Amazon Interview Experience for SDE-1 | 1 Year Experienced


Applied through employee referral. Got an email for giving coding test within couple of days 

Round 1(Coding Round):

  1. First question was similar to https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-k-closest-points-to-the-origin/
  2. Given an array of integers, find number of pairs of elements who have sum less than value “K”. 

Tip: Solve coding round questions using brute-force solution.

In a couple of days, got a call for scheduling interview rounds.

Round 2(Technical Interview 1): Taken by Senior SDE with 3-4 years experience. 

  1. Questions on current work and leadership principles.
  2. Find the smallest value in array larger than a given value X. (Discussed Heap solution as well as Sorting + Binary Search solution, asked to code either of the two from scratch (implement heap data structure or merge-sort/quick-sort) as both will have worst case of O(nlogn) ) 

Round 3(Technical Interview 2): Taken by SDE II with 2+ years experience.

  1. Questions of current work and tech stack currently working on.
  2. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/sort-linked-list-already-sorted-absolute-values/
  3. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/sliding-window-maximum-maximum-of-all-subarrays-of-size-k/

After this round, received a mail for further rounds

Round 4(Hiring Manager):

  1. Detailed discussion around current work, technologies worked on, reasons to look for change and other managerial based questions.
  2. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/snake-ladder-problem-2/ 

(Initially started solving using DFS by finding all paths but after discussion, landed on BFS solution)
