Would you recommend AWS *hardware* team?

Preparing for a Hardware QA role onsite interview.

Would appreciate tips on preparing for these interviews . (Phone screens have so far focused on fairly easy coding questions and leadership principles)
A bit confused as I’m not a coder by profession (but a very good scripter 🤷‍♂️). So do I focus on hardware fundamentals or leetcode.

I applied to this role because AWS is absolutely killing it out there and my TC at Apple is a joke.

    What hardware? I thought it was all in the cloud?

      No. Can be anything. Hw is nuanced
      Verification is done on a code/logic level. Then there’s validation. Then you can have firmware QA that’s still technically hardware QA. If you making a board with 100 different components and ICs you need to test they all work well as a system. Manufacturing Test is also QA.

      I’m gonna start learning how to code Apps. And made a blind-hw app. I am convinced I won’t get any meaningful inputs here haha

    HW doesn't pay well in general. I'll be surprised if AMZN pays more than Apple.
