    Pros

    Having worked for this company for +20 years, the culture has never been better! We have Career Pathways so we can attract and retain talent from hire to retire

    How do we touch more educators and students so we can continue to make a phenomenal impact on their future?

    Advice to Management

    My experience with leadership has been one of complete respect, and quite frankly awe, for the members we have on our leadership team and the knowledge that we have as a collective team. Continue with being mission-driven-having our pulse on the customer at all time to ensure that we are meeting their needs.

    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Renaissance Learning (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied at U of M job fair. I was contacted a month later for an on-site interview. Interview consisted of a hard skills testing session with 3 engineers. We discussed how to implement an AI to play battleship. Wrote a lot of pseudo code, was mostly centered on problem solving skills.
    Second interview was with the competency manager. Mostly talked about personal attitude towards coding and work in general. The goal seemed to be to see if I would be a fit for the sort of office culture they were trying to cultivate.
