    Current Employee - Software Engineering Intern in Palo Alto, CA

    I have been working at A9.com full-time (less than an year)


    - Work is really good and challenging. Projects involving distributed systems, AWS, machine learning, ad technology, graphics (visual search team)
    - Work with Amazon infrastructure and internal tools
    - Coworkers are very knowledgeable and professional
    - Great location, right beside Caltrain in Palo Alto, so you can live anywhere in Bay Area and commute
    - Decent office space, its not open office like most tech companies, which I preferred
    - Good compensation, better than amazon


    - Not enough perks compared to other tech companies
    - Office space is too crammed, only 2 buildings near each other in Palo Alto, sharing one office room with 3-4 people
    - Frugality of Amazon (less frugal though, you get cereal pop etc)

    Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at A9.com.

    Interview Details

    This is a pretty disorganized company. I dealt with multiple people (recruiters included) and none of them was able to give me a positive impression about the company.

    The senior engineer who did my phone screen was not very interested in his work and clearly was frustrated. I cleared phone screen and talked with hiring manager onsite. I believe that the interview went well but after that the line went silent. I pinged the recruiter on status and he said he has not been able to get in touch with manager ( please pick up the phone and call the person). Anyway I had couple of other offers of which I accepted one. This was an easy discard for me given the whole process was highly unprofessional.
