Google cloud platform interview

Microsoft spark
Apr 19 12 Comments

Hi, has anybody recently interviewed for Google cloud platform team? Can you give me some idea as to what type of questions to expect for that team? I was told that there will be no system design round, is that a good thing or a bad thing? Apart from the fact that it makes the interviews easy. But does that mean the position might not be senior enough? Or because I don't have cloud background yet? What type of algorithm questions can I expect?

Role: SWE
Currently: at Microsoft as SWE II - L61
Current compensation: base: ~$140k

    You are being considered for L3-L4. That shouldn’t put you down as compensation is much better than Microsoft. Good luck

      That makes sense actually. L3-4 it can be 5 algorithms/ data structure interviews during the onsite.

    FWIW I was told I would have a system design round but there was none in the onsite, no whiteboarding at all actually

    No system design means junior level?
