Test Automation engineer from Oracle to Software developer in top tech companies
I am working in Oracle as Test Automation engineer. Overall YOE: 8.5 years. But I'm very passionate about development and can solve hard DS and algorithms as well. Still I'm preparing for 1 more year to crack top companies like google/FB/Amzon/uber/Linkedin/Netflix etc .... I'm aiming for SDE3 at Amazon and equal level in any top 10 companies in bay area. Please let me know how difficult to get a interview call from these top companies for SDE3 equivalent roles with 8.5 years UI and back end Automation experience. Cracking the interview is not a problem for me. But will I get any call since I don't have real development exp like front end/back end /machine learning etc ... if so, do I need to apply for roles like software engineer, software developer etc... instead of front end/back end developer.
I'm very much passionate about development. Wanted to shift my career from QA to development. Please help me with your inputs.
