What kind of technicals should I expect in a finance interview with a tech firm?

Do tech companies ask technical questions during the interview process (if going for a finance position)?

If so, what sorts of technical questions should I prepare for in my interview prep?

Steve’s Answer

Stay with me but it depends. It depends on the type of finance role you are seeking. Common tools are Netsuite, Coupa, Expensify and Concur. But if you are managing budgets or taxes for the company you will have other tools you use.

I recommend narrowing in on the type of finance role you would like to do or what role you are interviewing for to narrow down the tools that are relevant for that role.

Michael’s Answer

Agree with Steve's response that it depends on the "type" of Finance role you are applying for. There are "corporate accounting" roles that would look for more CPA type questions. If it is an Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) role (e.g., supporting a business function within the company) the questions might lean towards analytical and communication skills. But minimum, you should be an Excel whiz. Not uncommon to throw in a question about a financial calculation in excel (but the trick is, if you don't know it off hand, reply that you'd do a YouTube to figure it out in 30 seconds).

Hello!

You are likely to be asked technical questions during the interview process. That said, you should feel comfortable asking the recruiter what the interviews will focus on or for a prep call to go over the expectations.
