I have been working at A9.com full-time
Although A9 has continued to grow tremendously each year, we've managed to maintain our start-up feel. The company is very employee-centric rather than corporate, and I feel that A9 really does care about its employees.
A9 is starting to become more and more Amazonian, which is both good and bad. Good because we get to utilize some of Amazon's resources, bad because Amazon is not as personal as A9. With new leadership, what has made A9 special for all these years is disappearing, so more and more people are moving on.
Advice to Management
Maintain the personal experience that A9 has always maintained; we don't want to be an automated company having to submit trouble tickets rather than having real people we can go to for help.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at A9.com in January 2018.
Applied online. Contacted by HR for a phone interview. The interviewer was very polite and patient throughout the whole process. Introduced the projects they were working on and patiently answered all of the questions I had. One of the best interviews I've ever had.
