    Pros

    Fog Creek is as great a place to work as you've heard. The company was founded on treating people well, and that DNA has been extended into the two spin-off companies, StackOverflow and Trello. The founders are supportive, transparent, and generous.

    Cons

    Fog Creek is all about self-direction, and so if you're a little lost, or your manager is not deeply connected to the company direction and leadership, you can drift a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to seeing where you take HyperDev!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fog Creek Software (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    A hot mess. I went through a few rounds and never spoke to anyone from the sales team or anyone who even knew anything about a sales cycle. There were two test rounds back to back. The first was to write a few programs while someone watched. None of the programs matched the kind of work in the job description. The second test was to write an e-mail and then troubleshoot an SMTP server while someone watched. I have no idea how any of this relates to sales or demos or presentations or anything else the job description talked about. Questions to HR asking about this were returned with answers that were less than helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • Write a program to determine is a point is in a triangle where you only know two points of the triangle.   1 Answer
