    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at First Derivatives (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    The interview was broken down into 3 parts (although I went through only 2): phone, skype, and in person. The in person interview has a logic test to do. Everything was so great about job but beware, they have a non-negotiable salary of $32000 which is almost nothing. If you're not in it for the money then this is a great job

    Interview Questions

    • A logical test that uses flowchart, I'm guessing to mimic how they teach you to program   1 Answer
