        Round 2

        Technical Interview

        Interview Questions
          Interview Experience
          Had 3 rounds of technical interviews with Product Owner, Product Manager and VP Product. Most of the questions were related to maths, statistics and a few on machine learning. Even though I did not have much background on these, I was asked to give my inputs and try to find a solution. We discussed recommendation engines for Quora, Linkedin and e-commerce websites. Then they asked me how can we remove the bias that comes in the practo ratings of the doctors due to feedback from various channels. How can we identify if the customer is booking an appointment by looking at reviews or ratings? How can we identify spam reviews before publishing them? How can we build a product which can help users write a better quality review? Most of the questions were related to data science and how we can improve the products using data. The data analyst role for which I was being interviewed, was a first of its kind role in Practo. The JD was to basically work with the product team and help them in improving products, building new features etc. using data science/ data analytics.
