    I have been working at Dimagi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sticks to the mission and is attempting to make great technology available to those who can benefit from it the most. Hearts are really in the right place and are thoughtful about the work that they do, it's about doing things the right way and setting a high bar for the work that is done in low resource settings.

    Flexible work environment, generally everyone gets along and are good friends. Lots of international travel and ability to work on a lot of different projects. I've worked in more areas of public health and with a list of impressive international organizations that most people have done in a decade.

    Technically strong for international development, team is mostly engineers and really talented ones at that.

    Cons

    Not a perfect company, but good luck finding one in the development sector. Pay is not competitive and growth within the company is getting more and more difficult. Also, not the best at firing low performers, but typically doesn't hire them to begin with.

    Partners can be somewhat difficult compared to dealing with the true for-profit sector and are very resource strapped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directed growth and retain good staff.

    Interview Details

    A simple skype interview. something about the time complexity of all kinds of data structures like array, list, stack, queues. Also ask several questions about database, some basic definitions.
    also asked strongly typed and weakly typed language.
    Fibonacci and reverse a string. the first one is to select numbers from 1 to 100 which is times of 3 and 5. easy to handle but also asked to optimize it. A little confused about it
