      I just need some kind of cheatsheet.. lol.. it's a beast. There is really a lot to prepare since every few months new tools and frameworks are getting popular and is in use as well.

    From what I've seen and heard from other friends in the field, expect the technical round to be algorithmic as you'd expect for a Software eng position, but usually with the questions more on the Easy/Medium side as opposed to hard. Expect SQL in addition to coding. Often you get take-home round which usually involves harder and more open ended sql plus an architecture or pipeline design question. Good luck!

    Hey, do you mind sharing the job title. I work at Google and I know we don't have a "Data Engineer" ladder at Google :-) so if you can be a little more specific I may be able to help you. Or, pls feel free to DM me.
