WalmartLabs – Sunnyvalue: Base – 150K, Bonus – 20%, Equity – $40K (4 year vesting), Equity Refresh – $40K(4 year vesting) / year

Jet.com – Hoboken, NJ: Figuring out the number, but told them 270K TC is desirable

Tableau – Seattle: Base 135K, Bonus 10%, Equity: 4000 shares(as of today, $100/share). Yearly refresh based on review

Facebook (Applied Machine Learning): After HC review, they require one more machine learning design and career / coding follow up interviews.

    Great to see your number of offers.

    Can you share your interview experiences? Which company asks coding questions in all rounds? Which grills more on resume? Which one for behavioral?

    Thanks in advance.

      Most of the companies have mix of coding, system design, and past experience / behavioral interview.

      These companies seem less care about resume, but coding(in my interview experience) : Jet.com, Tableau, Walmartlabs, Square

      These companies grills on my resume: Atlassian, Twitter, Apple, Lyft, VMWare

      These companies asks a lot of behavioral questions: Amazon, Coursera

      Hope this answer is helpful.

      Why Oracle? It’s a company that is slowly decaying.

      @Влад Thanks for the feedback. Would it be the case for OCI as well?

      I am not familiar with OCI specifically. In general I don’t see Oracle innovating. I just see them doing what they can to maintain the company’s hold. The pay they are offering you is good however I question whether the money alone will fulfill your ambitions

      I have completed, Easy 186 Medium 152 Hard 21 (not only this year, it is cumulative over a couple years). For few of medium and most of hard questions, I had to look up the answers.

    • How were the fb coding rounds? Had you seen the problems before? Were they asking hards?

      I had not seen the same problems beforehand. I think, they were advanced medium difficulty (not as hard as leetcode hard, but harder than typical leetcode medium).

    Do you have prior machine learning experience?

      OP
      While I do not have prior machine learning experience, I have been studying myself to become machine learning engineer.
      I probably did not give good enough signal in ML design round, during the initial interview loop, so I am getting follow up for that. Do you think ML domain would be more competitive comparing to general software engineering (such as building back end services, infra, cloud, etc)?

      If they don't get good signals from the design round you could be rejected or down leveled.

    Congratulations! You are killing it man with so many offers. Facebook would be be the best choice if you get it after follow up interviews.

      Thanks for your feedback. Do you know if WalmartLabs used to pay more than this range?

    I think a lot depends on what you want to do. Oracle though not a good brand would give you cloud exposure. Facebook if you get, is a no brainer. Rest seem e-commerce focused - which I don't know may be your core competency.

      Thanks for the feedback. That is good to know, in terms of brand value. Do you think e-commerce sector is as promising as other areas (such as Ed-tech, Cloud, Social Media)?
