Mission: We exist to provide an abnormal atmosphere where exceptional strides can be taken. We care about culture, employee development, constructive processes, and actually having fun. Department lines are blurred, office doors hardly exist and laughter roars. We're ...
I have been working at Red Nova Labs full-time (More than 3 years)
Start-ups fail. Those that do succeed and grow into a full-fledged company often lose the start-up culture that it began with. This company has somehow kept that start-up vibe.
It’s certainly had it’s seasons of change. But those changes have brought more business growth, better employee benefits, and the best talent in Kansas City.
Follow these guidelines to a successful career at this company:
1. Show up on time
2. Grab a drink from THAT barista mentioned in the complaint below.
3. Wear multiple hats and know that each day brings a new task at hand.
4. Speak to upper management when you have issues/concerns.
Developer turnover rate is a constant battle.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Red Nova Labs in February 2017.
The process was generally professional and fast. There were two rounds of interviews. The first round was with a Senior Software Developer and their CEO, and it was a mix between behavioral and some knowledge-based technical questions, touching the surface of projects, web technologies, data structures, and algorithms. The second round was their CTO and it was a little more in-depth than first round but wasn't difficult. Just know you stuff and you'll be good.
We moved forward quickly and they extended an offer a day after the second round of interview. We agreed that I will have two weeks to accept the offer, but the next week they sent an email saying they found another candidate, and thus my offer letter was invalidated - even though the offer letter's deadline explicitly said it was due in two weeks. I personally have never experienced things like this. While it is perfectly legal to do, I doubt it is really ethical/professional to rescind offers like this.
