      This is part of my studying. Gives me a sense of how much those who are interviewing me are making, and how it will influence their mindset. E.g. what they consider 'expensive'.

      The rest is just a bunch of STAR formatted stories designed to be delivered as opposed to recited.

      I had a chat with the HR recruiter who briefed me on what to expect.

      1) Know the leadership principles, but don't simply regurgitate them. Be able to show how I interpret the leadership principles. I'm looking for company-produced videos of current SAs and how they interpret and implement the leadership principles. Also looking for posts made by current SAs to see in what ways it's acceptable to interpret the leadership principles.

      2) I'm going to marathon re:Invent keynotes. See what AWS is most proud of, and at least have a cursory understanding of their products along with the benefits--not features, benefits.

      3) I'm putting together stories which demonstrate a new technology I learned, how quickly I got to hello world, and how long after that I got to certain milestones. I expect it's impossible to know the full ecosystem down to the smallest nuances and details. So I'm focusing more on the data-oriented products, and am getting comfortable saying "I'm not sure" or "I don't know" for the not-so-data-oriented products.

      4) I've built some stuff using just the free tier mixing Dynamo, Lambda, API Gateway, SQS, Cognito and the micro instance. These were potential micro saas ideas I wanted to test. Going to explain what I did, why I thought it would work, and ultimately why it didn't work.

      5) What was explained to me in the phone screening is this specific flavor of SA is more product evangelist, and less presales. So a lot of what I'd be doing is speaking at conferences, doing product demonstrations, and writing whitepapers.

      6) I have a small library of STAR-formatted technology stories highlighting different solutions I've implemented in my career thus far as it relates to data and analytics. I happen to be familiar with relational databases, nosql databases, hadoop, EMR, RedShift, and BigQuery--need to be aware of competitor's offerings.

      7) I've read through other interview questions and they focus more on databases, networking, cloud architecture, containerization, etc. I've already built out prototypes which have been put into production using a lot of these technologies.
