Got an offer from FB, London for L4. I am interested only in backend opportunities and was wondering if there are any good backend teams which work on real problems rather simply maintaining old/legacy systems. I am looking at teams where there are enough technical challenges with respect to scalability.
I have seen the careers page but would like to get some first hand information before i can make a decision.
I did this. Through a referral, I routed my resume to a team I wanted. I have experience for that role and knew I wouldn’t have any issues with system design or behavioral rounds. I slummed through leetcode and aced the interview. I did my interviews very well and got an offer.
It was a match made in heaven - good work in a great company. Where did it go wrong then? I said to myself I want to be here and didn’t interview anywhere. Turns out they give a standard lowball offer if you don’t have other offers.
I’m pissed at them for this ridiculous policy and myself for being too idealistic
