I have been working at Novus Partners full-time
I've had a wonderful experience with Novus thus far. Coming from Google where the interview process is rather excessive, Novus met the bar that Google sets in a more efficient manner (my interview timeline was a month). Typically interviews consist of 4-5 interviews, an assessment, as well as reference checks and standard background check. You'll connect with multiple team members to provide you with insight into the different departments, as well as how the company works cross-functionally. A great experience!
I'm happy with every aspect.

Made initial contact with recruiters at career fair. Novus followed up via email to schedule a programming test. Test was Java specific, but recruiters stated Novus uses Java and Scala.
