Arcesium Interview Experience (Off-Campus)
  • Last Updated : 30 Nov, 2020

Round 1: Started with an introduction of myself. He asked me to pick a project and enunciate on the same. Asked some questions regarding the same.

  1. Asked about my general problem-solving strategy.
  2. A question of the sliding window. Gave the brute force solution.

    Then O(nlogn) solution and O(n) solution at the end. At each step, he kept asking for optimizations possible and adding constraints. I was asked to write a working code for the problem at the end and point out the corner cases of the problem.

Round 2:

  1. This round was more inclined towards databases and core cs.
  2. Asked me to introduce myself.
  3. Asked me about my experience with web development. Questioned me about authentication.
  4. Explain ACID properties in brief. How do ACID properties play a role when two users try to sign in at the same time? What is the anomaly and how can it be rectified?
  5. Do you know database indexing? What are they? What are the types of indexing? How does indexing work? What are the drawbacks of indexing in RDBMS?
  6. Asked me for a puzzle. There’s a rectangle. A small rectangle is cut from the bigger rectangle ( not necessarily from the center). How will you partition the original rectangle after removing the cut such that the remaining areas of both the partitions are the same?

Round 3:

  1. Supposed to be a Technical Round but the VP took his place.
  2. Asked me to introduce myself.
  3. Why Finance? Why do you want to work with Arcesium? (a fumbly answer was a done way route to elimination) What are your hobbies?
  4. How are you a good fit for us?
  5. Asked me a general quant question.
  6. Asked about the bubble sort algorithm. What is the best and worst-case complexity and when do they occur? Optimize bubble sort.
  7. Design tic tac toe in 5 mins and explain your solution to a 10-year-old.

HR Round:



  1. Introduce yourself.
  2. Why would you like to Join Arcesium?
  3. Do you intend to pursue a master’s?
  4. What kind of work would you prefer working on if you’re selected.
  5. Have you been applied to other companies? Is this your first virtual interview?
  6. A couple more questions that I can’t recall.

Verdict: Selected
