    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Met Office (Exeter, England (UK)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Went to their HQ and had a half an hour interview with time for an interview requiring different statistical analysis methods. There was also a prepared exercise to present a brief for a meeting with a client. Were fairly welcoming, however equal knowledge of coding and business techniques were required.

    Interview Questions

    • Was presented with a simple piece of code, and had to recommended ways to improve it.   Answer Question
