Proprietary Trading Firm Interview Tips

I've seen a lot of posts and private messages asking about proprietary trading firm interviews. So I figured I'd just make it easier for everyone and post what I think are some basic things you'll need to know to be as prepared as you can be for these questions. Certainly, different firms have different interview methods and types of questions, but I'll try my best to be general in a way that'll hopefully be helpful no matter which top prop shop you have an interview with.

Mental Math

Mental math is pretty important on a lot of these interviews, whether it's direct mental math questions (What's 27 x 29?) or if you're required to use mental math as a part of a bigger question. I found that www.tradertest.org was the best way to practice all types of mental math. As an added bonus, the site also has a sequence test, which sometimes comes up in interviews as well.

On top of general mental math, here are a few mental math tricks/concepts worth knowing:

  • 27 x 29 = 27 x 30 – 27 = 810 – 27 = 783
  • 39 x 39 = 40 * 40 – 40 – 39 = 1600 – 79 = 1521
  • 19 x 21 = (20 – 1)(20 + 1) = 400 – 1 = 399
  • Summing a sequence of consecutive numbers
  • Estimating square roots
  • Calculating expected values (i.e. EV of a die is 3.5)
  • Probabilities of rolling sums of two dice (i.e. 2 = 1/36, 3 = 2/36, 4 = 3/36, etc.)
  • Squares up to 20
  • I could go on but I think you get the general idea by now

Types of Questions

In addition to direct mental math problems, there are many types of questions that could appear in proprietary trading firm interviews:

  • Dice/probability: A lot of firms use simple dice questions to test the waters in first round interviews, but it's possible to see these questions in later rounds too. They may also ask you to value a "game" played with dice.
  • Conditional probability: Memorize and understand Baye's Theorem.
  • Market making: They will ask you a question and ask you to quote a bid and offer on your answer. Often then they will hit or lift your market (because you're usually wrong) and you'll have to react to this new information to solve the problem.
  • Confidence/betting: Same as above except you might be asked to bet or state your confidence % for your solution.
  • Non-math brain teasers: These are rarer but some firms will still use them to see how you think. Just search online.

If you want examples of questions, just go on Glassdoor and look at the interview questions for companies such as Jane Street and SIG (since people tend to post more for those firms). The questions generally apply to other firms as well.

Problem Solving Process

In the end, the problem solving process is probably more important than the answer itself, because interviewers are curious about how you approach and solve hard problems, as well as how you articulate your thought process (since you'll have to explain your idea in a team setting at many prop shops). So remember:

  • Talk everything out
  • Don't be nervous if you don't know what's going on
  • Don't be overly sensitive/defensive if you're stumped on something
  • Stay humble
  • Ask Intelligent questions

Ok that's all I've got for now, but feel free to ask questions if you have any!

i feel like mental maths abilities are something you're either born with or you're not..

What gets me is that I've spoken to traders who have worked at prop firms and they say all of this is bullshit, its just a way to weed out people.

This is all good stuff, I'd give you an SB if I had one. Especially the middle three bullets in the last section, these are key. Staying humble is very important. They see tons of smart guys, they can afford to weed out the genius who seems like a douche.

Also, expect to be stumped. Many firms will just keep upping the difficulty level until you just can't answer, they want to find your level and see how you react when something you can't handle appears.

Usually not for entry-level interviews, but maybe a little bit. But definitely if you're looking to move laterally in the algorithmic trading industry.

This really depends on the firm. At some places, they're more or less interchangeable and at other firms their roles are very silo'd.

Will M, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Thank you. To build off of the third tip (1921 = 2020 - 1), you can apply this to any two numbers as long as they are the same distance from a multiple of 10.

Just subtract the square of the difference from the closest multiple. (1921 = 2020 - 1^1)

For example, 1822 is equal to 2020 - 2^2 17 * 23 = 2020 - 3^3 1624 = 20*20 -4^4 etc

Works best for two digit multiplication, but can be applied to 3 digit and more as well.

Hey I used to work for a prop trading firm (here in canuck-istan...commonly called Canada)

Basically prop interviews are always always always stamina interviews. They wanna see if you have some serious balls. They're going to try and work you up to the max. In my firm, they would mindfuck you during the interview by telling you that you were underqualified, didn't have what it takes, talked too much, etc. to see if you were swayed easily. Then they would ask to solve some insane brainteaser questions. Here's one:

There is a lilly in the pond. The lilly doubles every minute. At time 0 the pond is empty, after one hour, the pond is covered with lillies. At what time is the pond 76% covered with lillies.

The above question is not a math question, it's a prop trading mindfuck question...trust me. Prop trading is not for everyone, I've seen quite a few people break down/go bankrupt/become an addict because of the nature of the business.

I don't know if it is the way you phrased it or if it the nature of the question but there are a ton of things you have to ask before even attempting to answer that question:

You say there is a lilly in the pond but that at time 0 the pond is empty, do you mean empty except for that original lilly?

You say that the lilly doubles every minute, do the lilly offspring double as well or is it just the original lilly that does so?

Do the doubles all happen simultaneously on the minute?

When the pond is covered in lillies at the end of the hour, is there any overlap?

Proprietary Trading Interview - Technical questions? (Originally Posted: 11/08/2007)

I'm interviewing for Jane Street Capital tomorrow on campus and was wondering if anybody knew what goes into a prop trading interview. I don't have any finance background, so I'm not sure how much in the way of technical questions I'm going to be getting. I've heard prop trading firms ask a lot of brainteaser questions, but what proportion of fit/technical/market/brainteaser questions should I be expecting. It's a 30 min interview if that helps. Thanks!

i've had two interviews with jane st capital, though the first couple were both phone interviews, and this was for a summer analyst position (assistant trader)

expect the why trading questions, why jane st cap questions, but those are mostly bullshit questions beacuse they don't care much at all... then it comes down to mental math 49.75/2, 100000-11.5...etc to help get you a bit flustered. finally if you happen to advance, they will ask you some challenging expected value and statistic questions (you will need to integrate various distributions, though they walk you through it if you somewhat forget what they look like). i assume you have a very quantitative background or else you wouldnt have been selected in teh first place; good luck

hi,

i have an interview next week for an internship at a small prop trading firm based in chicago. i really dont know much about trading, ive been very focused on investment banking/equity research, and didnt even expect to get this interview. im going to read the vault guide over the weekend and brush up on my knowledge, but does anyone have any tips on what kind of questions to expect, or where i can go to study up interview prep for trading firms? they said that i shouldnt brush up on anything, that "you either have it or you dont", but they also said that they will ask me some math questions and that it would help if i had basic knowledge of options (which i do) since they are a derivatives trading firm.

any help would be appreciated. thanks a bunch

ARD45, what's your opinion? Comment below:

It differs by firm, but most true prop firms have pretty similar interview structures. In no particular order...

You'll most likely be given at least one test that will have you do quick math and identify patterns such as 'what shape is next in the pattern'. Not much you can prepare for there.

They may ask some brain teasers/critical thinking questions.

You'll also have the actual interview(s) where they'll probably ask personality questions. Having a military background should be great here, as you'll almost surely be asked about times where you took risks or had to make a quick decision. Think of some times where you've failed and had to bounce back as well. Think of some stories before you go in.

Knowing a lot about the market/finance is obviously a plus, but most prop firms look for thinking ability and personality first.

Good luck!

WegmansTuna, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Whether or not it works in your favor, the success of your interview will be based solely on how well you do on the prob/brain-teasers. That's the nature of the beast w/ prop shops. They might ask you some personality/fit ?'s, but at the end of the day, they will carry very little weight.....

Ok, so you are interviewing with FNY. Their interviews are not quantitative at all (if you are interviewing for the int./dom. equities division) Their commodities and eq. derivs groups are a lot more prob and brainteaser focused, but unless you have some sort of connect with these groups you will most likely be interviewing for the equities side. Know why you want to trade, why you want to be at FNY, have ideas for trades to put on and why, talk about the market, talk about a time that you failed, talk about a time you took a risk, talk about a time that you lost money and bounced back, etc. feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions...good luck.

Prop is all about idea generation. Be prepared with trade ideas.

What prop is it? fundamental micro (eq/credit) or macro? Be prepared that prop trading at BB (especially on the micro side) = very similar to research, except you actually trade on that view. Have examples that show your research/analytical ability.

listen man, LYNX capital is what they call an arcade. it is not where you want to be working at. for one, they offer no salary, which is an immediate red flag. and the fact that they require you to put forth your own capital to start out is a waving red flag. these arcades profit from transaction fees ... they could care less about how well you trade. do yourself a favor and apply to shops that pay you a salary like a job should ... in nyc try fnys, Jane Street, trillium, chimera, group one, and other more legitimate shops. for real dude, im sorry to burst your bubble, but the interview at LYNX isnt worth the gas it will cost you to get to nyc.

Jan 7, 2016 - 3:40pm
TopTrader, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Arcades are not all bad, you just need to do some research first. What DeighTrader is talking about is completely true for a number of arcades, but there are also a number of legitimate shops that cater to experienced traders. Basically these arcades are setup as a way for the small business owner to cut back on costs while being able to leverage themselves and rent a desk at an arcade. I think arcades a dirty word, most shops are places where people can work for themselves if they have the means and ambition.

They are not necessarily great for new guys to get into unless you do your research and find one that has a strong training program. You're internship should be fine, just make sure they teach you some things and don't just have you running around the desk doing nonsense.

It also helps if they pay a little salary ;-)

Prop Trading Interview - First finance interview (Originally Posted: 02/17/2011)

So I have my first ever finance interview next week for a prop trading firm. I was wondering if anyone had any advice in how to go about preparing for the interview. Would a prop trading interview be essentially the same as a normal S&T interview? I'm assuming the first round interview will be mostly behavioral, so if anyone has any advice or comments in how to adequately prepare I'd appreciate it. I know WSO has a good behavioral and technical interview guide you can buy...

So prop trading firms don't typical follow the first round behavioral, second round technical format? I'm thinking the best way for me to prepare is just be up to date on recent market events and run over some behavioral questions....it's seems futile to try and prepare for brain teasers or mental math questions...

It ranges from behavioral -> technical to 100% technical. The style of interview will really depend on the firm.

Preparing for Prop Shop Interviews (Originally Posted: 09/29/2013)

Currently a junior at a semi target school, ranked in top 10 for Finance Undergraduate Degree, and am trying to get in a daily routine of preparing myself for upcoming recruiting season for summer internships.

I'm good friends with a senior trader in his own commodities firm in Chicago, he's well respected and has lots of reputable connections. He said he was more than willing to toss my resume around and help me get my foot in the door for some Chicago Prop shops. With the possibility of getting my foot in the door for at least 1 prop shop in Chicago being rather high, I was curious to you all at WSO what do you suggest I do to prepare myself for these kinds of interviews?

I've been told BB S&T interviews are different than Prop shops, more interested in what you know rather than how well you can learn. BB ask you to pitch stocks, ask you more technical questions, ask more market related questions, etc. While prop shops are more brain teasers, mental math, conditional probability, and fit-based questions.

Anyone suggest any sort of resources to start taking a look at on a daily basis to better prepare myself for these kinds of interview questions? I've read How Would You Move Mount Fuji before and found it helpful, but still want/need more.

What to expect in a higher round of interview for a prop trading shop (Originally Posted: 11/27/2013)

Hello guys,

I AM new on this forum and pretty new in whole trading interview process. I have just qualified for the third round interview with Jane Street for trading position. I would like to know what will differentiate you from the other candidates in their process, because I believe they are quite a lot well prepared candidates for a few places. I have run through some of the questions and estimations asked there, but would really want to hear as many advices and experiences as possible with this topic.

Since interview is going to be held within a week, I don't have time for ordering books on this topic, but any good links or pdf documents would be great.

econometricks, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Go to a local book store and pick up "50 challenging questions in probability" by fredrich mosteller, as welll as "my best mathematical and logic problems" by martin gardner (both are small paperbacks that cost around $5). I've found that a lot of the top quantitative shops (JSC included) asked questions that were directly from these texts. When I say this, I mean literally verbatim, there were a few that I skipped over when reading and was kicking myself when I was asked the question. Memorizing how to do all ~110 problems combined is probably not the best idea, but the thought process you'll develop is key. Since you only have a week it might be tough to get through all of them, but if you set aside 2-3 hours to go through 10 problems from each book you'll do well. If you've gotten this far, it probably won't take you that long to work through the problems, just do you best solve a problem without looking at the solution.

I never made it to the final round, but a friend of mine had the super day and said the culture was very very nerdy (and this is coming from a CS major from one of the top engineering schools), and because of this he ended up declining the offer.

Why market-making? Prop trading interview (Originally Posted: 05/25/2014)

Hi, I'm interviewing with a market-making prop-trading firm in a week and this is a question that tripped me up in my last interview. I'm not honestly sure how to answer it. The truth is market-making trading is the only kind of prop-trading I really know of/understand. Everything other strategy, especially fundamental driven-ones, I've really seen seems to me like the kinds of thing a Hedge Fund does and not a prop-trader. (I'm obviously wrong here) But I was wondering what a good answer to this kind of question might be?

@OP: generally when they ask this question they're asking why trading in general - a good answer is that you like to make quick decisions and are a competitive person. In terms of why market making, if they press on it, you can say you are really analytically/quantitatively-minded, as market making is really just an exercise in risk management.

Aliquam incidunt dolorem voluptatibus corrupti voluptatem. Non error possimus a harum maxime eum similique fugit. Atque consectetur reprehenderit ea dolores doloribus. Et repudiandae repellendus voluptatum recusandae odio quibusdam tempore.

Distinctio velit eveniet necessitatibus numquam. Ut delectus eveniet voluptate ea. Nihil expedita dignissimos molestiae modi non sapiente.

In nisi sed dolore temporibus. Rerum quis vitae quasi. Voluptate non in aperiam.

Dolor consequatur sunt mollitia ut ad quia perferendis voluptas. Consequatur velit eum odio quia. Fugiat sunt libero et ratione. Repellat et saepe in ex quo.
