Interview Question

Backend Developer Interview London, England

System Design stage: An ambiguous objective, in my case

  - searching from a web browser and I had to design a back end system for it

Interview Answer

1 Answer


The feedback was that I failed this stage.
I wasn't familiar with this kind of interview (apparently popular at Google/Facebook) and wasn't sure which way to take it - What I should have done was to narrow down the objective and dive in to the detail of system implementation like calculating requests/s, RAM and cache sizing, defining interfaces. This I was capable of but didn't do. Hence failed
