    I have been working at Telmate full-time (more than an year)


    Self-managed teams, a Director that is professional and listens to your concerns and needs. The location is amazing, right in the center of the Financial District, China Town, near north beach and a few minutes from Union Square. Very smart people with great ideas and innovation. Great catered meals, snacks and break area.


    The biggest con right now are the growing pains and implementing enterprise solutions that are manageable instead of complete home grown solutions. Change is tough at any time in a company but totally expected and needed with massive growth! Documentation is pretty scarce but offers a challenge in correcting that issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With all the growth going on, some sort of guideline must be established to define the role of Product Owners in each group.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Telmate in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, spoke to the recruiter over the phone then had a video interview with the decision makers.

    I had a great time learning about their company and the individuals I spoke with. I felt like we had such a great connection.

    My only concern was that I was turned down based on not having enough experience, where that could have been easily found from reviewing my resume.

    Overall, it was a very positive experience and I left gaining more perspective.
