When I was interviewed by the CEO, he told me "I want people who are willing to work twice as hard as they have before to make four times more money." That's pretty much how Madrivo operates. They expect hard work, but it is handsomely rewarded. Great work/life balance, positive atmosphere with a fancy zen-garden of an office, and a team who all wants you to succeed. The team is small enough that there is no inter-competition.
The hiring process is a bit of a pain. You'll probably go through at least two or three phone interviews before you come in for an in person interview series. Then there's the background check and - for some positions - the handwriting analysis. It all pays off, though, because it's how they maintain their corporate culture and ensure you're going to fit in before they bring you onboard.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work. I've never worked with a team that was so happy to work so hard - and then still managed to go home pretty-dang-close to on time every single day. People assume working harder means working longer -- thanks for proving that isn't always true.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Madrivo (Las Vegas, NV) in January 2015.
I was really excited about working at Madrivo since I did my research and it sounded like a positive, supportive company to work for. I was phone screened by the hiring manager more than once and unfortunately, I was shocked that it felt more like an aggressive interrogation both times. This made the interview process counterproductive; if anything, other qualified candidates were probably scared away by the process. Responsibilities that were not covered in the job description suddenly became important during each phone screen. The hiring manager conducted the interviews through speaker phone, which made it very hard to hear and I was drilled with the same questions on the second call. The starting salary is way below industry average but I was willing to work hard and show my value.
