I have been working at Nominum full-time (More than 5 years)
Important, high demand products, interesting applications that can use them. Very smart developers. Small company atmosphere with private financing gives freedoms that are uncommon in software development.
Small company has small company benefit plans, understaffed severely for the promises made to customers. Insufficient barriers to using all staff for sales activities and then trying to hold to existing deadlines. Few equity events for common staff - no bonus plan, no revenue sharing. Unknown time to becoming liquid with any equity that is available.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nominum (Redwood City, CA) in May 2015.
Interviewer's are very cool and good. I don't know what happened all of the sudden they rejected me after 3 interviews. I thought I was doing very good. May be they are not intended to hire anybody.
