I was interviewed with the slice for the backend developed position. I will be sharing my interview experience and some of the questions I was asked in the interview.
First of all, I was introduced to this job opportunity from one of the recruitment firms. They approached me and find my profile matching the job opportunity for the SDE-3 role. This requirement was for the experienced backend developer. After having an initial discussion over the call, she set up the interview with Slice.
This interview was scheduled for an hour. This round we will be covering Data Structures and Algorithms The interviewer introduced himself after that I introduced myself. After having some initial discussion, he shared the hacker rank link for the coding test.
He asked me to write a program to implement the LRU (Least Recently Used) cache mechanism.
Before writing actual code, explain the algorithm and how you are going to implement it. While I was explaining it, he asked me questions about the complexity of the algorithm for reading and adding a new element in the LRU cache.
Make sure your solution and approach should be optimistic i.e. you should be able to read and add a new element in LRU cache with
O(1) time complexity.
Note: You don’t need to execute your code. But, it is always good to write neat and clean code.
Later, I just asked him a couple of questions about the project or the team I may work for, if I get the opportunity to work in 2022.
I’m still waiting for the update about my first interview. I will share further interview round details later.
If you have any doubt, you can ask me in the comment section.
