Hey Guys

I recently interviewed for Internal Solutions Engineer at Facebook. Of 5 total onsite interviews, I took time to solve a coding problem on whiteboard and did not even get a chance to code it on coderpad. I just gave a high level solution at the end. The problem was not too Hard and I was able to solve it when i got my cool mind at home in evening .. :D

I feel that my other 4 interviews which consisted of 1 coding, 1 system design and 2 general/behavioral rounds went good .

Its been 8 days now and I have not heard back from recruiter.

What are the odds of getting an offer in this situation ?

TIA

    How quickly did they contact you back about your application? Did they email or call you? I've applied to facebook several times but haven't gotten a response back.

      I got an email from a recruiter if i was interested in this role. Though, I had applied for SWE roles several times but they never reached me back for those roles.

      I'd recommend finding a technical sourcer or recruiter online (linkedin) and reaching out to them instead of just applying cold. Applying cold works but having a recruiter is way easier.

    Is internal solutions engineer different from a regular Solutions Engineer at FB? I've read that the coding bar is much lower for Solutions Engineers so you may still have a shot. It's been 8 days, I'd email the recruiter and check in.

    Can I PM you?

      Sorry about that. I was wondering about the sentiment behind the role. Just created a new post in tech careers. I’m trying to gauge if it’s even worth pursuing as everything at FB here in Seattle are specialized in VR, embedded systems or ML. All of which I know nothing about. So I’m thinking about taking this interview.
