Hi, I'm Parker. I started Interview Cake after my life-changing experience helping my friend Alice.
Alice had fallen on hard times. She had lost her apartment and was running out of money. She was just finishing her coursework at a coding boot camp, hoping a job in tech could turn her life around.
Alice was kicking butt at coding, but to land her dream job she needed to kick butt at coding interviews. That meant having a rock-solid foundation in algorithms, data structures, big O notation, and of course problem solving.
So we got to work running practice problems, drilling her weak points in algorithms and data structures, and focusing on how to arrive at the answers, not just what the answers were.
She struggled a lot at first. But after just 3 days (a long weekend) of focused practice, she was ready.
Alice ended up landing a job at Facebook. Overnight she went from crashing on my couch to making more money than I ever have.
Seeing Alice's life turn around was amazing. I was hooked. Since then I've taught hundreds of candidates in person, and hundreds of thousands online.
Through years of testing and tweaking, I've developed a curriculum that works. Beyond the foundations of data structures and algorithms, we learn how to begin breaking down a new problem and how to keep moving even when you're stuck.
I want everyone to have the same kind of opportunity to land their dream job that Alice had.
Thanks for checking out Interview Cake, and best of luck with your interviews. Let me know if I can help in any way.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have any stats on whether or not the service works?
Sure. Since launching our money-back guarantee we've had thousands of people purchase access to full questions on Interview Cake. Less than 2% of those people have been unsatisfied and asked for their money back. Think about that: 98% of people knew that they could get a full refund just by asking, and they chose not to. Chances are you'll also be a member of that 98%, but on the off chance you're in the 2% who end up unsatisfied...well, you'll get your money back.
Is the money-back guarantee real?
Yes. If you're unsatisfied for any reason, including that you simply didn't pass your interviews, just email me and I'll give you a full refund. You should only pay if Interview Cake works.
Do you have Google/Facebook/
Yes, we hear about our questions being asked at those companies all the time. But the truth is there's no fundamental difference between a Google question and a Microsoft question, and often the question you get asked has more to do with your individual interviewer than the company.
I've never studied Comp Sci. Is Interview Cake too advanced for me?
The original inspiration for Interview Cake came from helping a friend who learned how to program at a 10-week coding boot camp, so we've always had self-taught and bootcamp-taught engineers in mind (as well as CS majors) while building our content. Now, our curriculum might sometimes feel like a whirlwind, and that's by design—we teach with problems (rather than boring readings or lectures), so lots of concepts are supposed to feel new at first. You'll find that it starts coming together faster than you'd think! The only background you need is our primer on Big O notation.
Can't I get this stuff for free?
If you're looking for a question database to slog through, there are plenty of free ones out there. But if you want a carefully-curated, problem-based walk through the core strategies you need to quickly answer any coding interview question...well, you're in the right place. Interview Cake is designed to 1) make you really good at interviews as quickly as possible and 2) never leave you behind by failing to explain something.
Is it really worth the money?
Think about how much it'll cost not to ace your coding interviews. You could easily be leaving $10k, $20k, $30k+ on the table. The better you perform in the interview, the more money companies will throw at you to try to snatch you up. For better or for worse, interview performance is their primary metric of your worth. Plus, spending the next 2, 5, 10+ years working your dream job...hard to put a price tag on that.
What does upgrading get me?
You'll get immediate full access to our carefully-tailored interview questions. Access to full questions is the only feature that's paywalled, though occasionally we'll ask upgraded users for help testing new beta features.
What topics are covered?
All the core data structures (arrays, linked lists, queues, stacks, hash maps), some advanced data structures (tries), common algorithm types (greedy, brute force, dynamic programming), and some pesky bits of math and trivia that can really throw you off (probability, shuffling, combinatorics, common arithmetic series').
