    Advice to Management

    I'm going to use this space to give advice to job applicants. This is a great company to learn more about the education sphere and the SaaS world. The staff is pretty young and energetic. We are all really friendly and have a great culture that encourages asking questions and trying to improve every aspect of what we do. If you're passionate about education and improving opportunities for students, you'll fit in great!

    Interview

    Interview process was very strange. Started with a normal screening phone call which led to a phone interview. However, after this things got strange. The company requires everyone to take a personality assessment. Once the assessment was complete they sent me a case study to prepare and present during an onsite interview. There was very little detail provided in the case study materials. Therefore, I spent a great deal of time trying to figure out how much of the business case I should make up for the sake of being able to present a meaningful presentation or if I should just make some basic assumptions. To me this was way too much work ahead of an interview and I almost considered not pursue. My guess is that they will lose some good candidates in the future if this continues. Overall though the team I met with was pretty decent. I only write this review to help management realize how their screening process may seem like a good idea will eventually hurt them down the road.

    Interview Questions

    • You work for a five-year old SaaS company named Silky which just completed a break-even 2017 with $5M in GAAP revenues across 250 customers and ended the year with $1.5M in the bank. The company has an 88% customer renewal rate, net negative churn of 110%, and would like to grow 50% in 2018.
      Making any assumptions you need to, build a three year forecast for the business. Be prepared to explain your model and the assumptions you made.
      Prepare a 5-10 minute presentation to the Board of Directors of your forecast and the related forecasted financials for 2018 including the Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Statement of Cash Flows. Also include any key business or SaaS metrics in your summary.
      You have also been told the board wants to know how trying to grow more aggressively (75%) would impact the cash needs of the business, so be prepared to discuss a more aggressive growth scenario with the board.   Answer Question
