    1) coding will be algo and DS, as usual, they won’t be tricky and will be framed clearly (FB and G like to present theirs by hiding the algo and DS, while Amazon tends to go right to it); 2) design something, it may very well be something real to the EC2 team; 3) be prepared to use STAR approach to answer questions framed around the Leadership Principles. It is imperative to know that you will be more scrutinized on your LPs than your tech knowledge. So please outline for yourself what you’ve done in your career and what you’ve learned from it. Because you will be asked “tell me about a time when you had to do this and how you did it”. The interviewers will not be looking at your resume and nobody will ever ask you about something they’ve read on it. It’s actually forbidden to directly reference your history, you will be asked to explain it framed around these LP questions. Trust me, you don’t want to be stuck there in silence, running through a disordered index in your mind trying to find the best scenario of “tell me about a time when you exceeded your customers expectations, and what was the outcome of it”. First of all you’ll waste precious time, because the schedule is a big deal. And maybe worse, you dug up a lame example and afterwards you kick yourself because you actually had a much better example that didn’t come to you at the moment. So index your history in advance!
