Product Design Engineer @ Apple


“Hardware FYI was an amazing resource that taught me crucial information I wasn’t taught in class. Consumer product design is a niche industry where knowledge of GD&T, tolerance stacks, and high-volume manufacturing process is valuable, and I was able to build a strong understanding of these subjects through studying the questions and detailed solutions on Hardware.FYI. Couldn’t have gotten my job without it!"

Ex-Tesla & Formlabs


Hardware FYI is the Leetcode for mechanical engineers. Until my friend told me about hardware.fyi I didn’t even realize that there were recurring interview questions that companies like Apple and Tesla would ask mechanical engineers/product designers. Any competitive/high paying engineering company is going to grill you on technicals in interviews and this is one of the few resources that helped me prepare for my interviews at Formlabs, Apple and Tesla. I highly recommend checking out this database which is more comprehensive and time efficient than scraping for questions on glassdoor

Product Design Engineer at Apple


Hardware FYI was absolutely pivotal in kickstarting my career! It helped me build lots of confidence for technical interviews, especially when I was starting out with my first few jobs searches and didn’t know what to expect. I couldn’t have landed my job at Apple without it. It’s a super rich resource and I look through it every time I prep for an interview now. Highly recommend to anyone out there trying to make an impression!

I highly recommend Hardware FYI to any engineer seeking to hone their interview abilities. Hardware FYI played a significant role in helping me secure dream jobs at prestigious companies – with such an accessible resource at my disposal, moving forward I feel fully confident for any interview challenge that comes my way!
