    Enterprise Business Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Hiring process was fast; initial phone screening with the recruiter, a phone interview with an Account Executive, then onsite interviews.

    I wasn't very happy with the company I was with, so I was really doing my due diligence in researching companies but also applying to a good amount of places. So I had another offer by the time CipherCloud extended me one. They moved fast because they knew I was considering other opportunities.

    Director, Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CipherCloud in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had initial screening with recruiter via phone. On site interviews with a total of 9 people over three visits. The last interview was a mock presentation to a small team. Solid recruiter with a great sense of urgency made a huge difference. My impression from the interviewers was that they had some very good people without the typical accompanying technorati superiority complex.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult component of the interview was doing a presentation to a cross functional team and then a round of Q&A on the topic.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Had identical offer from another top 20 pre-ipo company which validated their being in-line with industry. Was disappointed with visibility into valuation. The company's multi-cloud vision and the caliber of individuals I met during the process made the difference.
