I have been working at Conversocial full-time
Incredible company to work for; the team is welcoming and super friendly, there is an unlimited vacation policy (yes for real), and very laid back atmosphere. Everyone works hard but also knows how to and is respected for keeping a solid work/life balance. Moreover, there are all the "start up" perks such as daily snacks and fruits, company lunches, outings, game nights, and more (did I mention they even have a billiards table!?!?) From a business perspective, the company itself is headed toward major growth and is constantly launching new improvements for the platform. Additionally, Conversocial is constantly acquiring new clients and business, and that bodes positively for the longevity of the company.
There really are none! (Unless you consider a relaxed atmosphere a con).
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Conversocial (London, England (UK)) in June 2016.
The process started with a 45-minute phone call with some in depth questions about my CV and techie details on the projects I've worked on, followed by some basic technical questions that involved databases and web architecture design notions. I passed that and got invited to an online coding test with two engineers. We designed some test cases and did some TDD coding. The engineers where really nice. The exercise was not very complicated. I got invited to an onsite interview in their offices in Oxford Circus. It started with a 1-hour whiteboard design exercise on scalable web architecture, followed by a shorter debugging test. The debugging test was easy enough, but the design exercise covers pretty much EVERYTHING, so it's much harder. They invited me to have lunch with the rest of the people in the company which I thought was quite nice. I had a quick chat with the CTO at the end and that's about it.
I didn't get the job, but I had a nice time at their offices and appreciated they gave me some feedback on what I could improve.
Something I didn't like was their job description not being accurate enough. It basically said "need to know how to program in two languages, bonus points if one is Python" when they are obviously asking for much more than that.
