When candidates are being interviewed for SWE, what matters more? People talk about looking for your ability to think, but others say that they're timing how long it takes you to complete each problem you're assigned so that they can make the problem more complex.

Thanks!

    Obviously both, demonstrate your critical thinking skills and ability but do it fast enough to complete every part of the question...

    Usually you have much much more time to deal a problem than the time you have in an interview
