What’s a technical interview really like? For many applicants, especially those newer to the workforce, the prospect of wrestling with complex technical problems in real time, and in front of another person, can be daunting.
Women at Two Sigma (W@TS), one of our employee resource groups, organized a series of mock interviews featuring Two Sigma employees playing the roles of both interviewer and candidate. The goal was to help demystify technical interviews for software engineering and quantitative research candidates—and especially to help empower young women in tech with limited exposure to the process.
As you’ll see in the videos below, these interviews focus not only on the solutions each candidate came up with, but also on how the candidates came up with them. Moreover, since successful applicants will be working in a highly collaborative environment on complex problems, being able to communicate one’s thought process is essential.
