    Pros

    This company offers great benefits that make you want to work hard for the company. They allow you to make bold mistakes for the sake of learning to build the company. They really want to create change in the financial industry and are not there to create a solution that people will buy as the focus.

    Cons

    It's a sink-or-swim environment. You have to figure out how to better the position you are in and figure out how to do it in an innovative way. Their health benefits are not the greatest.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lehi, UT
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MX (Lehi, UT).

    Interview

    The interviews are devoid of process. If they have one, it definitely isn't apparent. Every time I asked "what are the steps from here?" no one seemed to know. That could be because it's a small company and they still haven't figured it out, but it also seems likely as part of the company culture. They definitely seem to thrive in an environment where nothing is planned in advance.

    I had three interviews all together and a lunch with the engineers. The questions were simple, and mostly to gauge my experience and interests. It seems like they look more for people who fit into their culture rather than those with a lot of experience. The whole process was very chill and random, usually with a week before the next contact about the next interview.

    While the company seems to have a great outlook and a vision for a product they truly believe in, and that I also believe in, it really boiled down to a few things.

    1. Their team dynamic just seemed really different and didn't give me a sense of worth like some other companies did. While their interview questions were easy, I got the feeling like they were asking "are you up to the challenge of proving yourself?" instead of "do you feel like you can contribute to this great cause? If so, we would love to have you and we will be there supporting you in our mutual success." While some of you may like that, I definitely didn't like the idea of a constant "proving grounds" as my workplace.

    2. The offer they gave me was actually insulting more than anything. It was over 60% lower than what other places in the area are offering and that's what REALLY gave me the feeling of not wanting to work there. If they didn't value the talents and experience that I had to offer to the company enough that they couldn't even give me a competitive offer, then I knew they wouldn't value me as an employee. If you actually care about what you're getting paid, then I give you this knowledge to gauge whether or not you should take the time to work here.

    All in all, the experience was random and long. The offer was absolutely dreadful. The company itself seems really awesome and I really like their product. I think I could have been persuaded to join them if the offer was competitive with the market and my experience, but there are other companies with similar benefits that offer more to their employees.
