Why cracking tech interviews at Tier 1 companies is really tough


  • Are tested on core CS Data Structures and Algorithms rather than your own domain
  • Have to come up with solutions to complex problems in a short span of time
  • Are asked to articulate your assumptions, your decisions, and your solutions
  • Have to code on a whiteboard, an unfamiliar coding platform, on a sheet of paper or a shared doc
  • Have to excel on the behavioral questions in addition to the coding questions

Each instructor-led session was packed with information and there were lots of problems to practice. The course was intense, but it was a great use of my time.

Interview Kickstart is like a fitness coach which guides to achieve your dream job. It can help you identify your weak points and also suggest steps to improve them.

The classes, workshops, quizzes, practice problems, and mock interviews provided me with the knowledge, tools, and the feedback that I was missing. Interview Kickstart showed me how to prepare for success.

I can't think of a better recipe for tech interview success than combining the Interview Kickstart program with hard work. The program made my prep much more effective and eliminated surprises from the interview process.

IK helped me craft an effective interview strategy around problem scoping, deciding tradeoffs and coding fluency. Their mock interviews helped me benchmark my performance. I got offers from Amazon and Facebook!

IK provides a nice, structured way to prepare for interviews while having a full-time job. Mock interviews helped me get better and the problem sets alleviated the need for me to source problems externally.

Program Fee

Our students realize that the program fee is not an expense but an exceptionally rewarding investment. With many students securing offers for lucrative positions at top tech companies, returns on this investment can range between 10 to 40 times within the first year. 

Lee Wang, a student who completed this program and landed an offer from a FAANG company, had this to say in a review on Quora -

“The program cost is nothing if you are able to take your career to the next level. For me, the program was worth every single penny.”

Suraj M. who got offers from multiple FAANG+ companies, mentioned this in his Yelp review:

“My initial investment was paid back many times over just by my sign-on bonus at the new company that I will be joining.”

We have different pricing options depending on students’ needs. We also a number of flexible payment options to suit your budget. So the best way to learn about the same is to sign-up for a free pre-enrolment webinar with one of our founders.
