Advice to Management
Recognize the rapid rate of growth, hire people to fill out the org chart to keep teams managed, organized, and effective.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DirectDefense (Englewood, CO) in March 2017.
The interview process was very informal. It was more like they're looking for bodies to fill slots than they are to find cybersecurity professionals. There were only a coupld of short (<30 minute) phone interviews and then I was offered a position. The questions were very basic and really didn't ask about cybersecurity experience.
