I have been working at Fuze full-timeRecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting a lot of new faces with new energy coming in. Flexible work hours. Free lunches (Daily for PA/Seattle and Fridays for SF). Unlimited snacks, drinks. Place with lots of opportunities to learn.
Recently obtained a fair amount of engineers.
Most people who are still around believes in the product, and it feels like we've come a long way.
However, with recent attrition in the Engineering department, there's a lot of work that needs to be done and not enough people to do it. Also feels like engineers don't get enough recognition (It's always "thanks" to the sales engineer or to support....most issues had to have gone through the eng department at one point or another...)
Feels like we should but aren't focused on stabilization. The new work coming in are mostly about design changes and new features whereas we continue to have lots of bugs in what we currently have. Some areas don't get enough attention from the managers--either complete these features or discontinue supporting them.
Workload seems to vary between people--some seem to work more than others.
Advice to Management
We have enough managers for a company our size.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview

I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Fuze.
Got call through a consultant, 1st round was with manager of ops team. He explained about the role and asked my experience, few questions.
Second round was with 2 devops guys (thats what the HR told me). I had no experience with networking & mentioned at the beginning itself but he asked 90% from networking itself.
Worst interview. Just 1 guy was asking all the questions, the other guy just sat and listened. Their attitude was to find fault, never asked anything in the area of my expertise (which is relevant to the requirements).
- What is subnet, subnet masks? write code in Bash for reverse a string, How to build AMI from scratch (he was expecting some scripting which I still dnt know who does in DevOps cloud environment), how to create networking in building ESXi, FT and HA? Explain default gateway mechanism. Answer Question
