Enterprise mobility company Kony recently announced the integration of Crittercism’s mobile app performance management (APM) into the Kony Mobility Platform to enhance enterprise mobile app user experience. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIWlB
Kony provides an integrated, cloud-based platform that empowers enterprises to define, design, build, test, deploy, & manage multi-channel app experiences.
Kony is the fastest growing cloud-based mobile application development platform (MADP) in the industry with over 600 live multi-channel apps, serving over 20 million end users across 45 countries. The Kony Experience Platform is an integrated software development lifecycle (SDLC) platform to define, design, develop, test, deploy, and manage multi-channel applications from a single code base. With Kony, you can deliver stunning user-first experiences, get to market faster, and lower your application TCO. Kony also offers a suite of ready-to-run B2E and B2C apps that enable customers to quickly extend their business.
In 2014 Kony was named a “Leader” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms (MADP).
The multi-channel approach
The idea of one computer and one phone per person is outdated. Whether your users are employees or consumers, chances are they have several devices including desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets. They expect their apps to work on any device, instantly, with a consistent user experience. This expectation is driving the need for multi-channel application development strategies. The multi-channel approach is to build the same app for any device using a single code base.
Kony's multi-channel advantage
Kony’s approach empowers enterprises to take control of their digital strategy by delivering consistent app experiences across the multitude of devices available today and in the future. You can build an app once and provide device-optimized experiences to every channel – smartphones, desktop, tablets, and more – with the click of a button. The Kony application development platform does the rest.
Kony Development Cloud allows you to combine and orchestrate data from multiple sources – web services, legacy systems and websites – to drive new application experiences that were previously impossible. You can build feature-rich, multi-channel apps that run in native, hybrid and web-based deployment modes. All of this can be done from a single code base without compromising the user experience.

When you look at the leadership team's background of the companies they have worked at for decades before joining Kony Inc., you know this is the band wagon you want to jump on. This leadership team has a vision. They know what the competitor is thinking, and building a team and products that will outshine the next. This is a company that hires Quality over Quantity, so if you are just looking for a job...Kony is not the place for you. With this company at the beginning stages, they value each and every person's opinion of what works and doesn't work. Being part of this development is a huge step in my career and honored I was selected be apart of this journey.
Since the company is new... the person coming into the position expertise is immediately used and no real formal training. Its more throwing your experience into the mix and hope it rises in the oven instead of falling flat.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Kony in March 2013.
I've heard different accounts of the interview process. Some taking many, many interview steps with multiple personnel others very few. I do know that once they know you are the right candidate they move very fast to get you on board. Questions will vary widely but will be focused on your indicated skill sets to determine if you really know your stuff. Expect to do a demo of something you are comfortable with or a skills test.
