      It’s a program that have some coaching before becoming a full time, you basically work with 2 teams and then you “graduate” into full time if you did well.

      The interview is just like regular swe, I feel like I didn’t solved very well my last coding round, sincerely thought I was going to get rejected. To my surprise they came with an offer with the opportunity of coursing the program. Btw you can apply on Facebook’s career page they have the role listed with the same name(found it later). They say that ~90% of the people that course the program successfully graduates

      Prepared using leetcode/cracking the coding interview. Divided topics and did medium/hard problems after reviewing the theory. I found leetcode premium really helpful. Good luck on your interviews!

      I think did really well on every round but the last one. I got a phone screen, then on-site 2 coding rounds, system design and a behavioral/coding. All coding were mid leetcode level.

      Yeah! I’m super excited by the opportunity, have no experience with the ranges of these companies, that’s why I ask.

      OP
      The level they’ll put me in after graduating is E4. No RSU(since technically I’m not a full time yet)
