Started out with a Case Interviewer Cost Benefit scenario from a Tech Lead, that I was somewhat unprepared for. Basically it's a word math question that I haven't had to deal with for 30 years, especially while someone is standing over your shoulder, but oddly Capital One base their hireling on this. Then two interviewers asked good relevant experience questions followed by an interviewer that asked similar job fit questions. I thought I nailed all the experience questions. I asked them what are they really looking for in a SM that they're not getting right now. The interviewer replied experienced leadership. Something I have more than enough of.
