What should I expect from the on site interview at Spotify? What should I focus on for prep? What is the case study round like? Any other suggestions.

Thanks

    It's not too bad. They don't like whiteboard interviews, I was given a Mac laptop with intellij IDE and the problem and I had to solve it on the laptop itself, running test cases etc. The case round is pretty straightforward, they tell you there is a server that is down, how would you debug. You have to ask the right questions like 'i would check the request log' upon which they reveal what information that log holds. You have to keep asking these key questions for them to reveal more information

      Yep you are supposed to talk. Also if you don't remember some parameter to a function like sort in python for example you are supposed to use the hint function in the IDE

      It was more algo but a simpler. I would say leetcode easy. It's basically .. at Spotify we track things like this. Let's see if we can do the same here

      Work culture is great, they have a million game rooms and karaoke rooms. Everyone is very very friendly and a mix from all over the world.

      OP
      I see. Did you go interview at their Stockholm office or were you in NYC?
