    OP
    You mean, I should focus on general SW and study DS and algorithms well right?

    I remember seeing a couple of teams that needed to hire mobile devs for app work and they were trying to skirt the system a bit by building out specific interview loops so they could interview/focus more on the candidates work exp, knowledge of mobile ecosystem, etc instead of distributed systems design, etc. Not sure how they ended up working out but they will have hard time transferring to other opps internally as soon as their potential new manager asks them to design Netflix
