      At 5 yoe.. It's sde2 unless you have done some universe changing stuff.

      It will be mostly technical.. Coding, Algorithms, ds, hld, lld, system design. Few interviewers might deep dive into your past work.
      Read abt leadership principles and prepare 1-2 examples for each of them. u won't be grilled too much on that but failing that could mean rejection.

      Try to come to a solution after discussion and agreement.
      They don't want people who just know the answer and don't care to discuss and pros and cons and just code the solution. I have seen few awesome guys getting rejected because if this reason.

    Disproportionately high focus on leadership principles and stories about them.
