    When the company was series A, the benefits weren't the best, office location wasn't the greatest, etc. Now we are in our Series B and leadership has improved all of these things which is great.

    Product Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FOSSA.

    Interview

    The lead product designer had 3 internships after he just got of school , before he became the lead designer. But he told me he had experiences in a few top technology company before he came to Fossa, he regularly responded my questions with an nonchalant "I don't know" when I asked him " how do you work as a sole designer" or " how do you work with engineer". The experience and moral /ethics are low in here.
