I'm currently looking for a referral to DropBox.

I have 4 years of experience - all in Azure.

I'm currently working on building distributed systems that handle billions of ingress and egress messages.

I have completed 400+ Leetcode and going through Grokking the System Design interview right now.

If someone can refer me, I would appreciate it!

    Sigh.... The new referral requirement is "I studied leetcode".

    LOL, why even go to college anymore?

    Is this like the new “I don’t have a PhD but I took a coursera ml course so refer me to ml scientist roles “ ?

    Wow do people check number of problems solved in leetcode ?

    • It shows how much the person is dedicated on switching their job. I would personally refer someone who solved 100 problems over someone with less than 10 given similar qualifications

    It's really sad that the number of leetcodes solved is a fucking requirement these days. time to switch to management, I guess

      I agree. Unfortunately that is the state of today's interviewing culture. Trust me, I would have preffered to work on cool stuff rather than do all of these Leetcodes.

      Nah. Not blaming you. It's a trash game, but it pays well...

      Rocket ship. But the part where the fuel is already spent and you’re just in orbit going in circles.

      I don't know but I recently started using their web app more because I was on Ubuntu. I was really impressed with the integrations they've implemented

      When they offer you Google salary and let you work 5 hours a day, do you still question it's future that much?

      Oh come on. With a single kafka queue - 1B requests takes 500 seconds (at 2M/s and some Go workers). Unless it's on EC2, then it's slower ;) j/k sorta

    Impressing OP. Good luck going forward. I’m curious how you prepped for System Design. Any pointers and experience you could share? 🙏

      Still doing that. I'm doing Grokking and watching a bunch of talks that companies give at conferences.

    Don't think leetcode helps much for Dropbox questions.

      I don't think it matters anyways. I can't get an interview there.

    Number of problems solved is not the metrics you're looking for.
