    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Kite.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - ML models are part of the core product, having good and reliable models is a priority
    - Extracting dataset from GitHub allows having a lot of clean data in big quantity
    - Really good benefits (health, events, equipment/computers)
    - Highly skilled team, in term of engineering, ML theory, and organization
    - Good culture, lot of events with the whole company, that's really helpful to know each other well and to work together efficiently

    Cons

    - Working with source code raises a lot of privacy concern that we have to be careful about
    - Not that much else (maybe the building lack a bit of man bathroom stall, but definitely not a big issue! )

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give good visibility to employees about the incoming roadmap. Working on developer tools allow for a pretty wide range of features and it's important to continue to communicate well on which one we want to invest time in!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kite.com (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    A technical phone screen with a coding problem and another phone call discussing the company/role and my background. Then an onsite including several one on one interviews including a whiteboard coding problem, several laptop coding problems, verbal technical questions, and behavioral questions. Met most of the engineering team and spoke with several engineers at length about my background/work experience and projects and engineering at Kite. Spoke with CEO about Kite's vision/product roadmap, the roles that were being filled and how I would fit in. Shortly after this onsite, I was extended an offer. I then visited the office again and also had some other one on one coffee chats and phone calls with folks on the team.
