Pros

Hurricane Electric was just an excellent place for me to begin my career in tech. For me, there was a pretty steep learning curve in the beginning as I had basically no experience in support,

Cons

My experience at HE was great, and I'd like to stress that for me, the pros far outweighed any cons. That said, probably my biggest issue with the job was the lack of impactful work. I was frequently

  1. Mathematician Web Developer Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hurricane Electric (Santa Clara, CA) in Aug 2021

    Interview

    One of their staff contacted me about coming on site to take a basic skills test. It was like 150-200 questions. NOTHING PROGRAMMING RELATED.

    After reading the reviews here I spent 4 days learning Perl, and of course, no Perl. I was given a grammar test, a simple math test (Algebra 1) and a simple mechanics test that a middle schooler could pass.


    This was 7 weeks ago, no one has reached back out to me. I'm confident I scored above 90% on the test. Don't waist your time here. Don't go.
