    I have been working at Calypso Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Crazy smart people doing really interesting work. Great downtown/FiDi office location, right at the Bart station. Good work/life balance - Friday happy hours, walking Wednesday, quarterly team building events. Cool Foosball table when you need a break, weekly fresh fruit provided in the office. Fully paid benefits!

    Cons

    Company is very geographic distributed so it can be difficult to get to know your colleagues. Teams in SF office tend to socialize mostly within themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more visible in the office outside your immediate group.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Calypso Technology (San Francisco, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied via Linkedin and received a recruiter call after several weeks of applying. The recruiter scheduled a phone call which was a casual chat (at least thats what i assumed). The day they called me, I was expecting just the recruiter talking about the company and stuff but I could sense the call was on loud speaker and there were more than one people on the call. I could hear whispering or change of voices.
    During the call they asked me if I mind answering few java questions. I said yes. And it more or less turned into technical interview. They asked like 12-13 questions on Java like a rapid fire round. I skipped one and answered all others.
    After the questions, they asked my salary expectations and told me they cannot match what I am expecting. I said ok. And then they never got back to me.
