Tech interview questions

My growing collection of problems for engineers preparing for a technical interview at Google, Facebook, Microsoft, or Amazons of the world:

Basis Ventures

Successful MBA-oriented founders who validate their business model with a prototype and traction are shocked when hitting the wall. The product dies right when the market finally accepts it; the contractors start acting flakey; and the investors are suddenly unwilling to invest in tech resources right when they're needed.

Traction seems to kill a startup before it's reborn.

The best founders, those who validate cheaply, are surprised the most to find out what investors already know: A single invested tech cofounder can replace an entire team of engineering contractors and build a scalable version of their product faster, cheaper and with more versatility than the original. Tech partners are different from engineers: they put their skin in the game.

When the customer complaints start pouring in at 4am and the outsourced team is unresponsive, this point finally sinks in: "I need a tech co-founder, and this company needs a technical leader."
