Preview to 5 Five Rings Capital LLC Interviews Below

1. trader Interview

Process Description

The interview took about 40 mins. Some behavioral questions followed by technical and brainteasers, as well as personality test. The questions were somewhat difficult, and the signal was not very good.

Five Rings Capital LLC Interview Question Example:

Estimate the population of U.S. under age 20. I estimated at around 20%, whereas the actual answer was somewhere around 25%.


2. Junior Trader Interview

Process Description

Somehow was contacted after only sending in a resume electronically without having a reference there of any kind (this happened extremely rarely). Had a phone interview with the HR person which was apparently recorded and for traders to listen to later. I was asked a lot of fit type questions. Very pointed questions about why I wanted to be a trader and if I had any idea what I would do on a daily basis. The second half were relatively straightforward brainteasers and mental math that were not particularly hard, that is they don't stand out in my mind compared to many of the other prop shops' questions. I very actively told them that I would be out in New York doing interviews anyway in two weeks (i.e. they would not have to fly me out there or anything) so if they wanted to continue they should let me know quick and book something in office then. They got back to me quick and the next week I had an interview with two traders on the phone. Bunch of fit questions and then finally one puzzle/brainteaser question that was relatively long which they gave like twenty-thirty minutes for. Did not want to hear my reasoning really- just wanted an answer within that time frame. Didn't get passed this round.

Five Rings Capital LLC Sample Interview Question:

Striking questions during the fit part: how much is the maximum number of hours you would be willing to work at Five Rings? What is the least desirable job you could do?


3. Trading intern Interview

Process Description

Interview comes fast after online application. The most difficult questions I have ever encountered. Mostly math questions. Interviewer is friendly, though a bit pushy.

Sample Interview Question at Five Rings Capital LLC:

Estimate the 20th Fibonacci number. Estimate the weight of Eiffel Tower. Estimate the number of countries with population less than 1MM.


4. Trading Intern Interview

Process Description

25 minute phone interview. Very little fit, mostly technical questions. Did not make it through to the next round.

Example of Interview Question at Five Rings Capital LLC:

Some fit questions-- why interested? What are you looking to get out of this experience? How many hours would you work per week? How many hours would you work if paid 50% more?


5. Quantitative Research Interview

Process Description

I had an initial phone interview with HR, which consist of some fit questions and some estimation questions. And then they sent me a link for an online math test. Then a phone interview with a researcher there.

Example of Interview Question at Five Rings Capital LLC:

The estimation questions can be hard, but I got lucky that some of them are relatively straightforward. The interview with the researchers required very strong statistics background.
