What kind of questions do SWES with 2 years of experience get?

Is it still the same data structures and algorithms stuff?

Are there other things I should be picking up on the job that will be tested when I interview? For example, let's say I want to go interview at airbnb in 2 years (I'm a new grad).

What kind of questions should I expect?

    You'll likely get system design questions in addition to the usual stuff

      OP
      Any examples of a popular question? Are these something that I can prepare for on the side or is it something that comes naturally on the job as a SWE?

    there are study materials (search for system design primer on github) but the best place is to understand the systems you use at work and to read good engineering blogs (topically, the airbnb engineering blog has some stuff)
