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


    Base products are rock-solid. Newer endeavors show promise. Engineering culture is first-rate: collaborative, respectful, and flexible, with shared goals and minimal bureaucracy.


    Mistakes made by former CEO caused some disappointing setbacks a couple of years ago, but the company has made great strides since then and is well on the road to recovery.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nominum in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of one phone interview, one F2F and finally a visit to Redwood City, CA to interview with six different department leads. My particular interview with the hiring manager (phone and F2F) was very relaxed and comfortable. He dove deeper into my sales experience and asked for examples of success I had at prior jobs. The Redwood City interviews were more intense, however, all the interviewers were courteous and seemed to really want to learn about you the person. One interview lead to a white boarding session which was quite interesting. HR seemed very organized and the travel was quickly and professionally arranged.

    Interview Questions
    • The question came from the Global President of Sales. He asked for me to replicate a scenario where I had to speak with the executives from a customer and pitch the peroduct. this lead to a white board session. Good experience overall.   Answer Question
