    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at First Derivatives in February-2018.

    Interview

    Interview was based on how well I knew FD (no testing questions, more of the interviewer prompting me to discuss what I have read online). There were also questions about my resume (why I chose my major, elaboration on some of my previous positions). Very general, non-technical interview. Still waiting to hear back on my results (the next step will be a video interview). I was told that the response back should take approx 3 weeks.
