Referral at Two Sigma for SWE?

Applied a few times online with no luck only to realize they have an old resume in the system from a few years back (facepalm). Can’t re-apply to the same req because of this.

Background: Amazon SDE, ~1 yoe, ~200 leetcode and a citadel offer in hand, $150k TC

    How does your citadel offer split looks like?

      OP
      I got lowballed which is why I’m interested in exploring Two Sigma. $200k all in

      That's the lowest Citadel offer I've seen on here. You should interview at more firms than just TS.

      Agree it’s definitely a very lowball for citadel, since that’s practically intern pay, but if OP has background in JS that’s probably doesn’t bode well for chances in other firms

      I’m a generalist with < 1 yoe. Even my recruiter was t sure why I was slotted for a frontend interview

      Well, it's not like $200k is bad. It might not make up for being front end / being at Citadel though.

    Internal referral will not help in general

      Internal referral not not be much different. If the email has been submitted, employees cannot go submit

      OP
      I got lucky I think and my role was specialized. The interviews were live coding in JavaScript with heavy emphasis on ES6 trivia.

      Total 5 rounds
