    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Alert Innovation.


    I applied online and got contacted by HR in the same day. The HR asked me for list of available times. After I gave her the time list, no response ever. I sent a reminder email to the HR. Still no response. This is the most bizarre experience I ever had while interviewing with so many other companies. No one was like this.

Company Updates

  • We're having a bit of an arms race here at Alert. Last week Julian made omelets (complete with menu!) while we rearranged all 100 cubies. Not to be outdone, this week Matt and Dave made waffles and pancakes. We just haven't quite figured out how to deliver breakfast to Alertians working offsite.

  • It's incredibly exciting to see our first system up, running, and picking orders. However, there's no standing around and watching, we're already well underway on our second installation. It takes an incredible team to go from concept to reality in under 2 years.
