The BoxTone leadership was always very forthright and clearly communicated how the business was performing.
Sadly, BoxTone was acquired and no longer exists.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BoxTone (Columbia, MD) in June 2010.
Once shortlisted (mostly over a phone screen), I was called into the office. I was interviewed by 3 people for around 45 minutes each. [Note: If they feel you are not fit, you will not have all 3 interviews]. I think the people are very intelligent and know what they want. Questions are mostly based on fundamentals however will listen to any specializations you may have. For programmers there might be a coding challenge which again will be based on fundamentals.
Its a start up company. So, negotiation is tricky. I tried, but did not stress too much. The work is really interesting and to me that is what matters at the end of the day.
