My company is hiring right now and I would love you share some referrals with you all!

I’ll answer all reasonable and non confidential questions here. DM if you’re interested to get started (Bonus for me and better hiring odds for you)

Here are some of the highlights about the company:

* WFH or in office (Bay area and North Carolina with a few we work offices around the world)
* Non political environment (For real. Not lip service)
* Flat Netflix style engineering department (Everyone is a senior engineer)
* Experienced engineers only
* Relatively few meetings. lots off time to code
* impactful product (All military Branches; most the banks; chunk of the fortune companies)
* lot’s of great learning opportunities (I have picked up a lot of security knowledge)
* Awesome teammates
* Best code quality I’ve seen. management really cares about great code
* Great Executive leadership (my eye’s never roll when I hear them speak)
* Amazing compensation
* profitable company (value has more than doubled in last two years
* FAANG quality TC (I would say better in most cases)
* RSUs instead of options (Valuation over 6 Billion, with a lot of room to grow)

TL; DR best company of my career. former FAANG and woked at a few start ups before this

We have another role call a technically account manager (TAM) that is different than most companies. it’s roughly split between IT and people skills, with most having some engineer experience. Also well paying. It is a great role for peope who want to stay technical, but want to flex non tech skills as well.

We are hiring for various roles (Sales, technical writing, etc...) that I can recruit for. I know the most about the engineering and TAMs roles though.

TC 390k

      That’s the part of the compensation of that has the most variation, so very hard to say.

      Personality, my RSUs were worth about 50-60k a year in comp at the time of offer

      A lot of JS for sure, but it’s a quite a bit more diverse than that. I’ll break it down.

      Endpoint/Client code: mostly python, with some legacy bash and vbscript.
      Tanium API and main server code (Highly locked down) : C++
      Product module server code (code directly accessible by customers. Consumes data from the platform API and does product specific stuff with it) Mostly Node.js
      Product front end code: Mostly react. Currently porting some angular code over
      Various tools, middleware, libraries: golang

      All the roles are posted on the career page. However, DM me with the role you want. Following the formal process benefits us both over a generic application

    Not clear from your post, you are hiring SWEs, right? How are the interviews?

      I am an SWE but we are hiring many different roles! Typical FAANG style: some technical phone screens then an on site loop. Probably more culture and communication checking than most FAANG interviews though.

      That’s for SWE anyway. It’s quite different for TAMs and other roles

      One thing I really liked is even the whiteboard interviews felt highly collaborative; it didn’t feel like they were playing stump the chump and trying to trip me up.

    Where is your Bay Area office? Do many engineers work there, or are they mostly remote?

      East bay (Emeryville) and I’d say it’s roughly split even. They do try to make the team uniform though (Mostly onsite or mostly remote)
