Looks like they might take 1 M square feet of office space. Which is... a lot.

Speculation for now. Hope they bring a lot of engineering jobs.

      @toomanymen Could u share your TC and YOE? How tough was the interview?

      Offer was 167k base 360k rsu 40k signing, ~2.7 yoe. Phone interview was a tough LC medium. On site interview was 2 coding 1 behavioral/coding, 1 systems design. The questions asked were 2x LC medium for first coding, 2x LC easy for second. Systems design was “design a simple version of Instagram”

      I think for coding they want absolutely perfect code with great communication skills . So the “difficulty” is not really all about coming up with the solution , but you have to be excellent at communicating the solution and why it works

      Thanks a lot for the details and congrats on the offer! Last year I interviewed there for an ML eng e4 position, there was an additional ML design round. This year I plan to go for SWE instead of MLE

    I wish LinkedIn would expand the Engineering presence in NYC. Would love to move there some day, but it's rather small at present.
