Systems/Storage Engineer to SWE @ FAANG. Possible ?
I'm working as a systems/storage engineer mostly on commodity enterprise storages of EMC and Linux with YOE 3+.
I now feel like I could try learning algorithms and DS with Python. And once good with these, will try improving practical abilities through LeetCode.
Now, a question that i mind is that, what really matters to FAANG recruiters? Whether one's ability of learning DSA, other factors which FAANG looks for and proving the same in the interview (or) also the previous experiences?
Highly appreciate if you could advise on this, as I'm just trying to learn this world of SWEs and FAANG.
