    Pros

    Conductor offers a great culture for the engineer who wants knowledgeable colleagues, a variety of challenges, and many engineering learning experiences. There's a good balance of new tech and established process in the stack. Work-life balance is very good for a company of this size (mid to large startup) in an emerging space. People do work hard and put in long hours, but there is also enough flexibility to live a healthy life. There is a very high degree of visibility across the company, with weekly summaries from each department. Management is very accessible. Mistakes are used constructively. The annual C3 trade show it hosts really drives home how much your work means to the people who use the product. Having worked at other places that stumbled on numerous organizational pitfalls, I can say Conductor has managed to hit a difficult sweet spot. The culture here is well balanced, positive, and I enjoy coming to work.

    Cons

    It's sometimes hard to balance new development while addressing preexisting tech debt, but these factors are well accounted for in task planning. It would also be good to see faster hiring - the company has a lot of features it wants to release, and a lot of responsibility rests on our shoulders.

    Advice to Management

    The department grew a lot last year, and it needs to keep growing in order to meet product expectations. The only way to get more features out the door faster with fewer bugs is to keep up the long term investment in hiring and training tech personnel.

    Matching 401K would be a nice perk!

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Conductor (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went through and had only a singe interview in person in NY. It was through Firstmark Cap, in which there were about 60-70 people there and we were all applying for different startups. I ended up having interviews with 3 of them (most people interviewed with 3 or 4 during the day). It was just the one day and then we ranked which companies we liked best.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a String that holds an equation, return the answer as a string. i.e. given "5 + 14 + 80 x 4 / 8 - 6" return the answer in the form of a string. Don't worry about doing any complex data structure, just use the brute force approach.   Answer Question
