Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Snowflake in Mar 2022

Interview

Overall very bad experience. Recruiter forgot we had a scheduled call. 2 tech phone screens. 1st interviewer kept dropping out of the call, it happened around 4-5 times in that hour. Easy question that I solved in 5 minutes and then he spent the rest of the time asking about time complexity, tradeoffs, and asking to code it slightly differently. He didnt seem to know what to do with the extra time we had after I solved it. 2nd interviewer told me to implement a deque API. I said I could do it with doubly linked list, but he said yeah this is best theoretical solution but that's not what I want. Took me some time to figure out what he wanted but ended up coding a circular queue. And added tests for it. Overall it seems like they have a question and a very specific answer that they are looking for. They are not testing how you think and solve problems but rather how good you are at guessing what they want. At least it seems like that. Makes for a very poor interview experience. Then, I had to ask the recruiter for feedback after a week. They told me that they were still waiting on the feedback from one interviewer who was out of office. It's been 3 weeks now and I haven't heard anything.. Simply ghosted. Easy interview if you land on what they want exactly. Otherwise, good luck.

Interview Questions
  • 1. Given a string (array of characters), check whether any character has been duplicated. 2. Implement a MyDeque API with fixed size.
