    Did you know that today is World Backup Day? If you answered 'no' to that question, you certainly aren't alone. It's not Christmas, Thanksgiving or Halloween. There are no big celebratory meals, and you likely won't be getting any gifts. Nevertheless, World Backup Day is a very real event and it's something that we take seriously here at Carbonite.

At Carbonite, we understand how much of your life is on your computer. That's why we want to make it as easy as possible to back it up.

We also make it easy to try Carbonite for free. All you need to do to get started is to enter your email address and create a password. That's it – there's no credit card required.

We keep your files safe and secure

Keeping your files safe and private is our top priority. That's why we take every precaution to make sure your valuable files are secure. Your files are encrypted before they leave your computer and encrypted again during transfer. Your files remain encrypted on our secure servers that are located in state-of-the-art data centers, which are guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

We listen – and respond

We sincerely appreciate that you've taken time out of your busy life to try Carbonite, and we take your input very seriously. Thanks so much for helping us to make Carbonite a success.

    I have been working at Carbonite


    Management is very receptive to new ideas. If you are good at what you do, you will be recognized and rewarded. From what I've seen the company believes in promoting from within.


    The company is a little top heavy, but there are lot of openings, so things might even out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the people you have working for you. You hired them for a reason.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Carbonite in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • - Describe yourself in 3 words
      - We need developer to interact with other teams. Does it work for you
      - Do you have any open source projects?
