Throw em at me.

Pretty sure I'm going to bomb my amazon interview so I plan on taking prep more serious, mainly targeting startups but I'm open to large companies with interesting problems preferably in the kube space as it's been pretty interesting to learn.

Would really prefer companies in Boston area but open to anywhere.

Not really looking for referrals more looking at companies I should apply to.

Also ideally theyd be open to hiring someone with ~ 1yoe

      Agree.

      FAANG is tier-1, but Albertson is at another level: tier-0.

      How do you compare Albertsons to Walmart?

    Not Wayfair. Avoid this one if you want to learn about anything besides how to play corporate game of thrones

      You guys have some issues there. I interviewed- people are very “inspired.” Monolithic MSSQL backend.

      Sadly yes. It’s a mess. We aren’t a tech company. We are a logistics and digital marketing company. Engineering is a cost center. Despite this being obvious recruiters love to sell us as an up and coming tech company to new grads and managers from 5th rate tech companies.
