I have been working at Clearwater Analytics full-time (More than 5 years)
The team environment is engaging. The company hires hard-working, intelligent people who are working towards a common goal of client success. The culture is one of giving and taking feedback from those around you to develop as a professional. The client base is made up of many of the largest companies in the US, which means we interact daily with top professionals who challenge us to iterate and improve.
The company is undergoing a great deal of transformation as we move from the wild days of being a start-up to a more measured and mature mid-size company. This transition is requiring a great deal of agility from the Client Servicing team as we're trying to add in standard procedures and better document our processes, so that we can continue to grow at a fast but manageable pace.
Advice to Management
Do not lose sight on Client Success as our top priority. Continue to vigorously defend and maintain our culture.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Clearwater Analytics (Boise, ID) in June 2011.
First I got an email asking me to take a one-hour test on Google Docs. The questions included algebra (more the kind you can reason about than the kind that requires that you took a relevant class), logic, object-oriented programming, and database topics.
I felt I did well, and got an for a phone interview. It was mostly true false and multiple choice. The questions were again about logic, C++, Java, and databases. The interviewer said it was okay that I didn't have any databases experience, and to just guess for those questions.
After I passed that interview, they did a one-hour collabEdit coding phone interview.
I was asked to reverse a number (like 1284 to 4821) without resorting to string manipulation. I don't think I did very well. After a half hour of me struggling with that, he asked me how what he thought was an easy question: how to find the nearest common ancestor for two nodes in a binary tree.
After I solved that with his help, he asked me what motivated me to work in computer science.
