    I have been working at SmartDrive Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -In the year I've been here, we've augmented and enhanced the engineering and product teams considerably, and are working on the all right things.
    -we have a modern stack in public cloud that is being built as rapidly as possible to stay ahead of our scale growth curve
    - Our hardware is impressive and opens so many possibilities with 100k+ of them in connected vehicles around the country and globe
    - The team is cohesive with cross-functional collaboration improving all of the time
    - Our new dog-friendly office and campus are fantastic and fun

    Cons

    - A big hardware refresh and total overhaul of backend systems is hard work! lots to do and some stress because we all want to move faster and ensure the company succeeds long into the future

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring and investing in top people!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SmartDrive Systems in June 2014.

    Interview

    Sent in a resume through my school career website. Received an email the next day requesting a phone interview. It was supposed to be an hour but only lasted half an hour, probably because I didn't do very well. The questions weren't hard but the interviewer was not really clear on what he seemed to expect from the questions... also very awkward process. From what I remember, there was a question about the use of global or static variables, not too difficult. The interview was really uncomfortable and awkward overall, particularly because the questions were worded ...
