Hi. I'm a junior and received a first round 20-30min phone screening trading interview at Five Rings Capital LLC for their summer internship. Can anyone give me some insight as to how the interview might go? The founder is from Jane Street Capital I believe, so I wonder if the interview will be as hard as I've heard Jane Street interviews are.
Thanks a lot!
five rings Capital reviews
Five Rings is a proprietary trading firm that prides itself on an entrepreneurial and collaborative environment. Our users shared that this is a great place to work and that the interview questions are highly technical.
I had an in-person with them through my school for their summer internship, and it was entirely technical. They legitimately didn't ask anything else. Very similar to a Jane Street interview, but possibly more technical.
I went through the whole interview process for FT.
It is exactly like a JSC interview in terms of technical questions. there are many JSC questions, so look them up there. They also ask some personal questions as well, like why you want to do trading, etc.
To give u background, it is created by Jason McCarthy, an Ex-Partner at JSC, and they have around ~10-20 employees.
I have great respect for the firm and I think they are a great group to be part of.
No market questions, almost no prop shops will ask u about market questions.
