Mission: We are passionate about solving challenges that will fundamentally shape the future of technology.
I have been working at Kong full-time (More than a year)
Kong is a totally fun place to work. Don't get me wrong, you will always be busy, but you'll be busy doing really fun and groundbreaking stuff.
As someone who covers support tickets, whenever I'm not sure about something or need a deeper explanation, there is always someone available to help. This really makes my role much easier.
I also really like how the customers consider themselves partners. I think a lot of that comes from our Open Source background.
Speaking of Open Source, lots of Open Source companies allow you to see the code but never accept PRs from nonemployees. Not at all the case with Kong. Kong really cares about its community members and that really goes a long way.
Kong's employees are spread out the entire globe. Generally speaking, this is a good thing.
I have it listed under Cons though because it does mean that there are times you'll want to ask a specific person a question, but know they won't be awake for while.
I applied online. I interviewed at Kong.
It was a very informal process but the employees were very helpful. I applied when I was relatively young and unexperienced. They stressed the large responsibilities of interns and how they were a small shop operation.
