Full stack, but leaning more on front-end.
But honestly, the stacks nowadays are so over complicated that it makes more sense to have front and back specialist. Still cool to have to chance to work with two different technologies.

.Net programmer. I feel like my game dev skills are being wasted in a normal business environment. The work is easy, but I am destined for something more fitting. Currently taking recruiter offers to any game companies. Did stuff with facebook and Blizzard, but the coding tests are those stupid programming puzzles they take from those coding exercise sites. Wouldnt be bad if I didnt have 20 min to solve each.

They werent using fizzbuzz. That stuff is easy. They were using that leetcode site and using hard problems. The medium one they gave me was actually very easy. The hard one was asking for me to implement a large ass function workhouse that would take at least an hour of planning then another to implement. I made sure to at least explain to them what my thought process was as I went through them. And Ive been a game dev before with a professional company. I know about all the efficiency you have to think of. But the fact I still had to do some puzzles despite my large resume tells me something isn't going right in the hiring process these companies are using. I dont seem to be the only one cause my programming peers with just as big resumes showed similar results.

Software Developer, C++ HFT, <2 yrs exp., this is my 2nd job.

I'm always the most junior dev on the team and I really fuckin feel it! I'm such a fucking idiot. I wonder if everybody else also thinks so or if we all go through this. I recently pushed a huge change and broke a bunch of shit on one of the exchanges. I am glad my coworkers/superiors are friendly and don't seem too bothered (and thankfully we are kinda isolated from the users). Also the dude who hired me quit immediately after and then the dude who was supposed to mentor me also quit. Dunno wtf I'm doing desu!

>na, I work for amazon
I just got contacted by an Amazon recruiter.
Do you have any tips for the interviews? It starts with a Hacker rank challenge before, I am a bit rusty with that stuff, so I am just practicing a lot of leet code after work.
Any tips of how to get the job?

Also how is the lay difference between US and Canada? Seems they want me to work in Canada, but it seems that US positions pay 100k more for similar roles.
Is it harder to immigrate to the US than Canada?
I am from a rich EU country, so I don't need to directly compete with the Indians for the visas I think.

>>
>>85227744
>Do you have any tips for the interviews?
I don't have many tips for the technical part of the interview as it is pretty much up to the interviewer. One thing to know though, unlike some of the other tech companies amazon actually has behavior questions in the main interview loop. All of the questions tie back to the leadership principal and mostly come from a question bank. You can probably find every question online. If not, think of examples that tie to each principal.

>Seems they want me to work in Canada
the recruiter is probably focused on Canada but amazon as a whole doesn't really care that much. If you get hired to can can positions pretty easily. I know people who have moved back and forth and also moved back in forth on the same team. US does pay way more in my understanding.

>Is it harder to immigrate to the US than Canada?
I can't speak to the details and it probably depends on what your country is, but my understanding is it way harder to get a work visa in the US. Most of the people I know who have moved from US to Canada was because they had visa issues and couldn't stay any longer.

Because being paid minimum-wage would be much worse.
>>
>>85227820
Do you know how it would go if I do well on the interviews for the Canadian job, but I want to go to the US instead? How would that work out? Would I have to start over, or would passing the interview for one place make it so that I could choose where I want to go to, for example Seattle, NY or wherever instead?
>>
>>85227940
I don't know if international transfers are different (I don't think they are), but for a internal transfer to any openning for the same role you only need to approval of the new manager, even your old manager can't stop it really. Sometimes they will want an informal interview, but most of the time it is just a coffee meeting. I definitely know people who transferred internationally without another formal interview loop.
>>
>>85227940
there might be a time limit on internal transfers though. You should ask the recruiter
>>
>>85228030
But they transferred after working for some time at the first place.
Personally I just want to go to US, make as much money as I can and then go somewhere else. Earning 100k less in Canada seems like a worse deal, as if I would transfer to the US it would take a long time to get the new visa and everything, which would make any transfer harder as well.

But first I need to get through the interviews. Canada seems pretty good as well.

What's the salary range for a software dev with 3-4 years of experience at Amazon? In Canada and/or US? 150k in Canada and 200-250k in US?
>>
>>85228047
I did, the recruiter kind of ignored my question when I asked if I could work in California or Seattle instead.
>>
>>85219290
graduated with a major in networking and I can't find a job still. applied for months. I even have some shitty helpdesk experience from college. what the fuck do I do. I hjave knowledge in linux, sysadmin, windows, administration, helpdesk etc and I can't get an entry level job or even interview.,
>>
>>85228123
I think 150k is right for Canada. The US salary will depend on where those 3-4 years were and how well the interview goes. 200-300 is probably more accurate. I have 4 yoe and make ~290k which is basically top of the SDE2 band and bottom of SDE3
>>
>>85228217
Thanks for the help.
But no advice on how to pass the interviews? Just do well on the technical challenge and don't forget the Amazon leadership stuff?

I guess I will try and reach out to FB and MS to get some competing offers if possible. Maybe they will send me to US.

>>85228251
>But no advice on how to pass the interviews?
Sorry, I got nothing better than what is already online. Interviewers are given an area to probe on (like system design, data structures and algorithms, etc) and are left to their own devices to make questions. The bar and difficulty varies pretty wildly because of that. You will definitely have a system design section for 3-4 years of experience.

When the definition of "competitive" pay changes, it only changes for external hires. Companies have no incentive to sudden give all of the existing employees bonuses. I got promoted and am at the bottom of a salary band that new hires who have less experience and don't know how things work at the company make way more. Combine that with the fact that other companies have started paying more in general
>>
>>85228752
Why not move to another company and then go back a year later for a great salary bump? I guess having to do the interview process again might not make it guaranteed that you get accepted back into your old company?

>>85229463
I already make 300k, have no student loans, and own my home (still have a mortgage). The extra 100-200k/yr sounds really nice, but I am not sure my quality of life would really change all that much with more money. On the other hand I love my job and have a great work life balance. The risk of taking a job I might like less, more stress, and get to spend less time with my family outweighs the financial gain. Especially when you consider that I am at the bottom of my salary band. My salary will probably catch up in a year or two. There is also the hit to career progression. I am new enough to my level that I probably wouldn't be able to swing an up level if I were to leave and boomerang back. That means I am potentially pausing my career progression by 1-2 years.

IT was a crock of shit all along but this job gave me a 3-day weekend and no-questions-asked WFH, so I just shut up and stomach the endless horde of retarded callers we get.

Whether you're in a office or factory, shit is retarded rn and management is either non-existent or filled with air thieves. I'm leaving tech at some point but I can't narrow down what I'll try my hand at. Every workplace I've sampled throughout the pandemic has been plagued with bullshit conditions and management, and I don't see that changing afterwards. The only silver lining is that staff shortages have stomped on the balls of every major company in the country right now, and turnover is shattering records. Pretty soon the wagie riots are gonna manifest.

NEET
Have sysadminned for various causes (for free) for years, have had code patches accepted in multiple OSes, and haven't gotten my first job.
Everyone wants a bachelor's degree (master's preferred :) ) and three years of experience to even become the most junior sysadmin or codemonkey. Since I can't afford to go to college, I will likely never get a tech job.
>>
>>85238396
It kinda does, but if you are willing to learn/make yourself take on some projects.
I work as a helpdesk atm, and boy is it hell. I have to deal daily with the most retard construction workers high school dropouts you gotta find. They can't even properly open Windows start menu if that tells you something.
On the other hand I have hands on time with my company tech and I'm allways trying something new for the development department, wich is nice and I someday hope to join.
Until then it's a office hellhole job.
>>
>>85240470
Damn I envy you bro, I want to start my own VFX company, and knowing most sysadmin and IT shit myself, I can confidently say I'll probably just set up the render server, license server and local storage array myself. Being an Cinema bachelor myself it mixes the 2 things I love the most.

what's the hourly for that call centre? that sounds like crazy money desu, even if you were working 38hr weeks (which i'm guess you're not if you're studying)
making $31/h in a warehouse rn, hopefully going back to uni next month but i need to find another job that works with school
my current plan is forklift operator 2-10pm but i know that will be shithouse, and it's still only $35/h

I act as a pseudo product manager though since our product team is fucking incompetent.

Cash comp is only in $115k range, but it's comfy WFH with unlimited PTO (and encouraged, I just took almost a month kek), with lots of benefits like company phone, paid internet, and weekly meals.

Getting a little bit in terms of options. It's still private so they can't do anything, but CMV is like ~70kish.

ah so you'd like for me to become an atheist faggot and worship niggers instead i see. well well, my dear chap, that won't happen no matter how much we agree on the shortcomings of our capitalist systems. no indeed for it was the same enlightened advocates of democracy that gave us this free market, the ones advocating the rule of the nigger now and abandonment of traditional values. i suggest you stop visiting reddit for the remainder of this year. instead, the energy you spend hatescrolling through repetitive twitter screenshots denouncing the same villains over and over again should be used in your erudition. read Marx if you think his alternative is better. see if you can refute his critiques. don't advocate a platform owned by a company that'll eventually go public in order to make more money from a system you and those 1.6m "Idlers" claim to hate. the mere idea of voting on posts, disgusting!

yeah i'm in aussie dollars as well
most forklift positions are $35-$36 an hour if its an afternoon shift
considering i could be making $31/h to take phone calls and not lift heavy shift i'm in the wrong field, i just don't have any customer service experience
anyway, best of luck w/ uni anon, you've got far more integrity working your way through than all the "international students" buying a degree with CCP blood money
