CEO who motivates and leads with integrity. The environment allows you to contribute on many levels and if you are a true "start up" person, you will thrive. Work - Life balance is promoted and respected and while the culture is very no nonsense, there is also a fun vibe throughout the office. The engineers are very much a part of the team atmosphere (unlike other technology start ups I have worked for) and happy to answer questions and help us non-technical people when needed.The Viralheat solution is very intuitive, innovative and revolutionizes social media marketing.
Everything I love about a start up can also be some of the things that I also find challenging. Wearing too many hats and not having enough time in the day combined with not having some of the key positions filled can create some inconsistencies but that is to be expected with a start up. When you have the right people at the top, as Viralheat does, such challenges work themselves out
Advice to Management
Continue to create a work environment that fosters positive reinforcement and support for all employees and most importantly, remember the golden rule.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Viralheat (San Mateo, CA).
It started with the recruiter. No 22-year old, pushy recruiter was she; she took the time to carefully read my LI profile and ask thoughtful questions about how my different experiences would relate to the position. After a few screens with her, I asked if I could meet the CEO. The reason was that culture is #1 important to me (even more than $$, which is different from most Sales positions), and I wanted to find out how he actively promotes a positive, truly collaborative, respectful culture. Jeff was (is) humble, a great listener, happy to give 100% of the credit to others, and thoughtful. He's the antithesis of many other Valley CEOs that I've met in that there is exactly zero hubris, name-dropping, or "let me tell you what I have done" in the conversation. In my experience, culture comes down from the CEO and I was convinced. The company did everything that they said they would do, throughout the process. The most important interviewer for me? The new salesperson, who had just moved from Ops to Sales and who had been at the company for about 2 years. She positively gushed about the company and its culture. I asked for specific examples and she gave them. She clearly was not coached. It was my conversation with her that convinced me 100% that this was a company I wanted to join.
