Does system design play a big role as coding rounds? Interviewed at Google and received mixed feedback from interviews, but recruiter mentioned that my SD round was good.

      There is a great YouTube channel with Senior Amazon developer. I think it is called "System design interview" :)

    You need to clear the bar for both design and coding. I think you are hoping SD will make up for the mixed coding and unfortunately it won’t. Can you imagine the HC concluding with, “I thought SD was strong but coding is mixed, but since SD was so strong, let’s hire this person anyway.”?
