Do you have an innate desire to know how things work? Can you determine the technology serving this website in 30 seconds? Do you know a dozen powers of two off the top of your head? Do you love open-source software, and have given back by pushing bug fixes? If so, you might be happy here.

The goal of the Signpost engineering team is to create defect-free software at maximum velocity – while loving what we do. Our work is challenging and interesting, our coworkers are world-class and driven, and our culture is collaborative, humble, and results-oriented.

We take pride in our work and have real ownership in our company and our product. Every one of us has an enormous impact on moving Signpost forward. And while our team has an average of 12 years' experience, we love to learn, and software engineering is an art we're continuously striving to master. But we're also known for having a bit more fun than we probably should.

    I have been working at Signpost full-time

    Pros

    Autonomy and the ability to truly make an impact (via the product) on the overall economic health of small business in our economy. Small businesses form the backbone of our economy in terms of employing most of our workforce and delivering the majority of economic output. But many small businesses continue to hesitate to embrace technology because they perceive it as too difficult or expensive. Signpost's product REALLY does have the ability to change this which is awesome to be a part of.

    Cons

    Competitive. Also, in reference to above, if you need "hands-on" management and you are not the type of individual who can deliver on projects through your own ownership...this might not be the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up a bit more on market challenges. The staff here believes in the product, so no need to sugar coat challenges!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Signpost .

    Interview Details

    I applied online and had a phone interview the very same day, just a few hours later. Over the phone was simple--they wanted to know why I was interested in the company, and what it was about a sales position that interested me. They invited me for an interview at the end of the call. The in-person interview was 1 on 1 and seemed normal enough. I didn't have sales experience, so they wanted to know how I was going to be a good fit. I think they knew rather quickly that I wasn't right for the job, as the interview lasted only 15 minutes and seemed to cut off rather abruptly.
