I had a similar call couple of weeks ago. It was just a normal conversation around current and previous experience. I’d ask question and understand the comp structure since it’s little confusing 70/30 split

I just got an offer from Facebook. I can choose either a SWE or a SWE, ML role.

Does anyone know how much modeling is expected in a SWE, ML position at Facebook? I'm thinking this isn't the right position if I want to fully avoid ML modeling, and that I should go in as a generic SWE. What do you think? Thanks!
