    I worked at Resonate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Genuinely transformative product - very different from other offerings in the market, both visually and functionally. Dynamic company culture with lots of opportunities for growth. Stable senior leadership (including three core founders) over many years. Positioned for growth in the coming years.

    Cons

    Demanding timelines for product releases. Suburban HQ hard to reach for folks who want to live in DC.

    Advice to Management

    Develop more partnerships in the industry to decrease barriers to customer adoption. Make it easier for DC-based folks to use the downtown office.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Resonate.

    Interview

    A class act.

    Started with a 1:1 phone call with the hiring manager, Jason. Right away I felt supported and part of the team - it was a very productive but normal call. I felt comfortable to ask tough questions along with an ease to discuss some of the less fortune parts of my history with additional comments of praise and support as I discussed myself. It's almost safe to say... this is how all interview calls should go.

    Although the hiring manager used a consultant to find me, everything after that first phone call was very much personal and as if I submitted my resume or we were old colleagues.

    The hiring manager and myself worked very little through the agency and kept things very human and personal. Jason did a good job communicating directly with me and reporting back to the agent vs the usual other-way around. Again, another human moment.

    They brought me in for a second in-person interview at the Reston offices. Nice building, nice offices... business casual. A suite would have been too much (for those wondering)

    I was able to meet with most of the product team. The VP through the Engineering team. They all came in separately and again... the team was personable, kind, polite and very engaged. I felt supported right away - even when the nervousness of an interview provided a brain-fart or two.

    The interview questions were challenging and the team welcomed discussion, Looking back, taking advantage of the open dialogue but making sure not to ramble would have been best. It was easy to get a little too comfortable - FYI (which is a good thing)

    The team was transparent about the product, challenges, wins, past, present and future from what I could tell. In short - this interview will be my template for how I interview future candidates. Laid back, honest and productive. It was refreshing.

    I think I was scheduled for 1.5 hours and ended up taking 3.5 - most of that was probably my fault. This team is real cool - a class act.

    Interview Questions

    • The engineering problem walk through - I was trying to pull direction from him while he was trying to see how I break down problems. Very interesting and most importantly effective approach.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Nothing unusual - if anything it was much more transparent than expected.
