    Clevertech Thoughts | Remote Success: Communicating like an adult in business

    Ever order a cake and want a special message written on it, but it didn't quite work out the way you intended? People started sharing their biggest "cake fails," where they ordered a cake and asked for a particular message on it, but the employees at the bakery got it totally wrong.

Clevertech – Why Work With Us?


We’re aware that solid engineering practices and our love of Agile principles aren’t enough to ensure that we translate our clients’ dreams into software that shapes the world.

Our team of over 100 developers and designers are what make it possible.

You control your life.

First of all, it's all remote work. You can be anywhere in the world!

You don't have to experience time-consuming commutes and get to enjoy working from wherever you want, with whoever you want (be it your family, friends, strangers, or by yourself).

The focus, productivity, creativity, and happiness that produces is amazing!

You keep learning. You GROW.

With Clevertech, you become part of a team of top-notch developers. We're talking people who have worked for or rejected offers from companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Adobe, and the likes.

All this knowledge is shared and we're always looking to use the most recent technologies and trends. We want you to experiment, fail, learn, and improve.

If you show us leadership potential, we'll include you in our leadership program. It's like personal development on steroids.

Love speaking at conferences? We can sponsor that!

You enjoy every day.

We always try to make sure you enjoy what you're doing.

We employ flexible agile and lean techniques to all projects, while keeping track of the technologies you love working with, and the ones you don't like so much.

Everyone is focused on a single project and our project teams are small—the result? Everyone feels heard and has a chance to make an impact.

And one more thing...You're a part of us.

Every month we have a CleverFriday, where everyone shares their thoughts about what's getting them excited lately about Clevertech and where we should improve.

The feedback we get here is great and allows us to continue growing, as a symbiotic and synergetic whole being.

    Pros

    * Fully remote-first -- the company is built from the ground up to support remote workers
    * Lots of special events to reward developers
    * Lots of training events, especially leadership and skill-sharing
    * Flexible schedules (varies by project)
    * Value-driven as opposed to politics driven -- if you're delivering value for the client, you're doing a good job.
    * Awesome projects -- not simply a WordPress or Drupal mill. Clevertech builds and maintains enterprise-grade web applications from the ground up with expert full-stack developers.
    * Easy communication channels with management

    Cons

    * Less structure than an in-office sort-of-deal
    * Less hand-holding. You're expected to know your stuff and to ask lots of questions

    Advice to Management

    * Continue supporting devs as you've been doing -- the emotional support and leadership guidance helps your projects succeed

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clevertech.

    Interview

    I was really excited about this role and company, and my interview with a recruiter went great, we had a good, easygoing conversation. Then she told me I would take a “details test” and she very specifically said “please read the instructions!” since obviously it’s a details test. She said time was important, but accuracy was as well. When I got the email to take the test, it said that it should take between 15 and 25 minutes. I completed it in 20, and I was pretty confident I did well, so I was pretty shocked when I got an email the next morning that after reviewing my results, I wouldn’t be moving forward in the process. I decided to respectfully ask what I could improve on for future reference, because honestly I just could not believe that I didn’t do well on the test so I must have completely misinterpreted how well our interview went, and the recruiter emailed me back my results from the details test. I got 93% of the questions right, and as I said it took me 20 minutes to complete, but somehow that put me in the 61st percentile, so clearly it should not take “between 15 and 25 minutes” because the speed is what brought my score down so significantly, even though it took me only 20 minutes. Furthermore, the test was literally comparing names, addresses, numbers, etc and basically finding a match. I could *maybe* understand utilizing something like that for a data entry job, but that’s not what the job I applied for was at all. Clearly I have pretty strong attention to detail considering I missed 3 out of 44 of them within 20 minutes. Beyond being just annoyed and frustrated for having wasted my time and energy, I also feel like this is a colossal waste of time for this company’s recruitment team. The recruiter told me that she would spend all day interviewing people and this test disqualified so many of them because they don’t read the instructions (which, again, I did read and follow the instructions, and I was told it wasn’t a speed test which clearly that’s what it was). If this test is really going to narrow down their candidate pool so much, why not just have it be taken before an interview? It’s safe to say I have been thoroughly turned off of this company by this process, so there’s really no love lost. I just hope this review helps any potential candidates prepare better.
