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

    Pros

    Competitive compensation, great benefits including extras like gym stipend, bottomless snacks - we take these for granted in the tech sector and Cloudability has all of them.

    Where I think they stand out:
    - A true startup, which is great if that's your cup of tea. They are growing fast!
    - Very engaged with the community, they sponsor many groups and host many meetups.
    - Small enough that the executives know your name and large enough to have good revenue and specialists in all of the leadership positions.
    - Great technology niche - the cloud is the place to be.

    But most of all the culture and people value a rare combination of fun and professionalism. They hire people for their life experience and values as much as for their competencies.

    Cons

    Startups are volatile, and Cloudability has a lot of turnover. They are not afraid to take risks and when they don't work out they may have to get out of a location or let a group of people go.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cloudability.

    Interview

    The first thing they do is send you an assignment. Not just a few coding problems that you can do under an hour, but a whole CRUD API project that would take a fast developer at least 2-3 hours to throw together. But if you need to do research will take much longer.
    Next is video interview with hiring manager and another engineer. They go through each company you worked at and ask you the same exact five questions: What's your biggest accomplishment, relationship with boss, why did you leave, etc. It was almost comical. Reminded me of the 90s style "what is your biggest weakness" interview questions that everyone makes fun of. So they are looking for people with good presentations skills - not creative dev skills. I got rejection email day later, but I knew that I failed before that. I tend to concentrate on negative things too much, but that's what makes me a good developer!
    The whole process felt very bureaucratic, formal and lazy. The experience left me with a negative feeling, but it is very unlikely that I would have joined anyway. I just regret wasting a good part of weekend on that silly project. Seems like they missed the whole flat organization movement are looking for followers instead of creative devs that take ownership.
