I just got an update from my recruiter that I'm still in track to match around mid/late summer. Probably same for you guys. This is bay area location.

    Come to fb. You’ll join immediately instead of waiting half a year to match teams

      We are definitely hiring E3. Tons of them in bootcamp every 2 weeks.

      But new grads. You weren't hiring experienced hires. But yeah I was in the same boat with Google and only had 2 YOE so it was a no from Facebook and just went to Amazon, got a great offer too

      What if I'm not smart enough to pass fb though

      FB hires E4 if they apply as E5, but don't have strong interview performance. But then you can choose 50 teams at bootcamp, there are probably 10x more open positions than candidates.

    I cleared HC at L3 today. They said they aren’t hiring L3 atm and wait can pretty long. Since when have you been waiting @OP?

      Don't mean to scare you but there have been that many openings for a while. I had an internal friend check in April and there were 1500+ then too. Just not sure what HMs were looking for. I feel like HMs at Google are pickier than HC.

      My friend said most are for tools and infra, and I'm passed for general swe. So that may be why

      I see. SETI is now SWE too so maybe they are recruiting SWEs for EngProd (Org for SETIs). If you are okay with what your friend is working on, why not have them refer you? That's what I ended up doing.

      Good luck with team matching

      Also he said many of the teams are preffered L4 but would take L3. I don't want to join UFO. I heard it's horrible.

      Yeah, I feel like no one wants to join UFO. I was given that option too

    Have they told you what the pipeline is looking like? Are you going to have a lot of options to pick from or will they expect you to choose the first team that's interested?

      Not yet. They said they are making progress. I'm not sure about more details.
