Benefits & Perks
Culture & Community
I have been working at KUBRA full-time (More than a year)
Great office space in Tempe with excellent perks like lunch room with drinks, food trucks once a week. Even after Canadian buyout, the company still provides a baseline health care plan at no cost, which is awesome. Good support for continuing education and learning at conferences and workshops to make the team better. Engineering-driven atmosphere is not afraid of adopting new technologies and techniques, which is important for a software business.
Besides customers, the two software offices (Tempe & Mississauga) don't have a ton in common. The Canadian office is all Microsoft software development, very old-school server hosting practices and they do payment processing (must deal with PCI auditing). On the other hand it seems like Tempe seeks to be on the cutting edge, so they have been on AWS for years, with all development systems cloud-based and makes efforts to hunt down the most cost-effective solutions at all costs. It seems a bit like occasionally the Canadian office thinks about ways to kill the Tempe culture, which would be unfortunate, because jobs aren't hard to come by in Phoenix and in a software business - the people are the business.
Advice to Management
Provide more feedback about how the business is performing, which projects are high-priority, and how individuals can help make the product more lucrative for the sales team to do their job. There is definitely a lack of measurement and goal-based project management. Tools like Jira are great IF you use them properly. You can't get historical data about the validity of task estimates if time is not generally being tracked directly to Jira tasks.
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at KUBRA (Coppell, TX).
Found this job on a Job Fair.
Face to face interview with OOP questions
Had to make code to reverse a word
Team leaders make the interview and if they like you, they call the Director.
