    I have been working at BoomTown (South Carolina) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at a couple of the Software companies in Charleston, and BoomTown continues to stand tall above the rest. I've been here long enough to see the company more than double in size, and though we've definitely had some growing pains, we've continued to maintain a culture and spirit that other companies in the area can't replicate, try as they might.

    Some of the highlights I've observed in my time here:
    - Competitive pay for the region.
    - Work hard, play hard mentality. Beer on tap at all times ٩( ᐛ )و . Truly impressive company parties twice a year (maintained even with the growing staff).
    - The company encourages mobility between teams, and wants to see you succeed in whatever role you choose to tackle.
    - Grier continues to be a strong leader for the company. You get a real sense that G believes in the mission of making RE agents more successful, and wants to see that mission through and isn't interested in selling. His enthusiasm is infectious.
    - Good diversity. It's awesome to see women crushing it in so many upper-level positions, particularly within the Development department.
    - Lots of transparency. Whether the news is good or bad, leadership seems to be making a concerted effort to communicate openly with the staff.
    - Strong community outreach efforts.

    Cons

    - In our new location, parking has become a real problem. We share the space with several other companies, as well as the Workshop test kitchen. We've tried to mitigate this by renting out a lot just up the street, but we're still usually at full capacity by 9:30am.
    - As we've grown, it's been increasingly difficult to interview for culture-fit as thoroughly as we did in the earlier days. Though we occasionally get it wrong, we still have a lot of passionate people dedicated to hiring the right people for the culture.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BoomTown (South Carolina) (Charleston, SC).

    Interview

    People submit their resumes on line or via referrals internally. Candidates recommended by current employees are given special attention. Typically candidates are given an initial phone interview followed by several in-person interviews. Usually they will first meet with the talent department followed by the hiring manager. Then they will have an in-depth technical interview with several members of the engineering team. They will be asked all kinds of questions related to what they've built, how they've done it, and what they're passionate about. They may also be asked to design things on-the-fly and or write some code to solve a problem in any language they are comfortable with. Usually the last part of the interview process is too see if the candidate is a good culture fit. They are usually interviewed by several people from different parts of the company.

    Once the interview process is complete everyone involved in the process sits down and has an open and honest discussion about the candidate and whether or not they're a great fit for the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Typically it will revolve around solving some kind of technical problem. It's not the same every time and definitely varies depending on who is giving the interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate salary, vacation, and relocation.
