    Have great narratives that map back to LPs. Be prepared to be an expert in multiple tech domains that are focused on LP outcomes. Remember, articulate the Amazon LP through your experience and never ever describe the LPs back to an Amazonian, they know them better than you. Also, get comfortable whiteboarding.

      Little to no code for the loop unless you're going for a principal. Having said that, coding is never the core focus.

      Thanks. I'm waiting to hear back from an AWS recruiter. Apparently this is a thing with Amazon recruiters - either that or I suck. :)

      AWS recruiters are hit and miss but once they start, the process will move fast.

      I'm scheduled for a 90 minute technical phone interview. is this basically going to be a run of questions like "what is tcp vs udp", "how do you scale a web app", etc... ?

    Have narratives that are broad and deep. LP, LP and LPs. Be humble but thorough.

      Is this for the 90 minute technical phone interview or onsite?

      My recruiter mentioned a presentation during the on site - what does that entail?

      I didnt hear presentation for onsite. What role is this? Other companies such as Google ask for presentations. Phone screen is generally 60mins.

      I think it's a senior SA role so that might be why there's a presentation?

      I have a 90 minute phone tech screen coming up. How do you answer a question about TCP vs UDP and link that to the LPs? Or are the LPs specific for behavior questions?

    Do you mean this is SA manager role? Do you know the level?

      Did you have your phone interview yet? I was just told by the recruiter the hiring manager wants to proceed and next step is a 90 minute technical phone interview.
