I have been working at Sencha full-time
Sencha has some of the smartest and easiest to work with developers you'll find anywhere. Their products are widely used and highly regarded. As a developer you are given the latitude to solve problems the way you feel is best and are encouraged to innovate. Developers are supported with top of the line gear and tools. No fuss or corporate bureaucracy.
Building a team of such great developers wouldn't be possible at a single site. Because of this sencha is very spread out across the US and Europe. You'll need to be comfortable working with people remotely over chats and hangouts. On the plus side this means that Sencha is very flexible with working from home.
I applied online. I interviewed at Sencha (New York, NY) in August 2015.
The most unprofessional "Director of Sales" I have ever met. I applied through LinkedIn and received an email asking if I'd be available on the following Friday, Monday and Tuesday for a phone interview. I said Monday works best at 11-4, no email back no response. I then assumed she would call but no call or email, thought that was the end of that and left it alone. But nope, she emails me back two days later completely disregarding the prior email she had sent me for the first phone interview and asks again if I'd be available during Monday Tuesday at certain times. I bit the bullet and said Tuesday at 12:30, 15 minutes later a rsvp is sent from her locking in the phone interview through google calendar/hangout. Cool, she locked it in....but nope she doesn't call for the 12:30-1:00 pm phone interview which I followed up asking if there was a schedule conflict but she later emails me saying sorry she missed it and wanted to schedule again on Friday the same time. I believe in Sencha as a company and the product is great, so I ignored my gut feeling and said okay. Again, no phone call, I'd rather not work under someone so disorganized and unprofessional.
