    I have been working at Plaxo


    Plaxo has a startup culture inside a big company. People like to build products quickly that get used by lots of people.


    not a true startup, so no more promises of millions to be made when the company goes IPO or gets acquired

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berkeley, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Plaxo in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I first met with a recruiter at a career fair at my university. I gave him a resume and we were in touch by email later that day. 2 Days later I went through two phone screens, one with a non-technical representative, and the second with 2 guys from the engineering team. I was told that I would be asked to come down to the office in Mountain View for a full 4 hours in-person interview, but instead was extended an offer by email later that same day.
