Giving back to the community has been a part of BuildASign’s DNA since our inception. We believe deeply in taking care of our customers, our teams, and those within our community.

Since 2008, we’ve given over $1M of in-kind donations to more than 1,700 unique non-profits through discounted signage and products. We also created a Troops program that has donated more than 345,000 banners and signs to the friends and families of military service members returning home from a deployment.

We empower BuildASigners to flex their philanthropic muscles through a series of community-based perks and opportunities:

  • Volunteer Time Off (VTO): A time-off program in which BuildASigners get paid to volunteer up to 24 hours a year!
  • Employee donations matching to the non-profit of their choosing.
  • A dedicated Community Advocate to help individuals and teams find the perfect volunteer opportunity, and organize BuildASign-wide giving blitzes and community events.
  • Taking part in programs like The Startup Games, Amplify Austin, and CreatAthon. Each of these programs are not only great team builders, but they benefit local and national non-profits.

To learn more about any of these programs, email giving@buildasign.com.

    I have been working at BuildASign.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunches, decent benefits package, and the shift work is fine after you get used to it.

    Cons

    Primary way of getting hired on is through a temp agency.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t get too caught up and forget that changing things too much affects the employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BuildASign.com (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Behavioral interview with the technical manager, followed by a technical interview on the phone with an architect, followed by a unique on-site white board interview. The phone interview consisted of questions covering concepts all over computer science.

    Interview Questions

    • You are given a database that has a single table with six columns: FirstName, LastName, ContactType, PhoneNumber, Email, CreatedOn.

      Data may look like:

      John | Doe | Work | 8881234567 | johndoe@email.com | Dec 22, 2012
      John | Doe | Cell | 8882345678 | johndoe@email.com | Dec 23, 2012

      The only clue given was the question, "How can we be sure that those two John Doe rows are the same person?" With that, redesign the database for better reliability and performance.   Answer Question
    • Given a string of random (alphabetical) characters, return a new string as follows:

      null -> null
      "" -> ""
      "a" -> "a"
      "aa" -> "a2"
      "abb" -> "ab2"
      "abbbxyzeeeec" -> "ab3xyze4c"   Answer Question
