I recently interviewed with Airbnb, lyft and Instacart and they had a take home challenge as the first step. On the other hand companies like Facebook, Uber, Netflix etc. don’t have take home challenges and I was able to get to onsite. I never made to next round at Airbnb, lyft and Instacart, Curious to know what they look in the data challenge and how can I crack it! Any insights would help
I refuse to do these free work. I hope other candidates refuses too. But I understand fresh graduates don’t have a choice. I have a PhD in applied maths and 5+ years of working in applied ML, so at this point I can say a big Fuck u to these tests. I interview candidates for ML and you really don’t need these tests if you are competent at your work.
