    I have been working at Skuid full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Skuid has employed some of the best talent I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

    Everyone from HR, to Finance, to QA have optimized their own processes to streamline your dealings with them. Frankly, I don't know how they've done it, but there's not a person there I dislike, and wouldn't be willing to grab a drink with. It has a lot of the efficiencies I would expect at a much larger company, but minus a lot of the slow moving cruft. They also have a focus on growing their people and letting them branch out.

    Engineers have several layers of protection from interruptions to try and allow maximal deep work. And in engineering there is a focus on quality where we build things to last, and automate whatever we can fairly aggressively to keep our work cycles tight. State of the art CI/CD processes in place. They've got their act together.

    Great place to work and grow as an engineer. What the engineering department lacks in headcount they often make up for in average engineer impact.

    Can only recall one or two times working late was necessary in about three years of working here due to critical customer issues.

    They are fine with you often working remote, or in some special cases - full-time remote. 9-5 is not a requirement, just that the work gets done in a reasonable time.

    Cons

    Recent acquisition of the company (Like 5 months ago) has added a bit of uncertainty to the company moving forward. Though the acquirer seems to be decent as far as giant corps. go. A lot of our fate now lies in their hands, and no one is totally sure yet what that will mean longer term. Only time will tell.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say considering offering full-time remote positions to widen the net of skilled engineering applicants may be a good idea. All of engineering works remote ~50% of the time anyway and there are good folks out there. If we can't compete with a FAANG on salary, or even traditional benefits, maybe we could offer the flexibility they won't, which is full-time remote.

    Anyway, keep it up!

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chattanooga, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Skuid (Chattanooga, TN) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was an overall positive experience.

    Initially, it was a one on one video call that lasted about 30 to 45 minutes where a few technical questions were asked. The next day, I got emailed from the same interviewer giving me instructions on what to do for a take home coding exercise. I'd say that the coding exercise was an beginner/intermediate level. The interviewer stressed that time was a factor (a couple of hours) in the coding exercise. I had sent the repository of my finished repository, and awaited further instructions.

    The following week, they had me come in for an in-person interview! It was a group panel of 4 developers, and the interview was like most of the software engineer interviews I've been a part of. Half of the interview was filled with technical questions to see how I worked through problems, and the other half was questions to see if I was the right personality fit.
