I have been working at Sila SG full-time (More than 5 years)
I've been with Sila for over five years and have really enjoyed my time here. I've had the opportunity to work on a number of different projects for several clients, and, for the most part, the type of work has been interesting and engaging. They have been great about professional development; they've paid for some coursework and have encouraged me to pursue additional certifications. In addition there are a number of internal professional development options that we are encouraged to take advantage of. They are very supportive of community involvement to point that they support you in using hours to volunteer. The company has a good culture and has frequent events to get coworkers to know one another. Lots of fun runs, picnics, happy hours, volunteering activities, stuff like that. They're pretty good about hiring skilled people with interesting backgrounds that you actually want to get to know, which makes the work environment more pleasant.
Limited to two major accounts at the Seattle office, but they are working on building out more clients.

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sila SG.
I was recruited through a meet up I had attended when I said I had been looking for employment right out of University. They were the ones who contacted me through Linkedin and gave me a phone screening and informational talk before bringing me into the office. I had two in person interviews with several people. The first I was interviewed by two software developers as well as the recruiter, while the second I had skype interviews with the DC office. Both went extremely well and were more about work ethics and how you solve problems than technical skill sets. They were extremely kind and helpful and we ended up having many interesting conversations. The only downside was my interview process took over ten weeks from start to finish. I had two to three weeks in between each interview. It was not until I mentioned I had another offer, did the process speed up considerably.
- I had very few technical questions or hard interview questions. The hardest was how would I solve problems in a very detailed format as well as the dreaded "where do you see yourself in five years" question Answer Question
I did not negotiate as the offer was great and I knew I had a chance of increasing perks as time went on.
