A Window Into Our SQL Interviews


The New York Times Data & Insights team works with departments across the company, and our analysts need a strong grasp of SQL. This is what to expect from the SQL portion of data analyst interviews.

This isn't earth-shattering, but it's neat to see that the NYTimes does a lot of the same stuff to hire great analysts that the rest of us do. I love that they've put in the work to create a anonymized, randomized data set to use as a part of the assessment: I think that creating this real-life data set is critical and often harder than expected.

Solid, short read.
