Our coaches are system design interview experts. Our platform is easy to use.
Step 1 - Purchase your mock interview coaching sessions.
You can use your mock interview sessions with a single coach, or spread them across multiple
coaches. All coaches have been vetted by our team. They have extensive interviewing
experience and a passion for making others successful.
How many mock interview coaching sessions
would you like to purchase?
Sessions can be scheduled with any coach once purchased.
Step 2 -
Schedule your mock interviews with any coach.
For each mock interview, pick a coach, and select a time in their calendar. Coaches only need
24h notice to be booked. So, if you purchase today you could start as early as tomorrow.
Step 3 - Practice a mock interview for 45mins, and get feedback for 15mins.
Each session lasts 1h. At the time of the session, you’ll login to a Zoom call
to meet your coach. They’ll confirm the objectives of the session with you, give
you a mock interview (45mins), followed by feedback (15mins). You’ll be in touch with
your coach over email before and after the session so you can ask any questions you have.
Step 4 - Get an offer!
Interviewing is hard and there are usually lots of great candidates going for each role. Mock interview coaching is a small investment (e.g. ~$600) that can make a huge difference to your annual income (e.g. ~$200,000+) and career trajectory.
Where can I practice system design interview questions?
You’ll need to do plenty of practice answering system design interview questions, both on your own and with other people to get useful feedback. To practice on your own, work through the most common system design questions in our system design interview questions article.
Once you’re confident answering system design questions on your own, you’ll want to test yourself in an interview situation - talking someone through your answer as you go, and responding to any follow up questions that dig deeper into your design.
If you know someone who has experience of running system design interviews, that’s great. If not, just book one of the mock interview coaches here on our platform.
How do you answer system design questions?
Answering system design questions requires a structured approach. Our recommended method can be boiled down into 4 main steps:
Ask clarifying questions
Drill down on your design
Bring it all together
Keep in mind that interviewers generally want to see your high-level design within the first 20 minutes of the round. Most system design interviews last for 45-60 minutes, which means that you’ve got to figure out how to allocate your time wisely.
Yes, once you’ve purchased your mock interview sessions you can schedule them with any coach on our team.
Can I get a refund for unused sessions?
Yes, unused mock interview sessions can be refunded within 60 days of getting purchased. After 60 days the sessions cannot be refunded anymore, but you can still use them at any point in the future.
If you do get a refund it will be corrected for the discount you initially got. As an example, imagine you have purchased 10 sessions, and paid 10 x $120 = $1,200. If you end up only using 5 sessions, we will refund you the difference between what you have paid ($1,200), and what you would have paid had you purchased 5 sessions (5 x $135 = $675). So in this specific example we would refund: $1,200 - $675 = $525.
Is there a time limit to use the mock interview sessions?
There is no time limit to use the mock interview sessions. You can purchase them now and use them whenever you like
How are sessions scheduled?
Once you've purchased your sessions you'll have access to our mock interview scheduling system. You'll be able to pick a coach and select an available time slot in their calendar. Coaches require 24h notice for the sessions. So if you purchase today you could start with your first session as early as tomorrow. When you book a coach you'll also be able to let them know what you'd like to focus on for your session (e.g. behavioral questions) and they'll be able to help with that.
What is included in the mock interview session?
Your mock interview session is tailored to you. Your coach will work with you in advance of the session to decide what you will cover during the hour. Most of the candidates who work with us use this time to do a full mock interview but you could use it instead as an hour of coaching and advice.
When booking a coach you’ll be given the opportunity to specify what companies you’re interviewing with (e.g. Google, Amazon, Meta, etc.) and what question types you would like to focus on. If you don’t know the answer to these questions yet that’s completely fine – your coach will be here to guide you.
What's your cancellation, "no show" and rescheduling policy?
Mock interview sessions can be canceled and rescheduled for free by giving us more than 24h notice. In other words, if you decide you don't need the session anymore and tell us more than 24h in advance it will be eligible for a refund as an "unused" session. Or if you decide that you want to do the session at another time and tell us more than 24h in advance we will reschedule it for free.
If you fail to attend a mock interview session, or are more than 15mins late, the session will be considered a "no show" and it will count as having been used.
How does your 100% satisfaction guarantee work?
If you aren’t satisfied with one of your mock interview sessions for any reason, get in touch with us within 24h of the end of your session and you’ll be eligible for a refund. We refund up to 1 coaching session per user.
