    I have been working at IXL Learning full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    IXL Learning is a technology company in the first place, and has established very good standards for coding conventions, engineering principles, internal tools, etc. You definitely get the chance to grow yourself to become a better engineer.

    In addition, you'll have smart and friendly coworkers, good work life balance, great product, and challenging projects to work on. These are what you'll get at IXL, but should never take for granted.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and bring the best talents!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IXL Learning.

    Interview

    An online application followed by a Hackerrank coding challenge. The challenge was rather easy to complete. I passed all checks, but was sent a scripted rejected letter after a couple days. Very frustrating that they don't let candidates understand the space and time complexity requirements they are looking for. That's a very basic and standard feature of these Hackerrank challenges, that should be a part of the test cases.
