    I have been working at A9.com full-time

    Pros

    I have been working in startups for the past 5-6 years and each place had some glaring issues. Either certain teams wielded too much influence or the decisions made by the executives were not to the benefit of the whole team. At A9 I feel like my work is appreciated and I am surrounded by some of the smartest people I have ever worked with. The team really focuses on a work/life balance and making sure you are not burnt out. It's not to say you don't work hard but there are reasonable expectations set. What is really exciting is that you have the backing of Amazon but are able to work in a nimble and fast way similar to a startup.

    Cons

    The Amazon culture is not for everyone so make sure you know what you are getting yourself into before joining. Certain people will thrive here and others will not like it. There is always a wish to have more perks (free food, sponsored lunch/happy hours) but it doesn't deter from the experience.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at A9.com (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is as follows:
    1) Recruiter contact
    2) Technical screen
    3) Panel interview - (4 to 5 engineers)

    The questions in the technical interviews gradually becomes more difficult and they are related to the previous question that was asked from you. Any interviewee will have no problem answering if they really know what is being asked of them.
