"Awesome Company, Awesome Opportunity"

Approves of CEO


Easy vision to get behind. Amazing collaborative culture. Fast paced work and well led teams. Meaningful projects and nice people.


With so much opportunity we had too many projects going on at once. Since we're still a start up - first product will be released later this year - we needed to focus on delivering the core truck

Advice to Management

Stay on the new course. Keep up the communication. With so many people working from home, it's easy to lose track of all the great things happening here.

    Process was smooth, three interviews, last with upper management. Everything ran smooth, the recruiter is a very nice guy. Be well prepared for the technical aspect of the interview as people here know their stuff. The HQ are in par with other startups.

    How do you resolve upper management issues.
