Boingo – Why Work For Us?


Meet Boingo

Boingo helps the world stay connected to the people and things they love. We build Wi-Fi, cellular (DAS) and small cell networks at big venues like airports, stadiums, military bases, and commercial real estate properties, and then we monetize those networks with a number of unique products and services.

Back in 2001 (when Wi-Fi was still called “802.11”) we dreamed of a world where people could connect to the wireless Internet anywhere, with any device. Today that dream is reality. Our laptops, tablets, phones, wearables, cars, even our refrigerators – all wirelessly connect to the web. We have connectivity in our homes, our offices, our cities, our planes – even our National Parks. Over the past 16 years Boingo has grown from start-up to the leading Wi-Fi company in the world, and the largest indoor DAS (cellular) provider in the United States. And we’re just getting started.

    I have been working at Boingo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I arrived back to work after the weekend to be told I would be getting a raise based on a positive review from last year. I never had to ask for it or threaten to leave the company for my work to be recognized. This is the first place I've worked where the company voluntarily offered me more money because they value my work. Boingo is really a company that gets it.

    Cons

    I really do not have any Cons to share- I enjoy working here and my work is valued.

    Advice to Management

    Keep valuing people the way you are- that is breeding loyalty.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Boingo.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely fluid. I heard about this opportunity from a Boingo employee who always spoke highly of the company. I had an initial phone call with the direct report which was very conversational and informative. I was told that they were looking to fill this position early February. The first step was a phone interview with their HR Tech Recruiter in LA whom I spoke to over the phone. She was also extremely pleasant. I was asked to share my interest in this position and industry background. The following week, I had a face-to-face with the direct report. This time we had a more pointed conversation on the vitality of the Boingo platform, growth of the network and how my experience was relevant in this excelling in this role.

    I was then asked to meet two colleagues from the NY team which I found valuable, as camaraderie would be vital working in this small sattegliete office.. Each asked about my background and shared their experience at the company. My final step was to present which took place 2nd week of January. I was extended the offer the week after which I enthusiastically accepted with a start date on the first week fo February.

    From here the HR was in contact with me facilitated the necessary admin process of offer letter, and other necessary on-boarding steps which was efficiently done through their HR software.

    Overall this was the most streamlined interview process I’ve ever experienced. It was evident that Boingo is a unique company hearing each employee speak with highly about their jobs, colleagues and culture fostered by the CEO.
