Process Overview

The purpose of the interview is to gain a better understanding of candidates’ current skill set as well as their ability to think, learn, and communicate. Our interview process is very selective. Only a small percentage of people who apply are selected for an interview.

For campus hires into trading and technology roles, there will be an on-campus interview, phone interviews, and a day of onsite interviews at one of our offices. Questions increase in difficulty with each round.
