      TIL you can make more in HR at two sigma than a slightly experienced engineer at GS.

      Given that two sigma HR couldn't figure out how to send me the right coding test, maybe I am in the wrong profession...

      ROFL...what a twist..hence my first question was what role /profile ?
      Someone capable of getting a Quant offer from Jane Street will never ask on Blind

    Given that you’ve given no other criteria: Jane St sounds like a bunch of dickwads in management and they program with Ocaml.

    So Two Sigma.

      Impression I got while researching Jane St. when a recruiter brought them up as a destination. May have been a combo of Glassdoor and web search.

      The impression they gave it was run by a bunch of “smarter than thou” millennials physics dorks who had started it.

      Ultimately figured I’m not the target demo they are hiring, and just passed on sending my resume.

      Am I wrong in my assessment? Obviously if you are working there you can comment.

      One data point, everyone who I loosely know there are Physics geeks, often Olympiad champs, from top schools and have MIT (or similar) physics prof parents. I interviewed there and it felt like they had a really specific kind of person they wanted

    Why even considering working with Ocaml? a great way to make yourself jobless in future

    You have no idea how much of our time you have wasted on this.

    I had already started imagining you driving a Ferrari and owning a beach house in Malibu!
