On-site interview - Backend Engineer - System Design?
Graduated from school in December 2018 >> started working at a stealth startup in the Bay Area (Risk Analytics and Backend) as a SWE to go through a rapid learning phase >> currently recruiting to join a more mature and growing company/FAANGULTAD
Current TC: 93k
YOE: 0.5, lol
Went on an on-site (for L1 SWE) very recently and was only tested on database design there - struggled with arriving at the efficient design answer (denormalized relation), but definitely was able to showcase my knowledge of problem decomp/data object modeling/ERD/database trade offs.
There was a previous phone interview that lasted 1.5 hours with challenging algo/OOP/language-specific questions that I did well on. Also, was able to strike good technical conversations (filled with brain teasers, probability questions, and more conversations on the company’s vision/dev process etc.) with VP and other Engineers. Only negative point was my sub-par performance in the design round.
What do you think my chances are for getting an offer?
