Team blind has a lot of information about SWE interviews but very little about Data Engineering interviews. I am planning to apply at FAANG for the position of Data Engineer, I have a few questions:

1. How is the typical interview format?

2. I have read other posts on team blind that Python is the language you need to use for coding round. Is it absolutely necessary? or can I choose the other language that I am comfortable with?

3. Will the coding round be like leetcode type questions or different?

4. Again will the system design round be similar like SWE interviews or different?

      Yes it looked like SWE salary for the level mentioned.... DE at that level don't get paid that much or I was screwed the most at the time of hiring.

      Thanks for the info. What would be the ideal range for DE in E4 & E5 level then? I’m assuming Base might be similar but stocks would be 50% less than SWE?

      Base will be similar...
      E4 - 140-160
      E5 - 180-200
      You are right that stocks will be half of what SWEs get but not sure what's the range. I just have one data point(mine)
