I have been working at Scaleway full-time
good salary, nice top management
Lots of copying of other leading businesses in their field ; lack of proper organization and innovation
Advice to Management
More precision and some operational excellence would be advisable - even for a hyperscaler. A proper foundation can avoid future disasters. Is is really possible to build a world class business on over-enthusiasm ?
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Scaleway (Paris (France)) in December 2017.
Very well organized hiring process in a form of entry game. You spend the whole day on site, by the end of the day you get an answer. At least it was the common practice during a mass hiring round at the end of 2017.
From the formal point of view, there was nothing extremely tough. No quazi-google style multistage technical tests full of dumb questions. No telephone interviews, no "yes but now but wait a bit" and all that classic hiring inconvenience. Just a single doodle to schedule your day (normally Friday or Sunday), and slack chat to ask organizational questions, if any. There is a lot of Scaleway staff in this chat, so answers come very fast.
There were two games on the way. Fist, I needed to find their office myself. Than an escape game with other candidates in the morning of your interview day. Nothing earth-breaking, though it took some effort to find the address.
After the escape game, lunch and a little excursion around the site, I had a series (like 4 or 5) of face-to-face interviews with different managers, HR, and CEO.
The whole processes took about three weeks from the online application to the offer, including about a week-long reply to the initial application and the scheduled standby until my interview day (I couldn't chose the closest Friday).
My overall impressions is very good.
