A mission-driven company with ground-breaking technology. Smart, passionate, conscientious, and fun people working to make a difference. You can get great experience, as long as you are willing to roll up your sleeves.
Everyone works hard, so people trying to coast or to just collect a paycheck with minimal effort would not be happy here. Also, this company is trying to do something new and challenging. Like all pioneering journeys, there's risk of more bumps in the road ahead.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Solazyme.
Interviews are one on one sessions set up with up to six people from various departments. Because of the variety of interviewers, what you are asked can range from very generic interview questions(HR) to very in-depth technical skills test question to hosting a presentation in front of groups describing previous projects you've worked on.
