Mission: To transform how organizations evaluate risk and security performance.
I worked at BitSight full-time (More than a year)
I had a great time at BitSight and grew immensely as an engineer there. The leadership and teams are extremely talented and focused on being the leaders in the market. You'll work with people from diverse backgrounds and there is always something new to learn.
-Working with the market leader that helped define the market itself
-A well funded and established startup, but still with plenty of opportunities to move up for the ambitious.
-Being well established, the equity is really promising.
-Modern tech stack. Additionally, management is not afraid at all to tackle upgrading legacy technologies.
-There are tons of problems to solve so there are tons of opportunities to move around and work on different problems.
-Free catered lunches on Fridays (free food is extremely rare in the RTP), unlimited snacks and drinks every day.
-Compared to other local Raleigh startups, the compensation is good.
-The Raleigh office is small and could use some more love.
-With the company rapidly growing, they need to update their bonus and 401k structure.
Advice to Management
The Raleigh office is talented; keep investing and making sure remote teams have more face-to-face time with headquarters and their teams.
I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at BitSight (Boston, MA) in October 2015.
First do a problem offline. Then phone interview for half an hour about your experience, and some behavior question such as what would you do under certain scenario. Then 2 round onsite interviews about algorithms and some experiences.
