Good writeup.
It surprises me how freely you can talk about internal processes and how you worked in your previous company. A lot of companies lets you sign a contract to not tell anyone about the work there even after quitting.

Absolutely!
One of the cultural pillars of Razorpay is "Transparency"

Same goes for my previous company at timeless.co too they were very open about their processes too.

Let me tell you about the truth about coding round second round ,
First of all it completely depends upon who is taking your interview , what exactly happens is they will give you hints only if you ask and feel stuck , isnt like friendly ( already rejected if you dont ) , and once they give you hint you are already rejected bcause you took help ,

Totaly disagree with : Yes I did, but the cool thing about this interview is that they aren't looking for solid solutions from you

Huh interesting viewpoint.

and once they give you hint you are already rejected bcause you took help ,

really? I asked for hints..... I got the offer.. how so?

I'm totally speaking from my experience and there is no false information in the blog... I could not provide a solution. but I did present alternative ideas.

That's so not true. They see how you think and how well you grasp the hints that they give. And they are not looking for solid solutions at all, it's all about testing your ability to think and find a solution.

Woah, this was so insightful man, it's almost like you walked us through the interviews yourself. Good luck on your new role :))

Also, didn't know you had to rewrite that Redux code for Bugvilla, what problems were you facing? What it had to do with optimistic updates? Can you elaborate?

This was definitely a great read. I would love to know the questions that were asked in the interview related to web and FE.

Sorry but those are confidential, there are limited numbers of questions prepared for the candidates, questions are carefully picked to measure candidates skills, if I disclose them people will just mug up answers and would not show any problem solving skills.

My initial draft has the problem statements but after speaking with senior engineers they recommend not to disclose questions.

So how did you negotiate your salary? It would be better to also add that part to the blog, as many people lack the experience and skills in negotiation as a developer.
