    I have been working at Kinesis full-time (More than a year)


    Kinesis got everything that's important about work right. There's enormous investment in the team and culture, and enthusiasm for doing outstanding work for right-fit clients. We have solid processes, and we're always open to evolving them. It's the one place where I found everyone, including leadership, geek out about what actually makes work better and putting it into action. If you're reading about Kinesis and thinking it might be too good to be true, I want you to know that you're probably seeing an accurate representation. It really is an awesome company to be part of.


    I have not found any.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Kinesis in December 2019.


    First interview was with two employees, one person with the same position I was interviewing for and the other with a more operational role. It was a nice conversational interview that felt like it went well.

    The next day got an email back for a second interview with the CEO and another employee of the same role I was interviewing.

    I found out at the interview it was just going to be and the CEO 1 on 1 because the other employee was sick.

    We had a long conversation where he really took the time to get to know my 'origin story' and reflection on my experience.

    Both interviews took place in the couple weeks before the Christmas holidays so I didn't hear they were moving on for a little over 3 weeks after the second interview.
