-Highly inspiring leadership team and managers
-Very good processes, they give you a training on "CM Methodology" right after you join, kind of the southwest airlines model, where even as a developer they want you know what are the roles of various people in the company
-Honest & authentic communication internally and with customers
-transparent operationally, there are no secrets on what rate the SOW has for developers, how much the project margin is etc.. very inclusive in communication
-growing very fast
-even though we have this big booklet of processes, there are times when the process is not followed and we just get reasons for why it is not done
-I was assigned to a project where despite the process, there were steps that were missed, like no-documentation etc..
Advice to Management
It is time to scale the company, stay true to your dream of building the largest enterprise mobile development company. Keep it up.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Copper Mobile (Dallas, TX).
Initially called by a recruiter to setup a date to interview. After a few calls and emails, we set a day and time. We moved the time within the day a few times, as well as the day once (only to move it back to the original day). It was clear they were trying to shuffle around multiple interviews, which didn't really bother me. They only had one recruiter as far as I know.
When I got into the interview, every question was boring and lame trivia about Java. Although it is my preferred language, I cannot believe I was asked silly questions anyone could Google and know the definitive answer to in 1 minute. it was especially annoying because the way the interviewer asked the question, he seemed to hint that where I was heading with my answer was off/ridiculous (even though it was not) and that made me second-guess myself.
I did not get contacted after the interview. Which is fine, because I honestly wouldn't want to work somewhere that judges someone's programming ability on their language trivia.
- Why is there no multiple inheritance in Java? Isn't implementing multiple interfaces basically the same thing? Then why can you have multiple interfaces and not class inheritance? Were the Java developers just lazy/didn't know how to implement multiple inheritance? 1 Answer
