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.

Example of Interview Question at Five Rings Capital LLC:

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


2. Winter trading competition Interview

Process Description

Two rounds of basic probability questions and mental math questions. Phone interviews. The first round was conducted by a HR person. The second round interviewer was a trading (I guess? )

Five Rings Capital LLC Sample Interview Question:

3 green marbles, 2 blue and 1 red in a box. Whats the probability of getting a red marble while there is at least one blue marble in the box ?


3. Trader Interview

Process Description

Intense, real intense, but friendly. They asked tough questions and truly tried to test you. Questions get harder and they want to see where you tap out-not as a bad thing. They also attempt to actively help during the tough questions so its was as if we were tackling the problem together (they obv. did not give away to much info). Hardest interview out of all the prop shops (including jane street, de shaw, etc.)

Five Rings Capital LLC Sample Interview Question:

You have 1000 wine jugs. One is poisoned. Since you are the king of Five Rings, you get to make servants test the jugs. They can test a jug, and if they drank the poisoned one will die overnight.


4. 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.

Example of Interview Question at Five Rings Capital LLC:

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?


5. Technology Analyst Intern Interview

Process Description

Applied online. Received an email asking to set up a phone interview. Asked a series of C questions revolving around pointers and C syntax. I believe the interviewer was reading a list of questions and checking my answers against a list of answers. Got through the first round, a second phone interview was set up. This time the interviewer asked data structures questions. I thought I did decently but I did not get the offer.

Example of Interview Question at Five Rings Capital LLC:

What is a Hash Tree? What are its benefits over a Hash Table?
