Wayfair Software Engineer Interview
I recently went through a Wayfair interview and wanted to contribute the questions I faced which can be helpful to others who are preparing.
Note: Wayfair is a large company and your interview panel may be completely different since you might be interviewed for a different team. For the reference I was interviewed for their Supply chain and Engineering Team aka Transportation team.
