I currently work at Amazon as an L4. Got hit up by a recruiter for a production engineer role at FB since I have prior experience doing Linux development as an embedded developer. My current team wlb is really good and I'll probably be promoted in Q2, but I don't particular like the work we're doing and it doesn't fit my skill set particularly well. Does anyone have any insight into what the production engineer role entails?

- Apple / Eng cho ChangProduction engineer means SRE. Don’t interview if you’re currently an SDE.
- Facebook SmittenPE and SWE at Facebook are paid the same (I realize this isn't the question that was asked though)
The focus is just different, so don't let people scare you away.
Some SWEs wouldn't pass PE interviews and the other way around too. One isn't better than the other. Choose what suits you best.
