complex statistical concepts” to a regular person. I am great with advanced SQL scripting and building complex tableau workbooks but haven’t done anything really beyond basic descriptive statistics. No regression models or anything like that. Not enough to interpret output anyways. Should i pull out of the interview or go in and embarrass myself?

Those guys don’t know much either. They will ask you how to explain to a non technical client what a p-value or what a confidence interval is and what it means for interpreting their results. There is also some academic paper floating on the Internet co-authored by Facebook people on measuring incremental performance of ad campaigns. They ask about that too

Prep for it and go and give the interview. You don't have anything to lose. If you bomb it, u still have your current job. If you do well, you may move along to the next step. Who knows?
