I have been working at Red Nova Labs full-timePros
Red Nova Labs is filled with young, fun, gifted people. I look forward to coming to work everyday and am fortunate to work with people who are passionate about creating and/or supporting our product lines. The friendships I've made here have been invaluable to me in both my personal and professional life.
At many other jobs, you would be relegated to only knowing what is essential to your job title. This is not the case at RNL. I feel like everyone has the opportunity to learn new skills if they desire and the structure of the company provides the ability wear many hats, gaining invaluable knowledge along the way.
Overall, the culture embodies the "work hard, play hard" mentality. There may not be a party everyday, but working with this lively crew always keeps it interesting and enjoyable.Cons
This organization would not be a good fit for you if you're looking for a structured, inflexible, process oriented environment. Priorities on projects change often and you have to be quick on your feet in order to be successful.
Compensation is also on the low end of average for most positions in the company. However, people are often given the chance to prove themselves in roles that they may be inexperienced in and these opportunities will help advance their careers in the future.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Red Nova Labs.Interview Details
This company centers most of their business around the self-storage industry. Not exactly exciting, but at least project development would be a little more predictable day-to-day.
Although they do some PHP development, unfortunately this company uses a lot of Ruby. From the TIOBE index and from the PYPL (Popularity of Programming Language Index) you can see from 2009 Ruby has been in a nose dive. Obviously Ruby is quickly falling out of favor by developers. Pro-Ruby shops are a big turnoff for me as a seasoned programmer.
The culture on this inside was just a bunch of long tables thrown into the center of a room with everyone uncomfortably cramped around them. In reality, cubical-free doesn't mean more creative collaboration, it just means they only want to save space and money by not providing nice offices and nice desks. Everyone's legs and height are different and everyone needs a different desk height and chair height to properly accommodate safe posture. Isn't it interesting that you don't see any office executives working off of old schools desks; you see them working in a nice office, nice chair, and a nice desk with a door for occasional privacy and concentration. Having to be hunched-over a long table all day was another big turnoff.Interview Questions

- If you are applying for a programming position be prepared to take a fairly hard (and strangely abstract) one hour written test, and also be prepared to write out functions and create programs from memory. Answer Question
