straight forward. The people I spoke or met with all seemed to be really nice people to work with. All the technologies and projects discussed seemed really interesting. Not sure what happened at the end of the interview process. Would have been better if manager just said recruiter would reach out to me instead of leading me to believe there would be another interview. Either way I enjoyed the interview and thought it was a great opportunity.

    Interview Questions

    • How does a hash table work? Why override equals and hashcode?
      Some simple stuff involving Java threading
      General spring framework questions. Nothing crazy.
      You have an application on a single sever. What technologies would you use? How would you scale the database? How would you scale the servers if more requests come in? How would you secure the app? Caching? Etc   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nasdaq (Boston, MA (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    It was very smooth and as expected. I was expected to send in a resume along with the rest of my application. I interviewed with 2 people. The interviewers were very friendly and jovial. I then heard back the same day with my offer, and I expected.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nasdaq (New York, NY (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Round 1: Phone screening round with HR went smooth and was told that I would be contacted in 2 weeks. It's been over a month and there is no update yet which clearly shows lack of professionalism.

    Great! It was a great experience and my interviewers were very nice. The interview was a softball interview because I guess they had liked my resume. They also described the project I would be working on to me in detail

    Interview

    Applied for a Summer internship. Phone interview with an HR manager a few months ago. Some basic questions like "Why do you want to work at NASDAQ? What experience have you had? Walk me through your resume." No contact since then, it has been 3 months. Nobody has reached out. I am hoping that they do!

    Key Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nasdaq (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    An external recruiter reached out for an initial touch then an internal Nasdaq recruiter reached out to setup a phone screen with the hiring manager. After I spoke with the hiring manager, he invited me to come in to speak with him and another VP. Everyone I interacted with was very friendly and professional from the recruiters to both hiring managers. The on site interview was scheduled for 3 hours and I was there for less, so I knew I most likely wouldn't be offered the job. The role/company seems more reserved (I have a tech startup background) but had wanted to make a transition.
