    Agreed. I interviewed for a backend position, and for the first time LC wasnโ€™t necessary.

    They will measure your performance based on your dev skills (coding style, design patterns, testing, etc).

    It was an interesting approach, but I didnโ€™t feel challenged at all. It felt like a regular day-to-day task.

    Good luck!

      Thatโ€™s probably the point though.

    Onsite is 3 technicals + 1 leadership and culture

    System design: design a component
    Bug squash: fix a bug in an open source project
    Integration: send a bunch of http requests

    Bug squash was really weird, I donโ€™t think I asked the right clarifying questions and ultimately struggled through the problem. The dev environment took a bit of time to set up too.

    On the integration interview, node js was painful without scaffolding code. I ended up spending a bunch of time finding npm packages and setting things up instead of coding. Python, java, and c++ all had existing scaffolding.

    They definitely created something where no amount of leetcode can guarantee a pass. Best way to pass is to make a friend at stripe and go through those exercises.
