DE Shaw Interview Experience for Internship (On-Campus)

This is my interview experience for DE Shaw India. They visited our campus for the 2020-2021 session. The whole interview process is done virtually due to COVID-19.

Round 1

It’s an online coding round with some general aptitude and technical questions and 2 coding questions. The duration of this round is of 95 minutes. Both the questions are from dp.

The coding questions are:

1. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-maximum-possible-stolen-value-houses/

2. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/minimum-positive-points-to-reach-destination/



Those students who can solve any one of the above questions are selected for the next round.

Out of 150 students, only 20 students are selected for the second round.

Round 2

It’s a technical interview round. Two interviewers are taking the interview. 

It’s started by asking the first question of keypad encryption, given a string s we have to print the number we press corresponding to the word  https://practice.geeksforgeeks.org/problems/keypad-typing/0.

The second question is given an array of integers generate the maximum possible number by concatenating them https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/given-an-array-of-numbers-arrange-the-numbers-to-form-the-biggest-number/ 

They asked some gfg puzzles. 

The third question is of word break https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/word-break-problem-using-backtracking/ . I am unable to find an approach to this question.

There are two more rounds but I am not selected for those rounds. Hope this interview experience helps you.
