When I considered the opportunity, the company was already known for its people and products. But what surprised me most on my first day is everything I had read and heard about PernixData's products is not even half of what is really going on...and what is going on is mindbogglingly brilliant. The company has a vision not just about a product, but about what it takes to be an enduring technology company.
Well, sometimes my favorite snack runs out. Basically, I can't think of many beyond some first world problems :)

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at PernixData in May 2015.
The interview process included meeting many people of the team I work with as well as executives in the department. Due to the high amount of interviews we scheduled the process took multiple months but it was always an enjoyable, very friendly conversation with every person I met.
