    I have been working at Red Nova Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Developer turnover rate is a constant battle.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Red Nova Labs in February 2017.

    Interview

    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.
