I have been working at Argo AI full-time (Less than a year)
1. The people
2. The culture
3. The passion
4. The benefits
Sometimes the hours can be long, but you'll never be in the office alone, and you'll never be without help solving whatever problem you have!
Advice to Management
Keep hiring passionate, intelligent, high-caliber people!
I have to say I've never been in such a demeaning tech screen before. This was a general phone screen for the software engineer position, and the interviewer made leaps to suggest that I'm ideal for the CI/build tools team, interrogated me about how much knowledge I have of things like kernels, deep learning optimizers, whether I'm a c++ master, have worked on gui's and webapps. Are these not apparent in my resume and through my stories? He interrupted a lot while I was coding and proceeded at the end to tell me I'm not a good fit for software engineering at Argo but maybe DevOps would be a better choice for me as the standards for coding are a lot lower - suggesting I'm not a good software engineer. Coding interviews, especially one hour ones, do not holistically evaluate a candidate. I am well aware of that and accept rejections from companies when I have off days or there are problems I haven't done in a while, but to generalize my performance based on a 30-minute coding question and give me unsolicited advice on my carer choices is extremely offensive. It was a slap to the face.
