I worked at Kosmix full-time (More than 3 years)
Deep technical talent
High work ethic
None, really. The place was great before its acquisition by Wal-Mart.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kosmix (Mountain View, CA) in November 2011.
Very casual and straight forward, Resume process forwarded through friend and then directly to current manager who called to set up an on-site Interview
