Hey guys! Anyone knows what the interview process is like for a senior info sec engineer at LinkedIn? Is there coding? Or ctf rounds? Recruiter was not very helpful and could not give too much info.

Location: Sunnyvale

TIA!

    LI has very weak engineering. infosec likely weak as well. you should skate through.

      Really? I heard the interviews are pretty tough!! Hopefully they don’t end up asking data structure/algo questions!

    I interviewed with the same team. Had my phone interview recently. I was asked to parse a http log file. The recruiter was completely unhelpful and I had no idea what to expect.

      Hiring manager = no code. This is the best way actually for security engineer. Otherwise they throw you into a tech phone screen with a SWE asking you leetcode medium to hard and you’re like whaaat??

      The recruiter kind of went mia. I followed up again to set up an interview. Will update this thread after my phone round! Are you looking to interview for the same position?

    I got lots of Active Directory questions years ago and lots of Kerberos questions as well. This was pre MSFT.
