    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Snowflake (United States) in Jun 2020

    Interview

    1. Recruiter Call
    2. HM Call
    3. Initial Phone Screen (coding + system knowledge)
    4. Virtual Onsite (4 rounds, coding + more linux systems deep dive)

    The whole process was quite well organized and the recruiter and hiring manager were very responsive throughout. Each round was scheduled about a week apart as that fit with my schedule. I was initially worried about not being able to properly gauge prospective teammates and culture through online interviews, but that can't really be helped. The interviewers were friendly otherwise.
    Only thing I would have liked better was not scheduling a coding round at the very end, by which time one is usually already tired from hours of speaking to previous interviewers. Hiring committee did take my feedback for that after.

    Coding Rounds were easy-medium LC (log parsing with concurrency, scale questions), Linux, Networking, containerization questions
