I have been working at Argo AI full-time (Less than a year)
* You get to work on the most exciting engineering problem of our generation with the best people in the field
* You get to work with incredibly smart and passionate people who have a lot of experience and can teach you a ton
* Awesome work environment, friendly and positive people
* Great perks including catered meals, unlimited vacation, gym reimbursement, etc.
* Great compensation and equity
None that I can see.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing and keep the bar for talent high as you grow.
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.
