can a D.E. shaw colleague clear some of my queries regarding an upcoming interview for the opening of SMT (equities).

I've received an interview call via linkedin from DE Shaw India for the position of Senior Member Technical/ Senior Data Engineer (Equities team).

I do know Python, though am more proficient in SQL, can you please guide me on how to optimise my preparation?

Have an interview coming up (experienced hire, senior associate, in the automotive & A&D sector)

Anyone have any experiences about project types, how S& stand apart, etc? Also

I'm coming from Deloitte (A&D engineer previously), where i had enjoyed/been most productive in strategy assessment projects... Part of why I'm going for S& before PwC.

Thank you!
