    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pebble.

    Interview

    I applied online because I was really interested in the smart watch industry and loved Pebble's value proposition. I applied when the position was initially something else, but they changed the account responsibility and still called me since my resume was in their system.

    The recruiter was personable and very responsive, and immediately gave me a good impression of the company. I had a phone screening with her, then was scheduled for a call with the hiring manager the next day. The hiring manager also was personable and asked good questions mostly dealing with my past experience and "how have you managed" type questions.

    I got a call the next day asking if I could fly up to Redwood City the following week, and I had back to back interviews where I met about 8 people. The entire team seemed smart, enthusiastic, and very upfront about the start up (i.e. possibly chaotic) nature of Pebble's day to day. Having been in hectic environments before, that didn't faze me, but I appreciated that the team was very forthcoming and I did feel they wanted to make sure it was a good cultural fit for both sides.

    A few days went by after my in person interviews, and I got a nice, quick email from the recruiter just noting they were still deciding. Again, I was impressed because recruiters often go radio silent and never give updates. After a week, I followed up to see where they were in their process. About an hour after my e-mail, I got a call from the recruiter who let me know the team liked me, but they decided to go with another candidate and had just made the decision. I did think I had a good chance of being offered the position, but ultimately they went with someone local who had more experience with their distributors.

    I was very, very impressed that the recruiter called me. In this day and age, where recruiters/companies sometimes don't even send the canned email "we went with someone else, but good luck" response, for the recruiter to call in person and give disappointing news was testament that Pebble treats people like people. It's never easy to give someone bad news, and not only did the recruiter do that, but she gave me some good feedback.

    I also emailed the hiring manager thanking her for her time, and she sent me a very kind and encouraging email in reply.

    All in all, a stellar experience, and I wish the team at Pebble the best.
