Hi, I have a lead/Principal onsite interview at salesforce next week. The interview is with 2 architects, 1 hiring manager (sr. Director) and 1 with a Principal engineer.
What can I expect? Should I focus more on coding problems or design? Scalable systems? Data modeling? Looking at the line of interviewers I don’t expect much of coding questions. Right?
If any one can help who has interviewed in the same capacity is much appreciated.
Fyi i have ~15 yr of experience
Location is SF
Thanks in advance..

    Depends on location. No interview happens in Bay Area without rotating a binary tree or two

    There will be coding questions. No doubt about that. If you are not in the groove, start practicing Leetcode.
