Amazon writing assignment

Mar 17 11 Comments

Hey blind,

I was wondering if anyone else has done the written assignment for amazon and has some advice? I’ve been told to focus on the leadership principles, but was curious if there’s any particular I should emphasize?

It’s for a design researcher role and I have to summarize a previous project in 1 page.

    You must be interviewing for L6.

      I’m in the middle of the recruitment process with Amazon now. They are having me do a writing sample that is due a couple days before my on-site. I assumed it was for a level 5 but I’d love it if they were considering me for a level 6. How do I confirm this?

      Interesting. I did not get asked for one for my L6 interview fall 2017. I think it’s a great idea. Anything to assess dimensions other than LC!

      Ask your recruiter. It probably depends on role and org as well

      Sorry, I’m not too familiar with Amazon’s levels, but is L6 considered senior? I’ve done a quick google, but just wanted to confirm.

      Yes. For SDE it's SDEIII which is considered senior. L7 this then principal.

    Looks like they are trying to get some free work out of you.
