What's it's like to crack L6 sr software engineer in FAANG or tier 1 companies?
Just to let you know I don't have any prior experience in tier 1 companies, but have plans to target L6 (levels.fyi) in any of FAANG or tier 1 companies.
Total experience: 13 yrs
What would you suggest for me to prepare in order to succeed in this?
Current actions: leetcode, reading tier 1 engineering blogs for system design..
Also how could I compensate missing brand experience, any open source projects to contribute to?
