    I have been working at Daxko full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Since starting my tenure at Daxko 5 years ago, I've experienced many changes throughout the company. From acquisitions to role changes to leadership moves to simple desk rearranging, our sense of an open, forward-thinking culture and team member impact has been laser focused. The people at Daxko have made every change and milestone infinitely better and more rewarding. Our leadership team is comprised of dynamic leaders that seek to not only grow the business but, most importantly, grow and develop team members. There's amazing perks like flexible PTO, a one-month sabbatical, gym membership reimbursement, the ability to work remotely, casual dress, innovative office space and many more! Daxko is an amazing company to work--not only due to the company itself but due to the people that make the organization.

    Cons

    Like they say, hindsight is 20/20, and Daxko's leadership team continues to learn to embrace change and accept feedback in order to not repeat mistakes in the future. If you're not accepting of face-paced change, Daxko is not the place for you. Change is inevitable, but it's especially true at an ever-evolving technology company like Daxko. Resistance to change or lack of grit are two forms of kryptonite at Daxko. Without the ability to champion change while maintaining grit and tenacity, you're likely to not succeed here.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Daxko (Birmingham, AL) in July 2019.

    Interview

    It took a few applications, in addition to attending an open house event, for my resume to get noticed. When that happened, the first phase consisted of a pair of phone interviews with the recruiter and the hiring manager. The main interview (in-person) included a coding presentation (the task is given ahead of time, you work on it for however many days until your interview date) followed by a traditional back-and-forth, conversational interview.

    I was left with the impression that the team really wants to make the effort to make a thorough evaluation of both hard and soft skills.
