Difficulty Level – Medium

Solution –

        DENSE_RANK() OVER(PARTITION BY p.project_id ORDER BY e.experience_years DESC) as rnk
    FROM project as p JOIN employee as e
    ON p.employee_id = e.employee_id
    ) x
WHERE rnk = 1

This is another variation of this problem that we solved previously. But here we have to first partition the data in the DENSE_RANK window function before finding the most experienced employees as we are asked to find so for every project.
