Does anyone know if this phone interview will be roughly the same as the standard engineer interviews? Can’t find much information to prepare for

      Was there very much depth in system design? Some of the companies I have interviewed with recently have been asking yarn configuration questions, or just overal config setting alterations

      Mostly code and optimization. No yarn or config questions. Have you interviewed at Uber by chance?

      OP
      I have, but as a consultant data engineer. So idk if the questions come out the same.
      Two interview sections - first technical, second fit.

      Technical they asked me to explain a MPP to a grandma. Then several LeetCode medium questions.

      But idk if that’s anywhere near the same, was just for a 6 month gig.

      OP
      The experience could be completely separate. But they asked me a stack related question, as well as a permutation via recursion.

      Any more tips on google that they asked you? Idk why, but I seem to place their interviews on a pedestal - so I’m nervous af haha
