SMBs need simple, easy-to-use solutions, and achieving this has been a challenge for large corporations like IBM and HP. Our CEO, Mohamad Ali, talks with Peter Howe of NECN to explain Carbonite's approach to solving this problem in the interview below. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIK8x
At Carbonite, your work is valued. Whether you’re fresh out of college or a seasoned pro, we want to know how your ideas can help take our company to new heights.
We have an experienced, dedicated leadership team that is committed to recruiting and retaining top talent in every area, from engineering to marketing, to achieve our strategic vision.
And even though we offer lots of perks, such as an open vacation policy, we know perks aren’t the only reason to join a company. The fact is that we are focused on enabling our employees develop their skills, expand their knowledge and advance their careers.
Carbonistas are encouraged to explore new areas and achieve the highest level of success in their roles. And we offer everything from training and management courses, to lunch and learns to help you get there. Consider Carbonite the perfect place to take your career to the next level!
Carbonite's award-winning Customer Care team shares their perspective on what it’s like to work with us.
From our hi-tech, Star-Wars-themed office in downtown Boston, to our free lunch Fridays and flexible work hours, we strive to keep our employees happy! Here are some of the perks you can expect to enjoy as part of our team:
We don’t like to brag, but we’d say our office is pretty darn cool, from our modern collaborative floor plan with its Star Wars theme, to writeable walls all over the place, lots of alternative work spaces, and in-house ping pong. Our comfortable atmosphere lends itself perfectly to our “no dress code” policy, where you can wear whatever works for you.
And your lunch hour and after-work life will never be boring again. We’re located in the heart of downtown Boston, just feet away from public transportation, bars and restaurants, and shopping galore.
Oh, and did we mention our Maine office houses a game room with video games, ping-pong, foosball and a bowling alley downstairs? Yup, we’ve got it all.
Benefits are important to all of us, and Carbonite offers exactly what you need. Our employees receive medical, dental and vision insurance, as well as 401K matching and tuition reimbursement. And, we don’t stop there.
Many of our employees are commuters and we know the added stress of having to locate and pay for transportation, so we offer subsidized parking directly underneath our Boston building, as well as discounted public transportation passes.
And, who doesn’t love free food? Our employees enjoy free breakfast every Monday to help them ease into the work week, as well as free lunch every Friday. We also provide free snacks and drinks throughout the day to keep your belly full, your brain caffeinated and your thirst quenched.
And if that’s not enough, we also celebrate the hard work of our employees with quarterly and holiday outings.
At Carbonite, we recognize the importance of work life balance. Not only do we allow for flexible work schedules, but we offer unlimited paid vacation time and the option to telecommute/work from home. We make it easy for you to take the time you need, when you need it.
We want you to stay healthy too. Carbonistas enjoy discounted gym memberships, free yoga classes, road races, nutrition coaching, chair massages, eyebrow waxing and more! If you’re passionate about health and wellness like we are, you can even join our Wellness Club.
Volunteering and giving back to the community are also near and dear to us. Carbonistas donate time and goods to numerous charities including Cradles to Crayons, Evergreen Center and Greater Boston Food Bank. We also host blood drives, food and clothing donations and more. Have an idea for our next community service project? We’d love to hear it!
At Carbonite, we offer internships and co-op opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students in many areas of study, so chances are we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you. If you’re a driven, ambitious student who welcomes a challenge, you’re half way to becoming a Carbonista already!
As an intern, there’s nothing better than feeling like a full-time employee who is really making an impact, and at Carbonite we treat you just like one of us. Whether you’re collaborating with engineers, user experience experts, accountants or marketers, you’ll have the opportunity to own your role, work on projects that we’re actually deploying to our customers, and make a real contribution during your time here.
When you join our team, we expect you to bring your “A” game, and come ready to learn and share your ideas. Remember, we see YOU as the future of our company. So if you show us you’re indispensable, we will find a way to hire you full-time. In fact, many of our interns are offered full-time positions upon graduation.
Since we treat you like a Carbonista, we also give you many of the same perks, including flexible hours, free meals, snacks and drinks, volunteering opportunities and more. Plus, you get to work in one of the coolest offices in Boston!
Beyond the traditional perks, we want you to make the most of your time at Carbonite. As part of our Mentorship Program, you’ll learn about what it’s like to work in different areas of our company. We’ll also have Lunch and Learns just for you, where you’ll get to meet with senior management to discuss everything from our company history to their career experiences.
So, what are you waiting for? Send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have been working at Carbonite full-time (More than 3 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Very employee focused. Carbonite (Lewiston) fills over 92% of non Support positions internally so lots of room for growth. Benefits are superior to any company I have worked for (including large corporations). People here are welcomed despite being different, or a little geeky. First place I have seen where being a "techno geek" is welcomed and even encouraged! Voted one of Maine's Best Places to work in 2014.
Every con i have seen in the past 4 years has been addressed and in ways I never expected. What is a con today will not be tomorrow. You can bank on that. We made the Best Places to Work in Maine list last year after failing horribly 2 years ago. Changes in leadership staff and a commitment to making the company more employee focused are the reason in my opinion.
Advice to Management
Keep remembering the folks who are the front line with our customers. Our current leaders do this daily and it has paid off in a big way. Touring candidates through the center is a pleasure. Every single candidate sees for themselves that everyone is happy, and wants to be here.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Carbonite (Boston, MA) in March 2015.
Applied for the position online. HR contacted me within a week. Phone calls: Had phone conversations twice, both times with different manager. Was OK. In-person interview: I was told the interviews would last for 3 hours. Was fairly excited that I would be asked some good to great technical questions. Here is how it played out:\ - Met the HR. Her questions -- Why are you looking to change? -- Are you interviewing other companies? Are you going to take up the offer if they extend one? -- What is your salary reqs? - Met the VP. No technical questions. Professional fit questions only. -- Describe yourself in 3 words -- We need the engineer to interact with other non tech teams and sometimes even with customers. Are you willing to do that? - Met 3 different managers, one of them was a hiring manager. No technical questions. Again, only professional fit questions. -- The hiring manager mentioned that he wants all his employees to be always working on other technologies so that they are ready to switch jobs in the future. -- I asked the one other manager about what he likes the most about working, to which he replied by mentioning everything except for the kind of work he has done at the company. - Met an engineer: Professional fit questions only. I don't even remember the discussion. The experience was mind numbing. In a nutshell, I spent 3 hours interviewing and there was not a single technical question asked. Bad reviews about the company on Glassdoor could also explain the hiring process.
