Amazon Data Scientist Phone Interview

Hey guys,

I've got a phone interview coming up for a DS position in Amazon.

I was told that the interview will be an "in-depth technical phone screen". I'll also be connected to an online whiteboard - I was told I may be asked to answer questions on the whiteboard.

I'm hoping to get some guidance here - can anyone give me advice on what I should prepare for? Obviously I'll go over various ML topics but was wondering what flavour of questions I might get. From others who have gone through this experience was the coding focused on SQL or Python/R or all of the above?

Thanks guys

  • SQL mainly. And then a super basic R/python question.

    Ratio of time spent between SQL and R/python was 4:1
    Complexity ratio between SQL and R/python was 5:1
    Number of questions ratio between SQL and R/python was 3:1

    All the best ๐Ÿ˜Š

      Thank you - I have 5 years of experience and a Masters from 2018 so I donโ€™t think this is a graduate hire.

      Should I DM you?

      Thanks again for the help - much appreciated.

    I feel, this is l5 ds role. Not an entry level. Prepare for some fundamental modeling questions, along with sql, python
