    Amazon Echo review: A perfect 10 | ZDNet

    When Amazon announced the Echo recently, many didn't know what to make of it. The cylindrical tower is an audio system that is always connected to the web. It can stream music from Amazon's Prime Music library, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and play local music collections.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews. Followed by onsite interview. Prepare data structures thoroughly - heaps, trees, linkedlists. Get your string manipulations done too. They test out your problem solving technique. Besides whiteboard coding, they also asked about modeling an airport. One of the interviewers was more intent on stalling and interrupting me than listening to my solution. That was the only harrowing part of the interview.
