What are the most exciting companies in tech that are tackling climate change, if there are any, and other pressing issues? Etsy is fine, but it's not exactly saving humanity from itself. Maybe I'm just jaded with tech 😅

    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Etsy (United States) in Dec 2021


    The whole process took about one month after the recruiter got in touch. There were 2 rounds: the first one was a no-coding technical interview mocking a real-life system with data structures, and the second one was a paired coding session focused on debugging an existing simple web app & a behavioral interview. Definitely a very interesting and unique experience!

What’s an engineer to do when they have a hundred million rows of data to update? As the saying goes, “One does not simply Product.update_all(“rate_new = rate_old”).” In this most recent Reverb Fretboards & Motherboards blog post, our colleague and Infrastructure Engineer Carl Thuringer explains the efforts he and his team made to more effectively perform several large backfills of this style in a hands-off, throttled, and safe way using Sidekiq. Although the solution continues to be a work in progress, the approach will resonate with many fellow engineers.
