    Current Employee - Software Engineering Intern in Palo Alto, CA

    I have been working at A9.com full-time for less than a 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)

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at A9.com.

    Interview Details

    Interview was on campus visit by A9. It was part of University of Waterloo co-op process, so the process may vary for others. Had one 45 minute interview and received the offer.

    Was asked extensively about hash tables, and had to solve various problems involving them. Recommend how to compress data into bits. Was asked in detail about my OS project.
