    Interview Details

    Hiring process was fast; initial phone screening with the recruiter, a phone interview with an Account Executive, then onsite interviews.

    I wasn't very happy with the company I was with, so I was really doing my due diligence in researching companies but also applying to a good amount of places. So I had another offer by the time CipherCloud extended me one. They moved fast because they knew I was considering other opportunities.
