    • Oh rip. Yeah we're kinda bad at that I guess. I referred a friend and he didn't hear anything and then got a rejection a full year later. Honestly maybe consider yourself lucky then :P

    • Im also applying right now for big data roles. Just going based on companies you mentioned, did you also consider the other big N (Google, amazon, Microsoft, fb, Netflix) and startups like Cloudera, Palantir, Robinhood, etc? Pretty much any company that deals with data (and most tech companies do) will be hiring for data engineers.

      I think if you are getting screened out at phone screen stage I'd consider figuring out weaknesses and shoot for a decent pass rate for phone screens before applying more.
      Keep in mind I'm still super nooby relatively speaking so maybe hiring is different for more experienced engineers.

    Phone screen for all of these.

    Linkedin i did well but the problem i have seen was i started coding immediately than explaining the approach.

    Sql round went pretty well .
    No feedback it took 1 week to get feedback (rejection)

    Uber : it was my mistake as i messed up on easy question got tensed
    Qulatircs : 2 phone screen went well but. rejected due to the profile mismatch figured out by VP (before calling for Onsite)
