    Interview

    These guys have a reputation for doing stunts about hiring as a way to generate buzz for their platform, not actually having available jobs or hiring top talent. I have a good reputation, credentials, and they cynically sent me a sarcastic no reply email. That's when I knew they weren't sincere and just feeling the market. A few years later, it turns out the natural growth engine of the company (the luck) is now waning off, and they're letting people go. So even the few mediocre B and C level devs that laid low and didn't pose a political threat to managers are seeking other work now. Time wasters, insincere. Low skill and intimidated by true talent for sure.
