I have a series of video interviews coming up for a senior backend developer role at OCI.
I can handle the LC questions(probably) but can anyone let me know what to expect in terms of system design and object oriented programming. Will there be a lot of database and query related discussion too?
Then there were about 2 coding rounds on coderpad(easy-medium) a f2f hiring manager round,
a behavioral round and a behavioral + design round with bar raiser.
To elaborate a bit:
All of my rounds except for HM round happened via zoom meetings with guys in USA and coding happened on coderpad. I was able to come up with optimal answers and working code for all the coding questions in every round well within 1 hour. One of these rounds ended 20 mins earlier coz the interviewer didn't ask a 3rd question while every other round had 3 questions instead of 2 due to extra time. Some interviewers were really happy while some didn't show much emotions. I think that is what made them hire me. Despite the negatives I describe next.
Round with hiring manager went bad, we met in his office and he explained all about the team and work in detail and then gave me some career advice before asking system design and behavioral which I did poorly in, however he understood my background and told me we can work on it.
I learned from my mistakes in this round and answered better in last round with bar raiser.
