Rimma, Development Team Leader

What is your role?

I'm the Android applications team leader. My team is responsible for the UI and the utility features of AVG AntiVirus for Android, as well as for developing standalone Android applications.

What is the best thing about working here?

For me, it's the combination of a warm family atmosphere, good team work and the challenges and the variety of the projects we are working on.

Why did you decided to join AVG?

I’d heard about AVG long before I started working here. I knew that this was a big, stable company with strong vision and products. Besides that, during the interview I received a very positive impression about my future boss and the good atmosphere in the office, along with an interesting development job for an Android security application. I knew immediately that this was the place I wanted to be! I’ve never had any second thoughts about my decision.

What makes your work interesting?

Our product portfolio is constantly growing, which allows me and other members of my team to work on different projects all the time, where we can keep learning, gaining experience, expressing ourselves, and influencing the results.



Jakub, Principal User Researcher

What is your role?

My role is to involve customers in the process of designing our products and services. This is the only bullet-proof way to make sure our products are appealing, intuitive and easy to use for them. We spend lots of time with customers in order to understand their digital lives and needs to get inspiration for the creation of new products.

Throughout the whole design process, we validate our designs with customers to make sure we’re doing the right thing for them.

What is the best thing about working here?

The people! I like the people here, both as friends and professionals. There are plenty of talented people at AVG collaborating on shared goals. It’s extremely motivating to be part of it.

What would you say to someone thinking of joining us?

AVG is a great place to be. You have a chance to join a successful, growing and stable company. I like the way AVG cares about the satisfaction and professional development of its employees. One more thing: if you are not a team player and if the customer is not in the center of your thinking, AVG is probably not the right choice for you.

What makes your work interesting?

Meeting customers from diverse cultures, especially when surveying them directly at their homes; supplying our designers and product managers with inspiration coming from insights into customers’ lives; and being part of the creative process when new products and designs are arising.

 


Jana, Training Supervisor


undefined

What is your role?

I’m in charge of AVG’s Training Team. We ensure the high quality of our customer support by providing comprehensive, up-to-date training to our agents.

What do you enjoy most about working at AVG?

There are many things, but the thing I enjoy the most is the creative and friendly atmosphere in my team. It’s a real pleasure to see the outcomes of our professional cooperation.

How have you developed yourself at AVG?

Personal development is an important part of everyone’s work experience. Over these five years I’ve worked for AVG, the development I value the most is my improved ability to adapt to rapidly changing requirements and different cultures.

What challenges do you face at AVG?

The biggest challenge we face is the need to maximize the training’s added value for our agents. That requires making it lean, targeted, entertaining, and easy to apply in practice—all at the same time.


Our company values at AVG

What we do is important, and how we do it is more important still. Our values guide the way we work with our customers, with each other, and shape our business overall.

Customers are our inspiration. We’re focused on protecting their devices, their data, and the time they spend online.

Teams are the catalyst. Diverse teams come together with a shared sense of purpose to apply breakthrough thinking for the best results.

Win with integrity. We thrive on pushing ourselves, acting with creativity, transparency and accountability to accomplish great things for our customers and our company.

    Product Manager - AVG Privacy Products - SAN Francisco - Oct 2013 Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AVG Technologies in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Job opening was advertised by staffing agency. Sent resume to recruiter and received immediate response. After initial phone screen recruiter set up phone interview with hiring manager (VP of Product). Phone interview went well and hiring manager mentioned several times that is very impressed with my background and employment history. After the phone interview never heard back from recruiter or hiring manager. Two weeks later made several calls to recruiter to get a status of my application but had no luck. Left message - No response. Sent follow up email - No response. Called hiring manager - No response. Emailed hiring manager - No response. Perhaps they found better fit but after experience like this don't think that would want to be part of this team and report to a manager that cannot even complete hiring process by sending final status to all who applied.
