I have been working at Azul Systems full-time (More than 3 years)
1. Azul is widely viewed as the foremost expert on all things Java, whether performance, open source, or embedded.
2. Quality and committed employees. Many of the employees have been here 5-10 years (company is 15 years old)
3. Respectful culture
1. Could use further investment in Sales and Marketing
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Azul Systems in February 2012.
Got a call from the recruiter and then got 3 follow-up technical phone interviews. The process was slow as the manager left and the interviews resumed after a month. After the last interview, I mailed recruiter to update me. He told me that few candidates were lined up. After 2-3 days, he called up and told me that the team wants to move forward with me.
