Interview Process
Test Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
90 Minutes
No. of Questions
21 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: MCQs - Quant + Programming (questions in C)
  • Section 2: Write code as per question
Interview Experience
The MCQs - Quant part was easy. They had some good questions. It was quite interesting. Programming questions were mostly out of my domain,

The final code writing question was not that tough. We had half an hour to write the code, and I pretty much wrote it till the last minute and got the green tick.
Interview Tips
Go well prepared in C, C++. They asked obscure MCQ questions which most junta doesn't know. Read 'bitwise operators'.

In the last question, we were allowed to write code only in C++/ Java. So, be prepped for that too.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Basic String manipulation - Convert "I am a boy" to "I%20am%20a%20boy" with no temporary arrays.
Interview Experience
First off, he asked my interests and we kicked off the convo with philosophy, competitive programming, hacking. Then, he gave a string manipulation question and I solved it with decent efforts.

The interviewers were very friendly and helpful throughout.

Since I am from Electrical Engineering background, they didn't ask too tough questions involving DSA.
Interview Tips
They won't ask you any questions that are outside what you've learnt.
All they wanted to see was whether I was good at what I knew or not?

Don't lie and brag about any skills. Under sell and overwhelm.

Listen to the presentation keenly. Do some groundwork about the company - founders, latest developments, etc.
