    I have been working at Clever Devices full-time (More than 3 years)


    Over the years, Clever Devices has improved a lot. Onboarding has gone through an overhaul, the president conducts town hall meetings on a regular basis, etc.
    Communication between groups has improved and HR is actually doing productive things.
    Happy with our benefits.


    401k matching could improve.
    Sometimes management expects you to work nights and weekends

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees, they might have good ideas.
    Consider opening an office in Queens/Brooklyn to attract potential candidates that might not want to work in Long Island.

    Sr. Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Clever Devices (Raleigh, NC) in March 2017.


    Applied Online. Got an email from HR along with a questionnaire and programming test. After sending the answered questionnaire and the test then they scheduled a phone screen with HR. HR asked general question about background and salary expectations and gave some info about the company. Later scheduled an interview with the director. Lot of behavioral questions and asked about how many years of experience in each listed skill.At the end told a technical phone screen will be scheduled. Next day got an email saying there is no position available for suited for my background. All the info about my background is in the resume. I still don't understand that if they don't have a suitable position then why did they waste my time sending the programming test and questionnaire.I strongly feel they should respect the candidate's time.
