    Every company knows the future is digital, but that doesn’t mean they have the resources to get there.
    Developing a mobile app can take an army of coders, UX/UI designers and copious amounts of time. Smaller companies aren’t often built for that, while larger ones may be looking for a faster solution.
    Enter, Kony.

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

    Pros

    Lots of growth bring many activities, keep the work full and alive. If you like being busy with work that is satisfactory for you, Kony is it.

    Cons

    There are growing pains as the company bringing in many new clients. Sometime keeping things prioritized is not enough. Extra effort is needed but you are well compensated. 401k has no matching. There aren't many promotions. Formal training yearly is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kony (Austin, TX) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I had a series of interviews with key leaders in the company; all interviews were very professional; I was impressed by the depth of knowledge and the overall quality of the interviews; they all made them seem more of a relaxed, mutual exchange of information. I had a series of interviews over the phone, and a final in-person interview in Austin. The process took longer because I interviewed with different areas of the company for different positions.
