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

    Pros

    Flexibility in work schedule, ability to work from home regularly (I do this every Wednesday). I feel respected by everyone at the company. Great benefits and salary. The CEO is approachable. The office is beautiful with a great view being on the twelfth floor of an office building. The environment is comfortable and relies on self-motivation and team accountability rather than any sort of strict hierarchy to ensure quality of work and productivity.

    Cons

    100% my commute.
    Could use more diversity in the product development/engineering teams (I'm currently one of 2 women of color and 3 total women--though I do have to say that I even forget that at times, because I haven't been made to feel any less respected or trusted or included, and I have previously felt that sort of discomfort).

    Backend Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CitizenNet (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    There was a timed, online skills evaluation that was fairly challenging. Then a short, informal phone "screen" which I put in quotes because it was not with an HR person but another engineer, which was nice. During the phone call, we scheduled a 3 hour on-site interview, which seemed intimidating at first. However, when I got there the mood was generally easy-going. I met with the CEO first, then had 2 or 3 separate group interviews. There was some live coding during the interview with the team that the position was for. It felt almost a little more like pair programming (of course with less input from them than the usual pair programming) because it was conversational rather than them giving me a task and just watching and judging me in silence. The people were great, which is why I did take the offer.
