Outcome: Rejected

When did you have this interview?: Last Month

I received technical phone screen after getting a referral. I was little nervous and stumbled through most of the interview. I was asked talk about a recent data science project I worked on and then asked two technical questions and a simple coding question.

What kind of technical questions did you get asked?

The first question was given amount of heads when flipping a coin how would you tell it was biased. Even though I had seen this question before I totally messed up the process at first and then tried another way that broke a rule of thumb. The second was about to give an example of when the median be a more appropriate measure of centrality compared to the mean and vice versa. The coding was straight forward just getting the sum of even and odd roots to 100.
