PM @ Google

I have an on-site with google next week. I don’t have a technical background so what level of algorithms is expected? Is Leetcode level basic enough to pass the technical interview?

    No. Don’t leetcode or any of that. Treat it like a fermi estimation and break it down.

    What you should study is fundamental cs concepts. So get a cheat sheet from first year courses in networking, algorithms, systems, and other topics in computing and study those. Then practice solving the problems.

    PM don’t need to be technical. Just only technical enough to understand the scope of what’s doable by present day technology. And it helps making these dummy engineers listen to you.

      There is no coding part in either.
      You will be asked system design, architecture. You need to understand how to put together an I line service. Example include design: video streaming service, sharing service, design online chess. Etc

      You need to be able to talk and explain your technical background / projects and back them up with examples. Also you need to highlight what your contribution was.

    You have limited time so focus on hard problems on leetcode.

    If you can solve them and explain in 30-45 minutes you have nothing to worry.

    If not, you have nothing to worry either 😜

      Thanks! I can sudo code most of them but actual code will be challenging. I appreciate the answer.

      Please tell me who you're making sudo code for you. I can only get people to sudo make me a sandwich.
