FAANG SWE Prep

Sep 10 13 Comments

I currently work in DE and BIE roles but want to switch to Swe at a FAANG company. Don't have a lot of experience with ML/AI and Python but ready to learn anything that's required. Also, would need some tips on how to brush up the basics for CS
YOE: 3.5
TC: 100k

Any suggestions on how to start preparing for these companies would be very helpful.

      Gotcha! Do you think i should apply for swe 1 or 2? P.S. my exp on DE is mostly on data warehouse and shell scripting so not sure if that's being counted

    You don't need ML or AI, these are not for software developers, they r more suited for data scientists, there is a difference, your post said SWE, so what do u actually want.

    Note I'm not saying swe don't interact with ML, I'm just saying they can be different fields.

    Take a CS course for free from udemy or MIT or Stanford then start leetcoding

      Thanks! I am more into SWE, the JD for these companies usually say that knowledge of ML/AI is preferred, but i am not sure
