I have been working at BloomReach full-time (More than 3 years)
Really good/smart people tackling deep Enterprise software challenges. Strong products and an evolved product strategy post acquisition early 2017. Aggressive compensation plans but challenging targets.
A lot of change. Change in the DNA of the company as it grows past early stage 'engineering culture' and into more of a 'sales culture'. Change in the distributed nature of the company with hubs now in Amsterdam, India & Dallas vs. everything in Mountain View. All relatively normal change in the evolution of a company in the $50m revenue range v. $10m range.
Advice to Management
Embrace the change and don't slow down. A lot of efforts working to retain legacy people that struggle with change. Move faster turning the legacy employees, bring in new people faster and don't let the challenge of scale slow down momentum.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at BloomReach (Dallas, TX) in February 2017.
I was sought out by a recruiter, and the interview process was very lengthy, and borderline unprofessional.The entire process took a total of 8 weeks, and consisted of 4 phone interviews, 1 face to face interview, 1 writing assignment. Each phone interview was with a different executive, who was clueless about your stage in the interview process.
