Should data scientists Leetcode? I was under the impression most of them were doing SQL and high-level Python. Have any DS been asked data structure/algo questions in interviews?

    I would look there for practice. Though I'm not sure what an interview would look like. It probably depends where you interview and who you happen to interview with.

    DS interview at Boeing was of course still behavioral but all their interviews are.

    Data scientist without decent programming ability is embarrassing.

    Leetcode is not very helpful for ds interviews, except a few SQL questions. Ds interviews focus more on machine learning algorithms (theory) and some bit of SQL and r/python/sas coding

      No DS has ever used sas.

      Agreed, not tech companies. Healthcare and insurance data scientists use sas.
