Hey everyone,

Over the last few months I've been helping my friends prepare for interviews at FAANG, since I was fortunate enough to receive offers when I applied myself a few years ago.

They've found my mocks really helpful in improving their technique, but when it comes to finding more people to do interviews with online they've really struggled — people they're partnered up with on existing platforms are often at a completely different level and can't test them like a real interviewer would.

So I decided to build something to help! https://mockme.io

The key idea with mockme is that instead of being matched with someone randomly, we use your LeetCode rating, previous experience (verified by LinkedIn) and other info to find a partner who can challenge you as a real interviewer would.

Would love to hear your thoughts, feedback, questions or any other comments :) Oh — and signup if you'd like to join the beta!

    Codeforces is a site meant for competitive programming and not preparing for tech interviews. There are sites like leetcode and interviewbit for that.

    Also the person who has written this post has used a throwaway account and there is no way of verifyng their claims ( "I was fortunate enough to receive offers when I applied myself a few years ago." ).

      Hey everyone, sorry this post didn't come across well. I decided to post it here because after speaking to a few friends, I learnt that they used CodeForces to help them prepare for technical interviews. My thinking was that others would also be preparing, and so my new platform would be helpful to them too, so thought it a good idea to share.

      I created a new account as I couldn't log into my old one. But regardless, if you want more info about me, here's my LinkedIn and Twitter :)
