    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at First Derivatives (Toronto, ON) in May-2018.

    Interview

    first round was a phone interview. Pretty standard, ran through the CV, couple questions about the company and its products and services. Interviewer was unclear about what the company wants for the position
    second round was a skype interview, where questions were a lot more technical, got to know the verticals of the kbd+ and how it is applied to the different sectors (challenges), etc.

    Interview Questions

    • talk about the Kx system and the kdb+ database, Big data and the 4V's, how kdb+ tackles the 4V's, possible issues with kdb+ in the different sectors the Kx system is used in.   Answer Question
