Interview Preparation

Interview Process

Interviews at HRT usually consist of a coding test, 1-2 technical phone screens, and a virtual on-site interview. Interview length and topics can vary depending on the role.

Algo Developer Interview Topics

Statistics / Probability
Python / C++ programming
Data analysis

Software Engineering Interview Topics

C++ programming
Debugging skills
CS fundamentals
UNIX / Linux
System / processor performance
Low-level architecture

Think Out Loud

How you solve a problem can be just as important as having the right answer. Thinking out loud gives the interviewer insight into your reasoning and can also help them follow along with your solution.

What to Wear to Your Virtual On-Site

We recommend not wearing a suit. We have a casual dress code at HRT.
