      That depends ... Deliverables are achievable in 40 hrs and SDEs own effort estimates.

    It's a trap. They want to filter out blind users.

    Blind has a lot of horror stories on Amazon. Like regular PIPing of employees. Is this true or your org/ team?

    What's the current mix of the team. What's the hiring bar? There was a time when anyone who could write on a whiteboard was being hired at Amazon and the result was that the team sucked at everything.

    For me to come in at SDE3+ I need to know what's the team's current competency. Would you be willing to share that, may be not now - perhaps at onsite?
