Have an onsite scheduled with them. How is this team?
Have already done an OA and a phone screen. Have another 5-6 onsite rounds scheduled. Is this gonna be for SDE-2? Any specific areas I should focus on for the interview prep?

    Don't ask about WLB, that will fail you right away

      Only one way to find out. Do you personally know anyone in Aurora team? I do, the teams in general are doing very well, but poor wlb

      As a BR I can assure you this is not how we make hiring decisions. Candidates are assessed against our bar and not disqualified by asking about WLB. In fact, WLB is one of the top 3 questions we interviewers get.

    Do LC, having a good review of DS and Algos.
    LPs are very important - helps if you have one STAR example per LP

      Also Grokking the System Design course is good as a starting point

    Focus on System Design, Coding and Amazon Leadership Principles.
    Amazon Aurora recently picked the SIGMOD Systems Award 2019 “for fundamentally redesigning relational database storage for cloud environments”

      System design coding and LP in the same order? System design is asked the most?

      System Design is used to decide the level. SDE, SDE II or SDE III along with LPs and coding. I will say all 3 of them are equally important.

      If your recruiter sent you some prep material go over that. If not, DM your email ID and I can send you.

    Don't focus too much on LC stuff. Rather spend your energy on preparing the 14 LPs

      Worst advice ever! There will 3-4 coding rounds, 1 system design and 1 design and LP for SDE-2+. So, yes focus on Leet and LPs both

    Data Structures and Algorithms - Binary Trees, Hash Maps, Arrays, List, Queue, BFS, DFS, traversal.
    Ask clarifying questions when a problem is thrown at you, do not jump onto it right away even if you know the solution. Think out loud. Write syntactically correct code. Avoid pseudo code. Have amazing examples ready for each and every Leadership Principle. When a behavioral question is asked, try to answer using STAR format - Situation, Task, Action, Result
