    Pros

    Slide is the hottest company in tech. Slide consists of strictly A-list talent in business and engineering. Slide has the highest ratio of users to employees of any tech company in the world (over 170 million users, approx. 80 employees). Given the axiomatic formula for job kick-assness: (fun of workplace) x (fun of product) x (valuation of company), working at Slide is the most kick-ass job in the universe.

    Cons

    Slide employees must reconcile for outsiders how products that are ostensibly silly and just-for-fun can in actuality be seriously valuable. There is a high barrier-to-entry for novice Ping Pong and Mario Kart Wii players.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing: recognizing and rewarding talent and hard work.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Slide Inc in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by Slide's internal recruiter about the opening of a junior front-end web developer position. From the job description, it says "candidates should have experience with at least one of the following technologies - javascript, html, css, javascript frameworks; experience with python or other object-oriented languages, expertise in actionscript". So thinking that I'm very familiar with html/css and have no problem implementing jquery elements such as slideshows, fancy menus, galleries etc, I thought I'd be qualified for the job - I was wrong.

    When they called me up for the phone interview, 80% of the questions was about programming (not about building websites), but things like "if I have a folder with 50 html files, which might or might not contain phone numbers, how will you write a program to find those with phone numbers?" and "what Java classes would you use for modeling a casino?" While I had taken classes in programming in college, that was long ago and I've never used them when doing front-end web development. Interviewer was very nice, but did not expect them to ask questions like this for a junior front-end web developer position.

Ever been SuperPoked or had someone write on your Funwall? Thank this company, which has slid its way into the collective consciousness of the Internet generation. Slide develops technology that helps users put photos on the Web and present them through customized slide shows. Although the company provides image hosting, personalization tools, and social networking opportunities through Slide.com, the company's popularity stems from users of third party sites such as MySpace, Facebook, and Bebo, who use Slide applications to insert slide shows, pictures, or video clips...
