Mission: SS8 supplies Enterprises, Governments, and Service Providers with Communications Analytics and Network Forensics solutions, called Communications insight.
Before coming to SS8, I worked for a large fortune 100 company. My job was very focused in one aspect of software engineering. I wanted to have broader exposure to different aspects of product development and deployment along with growth and learning opportunities. SS8 provided this for me. The management team is friendly and enjoys helping employees with their career growth. I am in favor of working smarter instead of working harder, and I am glad that my manager and our COO believe the same.
I would like more group lunches. We have free healthy snacks. Free drinks would be nice.
Advice to Management
I welcome the new changes initiated by the executive management team. SS8 is becoming a more fun place to work.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SS8 Networks in August 2012.
I sent in my resume and a day later I received a call to come in for an interview. I went in and met with three different people. One of them was the hiring manager and the other two were people I'd be working with if I got the position. The interview took less than an hour and thirty minutes. The people that I talked to were friendly. I was told that I would be contacted by them by the end of the following week regarding whether I got the position or not. What happened next was a little disappointing. Almost two weeks had past and I still hadn't heard back from them, so I was getting anxious. In the meantime I was applying for other jobs. One of the jobs I applied for used Jobvite (which SS8 uses) and on there is how I learned that I was not chosen for the job since the status next to my job application changed to "not selected'. Had I not checked Jobvite I would not know what had happened seeing as it has been almost a month and I have not received an email or phone call from them. I would have appreciated at least an email letting me know they have chosen another candidate since I came in for a rather long interview. Other than that issue, I didn't really have in problems with the company. They seem to value a good work-life balance.
