Ian Hwang

Software Engineer

I attended IK and I've got a lot of knowledge that helped me get into Microsoft. Their Curriculum (algorithms and data structures) is organized very well and explanations are so helpful. And mock interviews and the feedback helped me a lot. It was worth it!

Neetika Srivastava

I really like how the program is structured and how it caters to different domains. It is really helpful. The patterns that they teach you at Interview Kickstart are really useful because you can apply those patterns to any new problem. Knowing those patterns, you can solve basically any question because you can relate it to problems you have already solved, which gives you confidence.

Chun Wu

Senior Software Engineer
Placed at:
I joined iK after stumbling across it while reviewing some other interview prep materials after doing poorly in an interview at Linkedin. I knew that doing well in these interviews would require dedication and investment of my time - but with so many resources online I didn't have structure. This is what the IK platform provided me.

Shrey Shrivastava

The Interview Kickstart course is very structured and informative. They teach you about DS and algo fundamentals very thoroughly and also prepare you for the software engineering interview. I really like the live classes by FAANG engineers, and the homework and tests definitely help you toprepare for a real interview. If you have been looking for a bootcamp that prepares you for software engineering interviews, I would say this is definitely the right place to do it.

Sridhar Gandham

Senior Software Engineer
Placed at:
My experience at IK was extremely positive. I was preparing for FAANG companies using the standard techniques that you find on the internet. When I started preparing, there was no structure to the madness. For example, a simple quicksort can be implemented in multiple ways. So solving a medium problem would take me about 30 minutes. The biggest benefit that I got from IK was a clear, structured way of solving problems. After IK, I could solve medium problems in 10 minutes!

Ibrahim Demidrogen

Software Engineer
Placed at:
IK is super helpful in cementing a lot of the basics and developing a deeper understanding of the core concepts that are essential to the interview process at any FAANG company. The foundation material is dense, but it is discussed at a swift pace. Omkar's instructional videos are very detailed and break down the essentials into small digestible components. The mock interview sessions are super helpful, especially for those who need additional guidance and help with defining their shortcomings.

Akriti Bhatt

Software Engineer
Placed at:
Interview Kickstart is a great platform to perfect your basics and get a deep understanding of algorithms. These sessions helped me crack Google and several other companies.
Having struggled for a while to understand what I was doing wrong in interviews and how to behave during an interview, I took the help of 1-1 interview sessions with the mentors and the guidance provided by them helped me understand the problem with my approach.

What to Expect at Front-end Engineer Interviews

Front-end interviews typically test your coding abilities, UI programming skills, knowledge of Front-end frameworks and tools, and ability to build scalable interfaces for websites and applications.
While the interview process is similar at top companies, comprising an initial recruiter screen, the technical screen, and the on-site interview, there can be subtle differences in the number of rounds based on the company in question and seniority associated with the role.
Let’s look at what the Front-end interview process looks like in general.
1
Recruiter phone screen
A 15- to 30-minute HR recruiter call to check your background, experience, and skills. The aim of this round is to find if you’re the right fit for the role.
2
Technical screening
This interview round is an online screening round which is usually 45 mins to 1 hour long. You will be asked a few behavioral questions and coding [DSA] problems during the technical screening round.
3
On-site round
The On-site interview involves four to five rounds in total, with dedicated rounds for coding, Front-end system design, Front-end domain concepts, and behavioral psychology. The on-site interview includes the following rounds/interviews:
  • Coding interviews (x2)
  • Design interview
  • Architecture interview
  • Career and behavioral interview

Front-end Interview Questions

The Front-end interview typically includes coding, design, and UI programming questions. Front-end interview questions include behavioral and leadership-based questions in the on-site interview.
