I have an upcoming interview with Amazon for a Support Engineer position. This is the second interview after the recruiter.

Any ideas of what I should expect ?
I was told there might be some live coding during the interview but recruiter seemed vague about it.

      I remember them asking:

      Can you give me a brief summary of your resume?
      Why Amazon?
      Would you rather go towards being a software developer or a senior support engineer?

      Talked about the role in general how it has some on call rotation, small team but they’re building it out. Would be working with Hardware and Software teams, and doing some light programming in Python and C++.

      Nice, thanks. I'm going to bet the question they asked on being an SDE vs the support engineer is going to determine the amount of coding examples you have to do.

    Prepare for Linux and networking along with coding. Coding usually involves manipulating files, logs, making http requests etc. Very basic/easy leetcode should be more than enough. But deep dive into troubleshooting sys and nw

      You were right! I should’ve prepped more on this but saw this late :(

      2nd Interview just happened but I wish I had remembered more. It did end early and didn’t end up doing live coding since I didn’t have much experience.

      Sounds like it went bad but I did genuinely enjoy the conversation. I hear back within a couple days haha.

      Thank you for your response!
