I have been working at Solvvy full-time (Less than a year)
Lots to like here: deep, hard to duplicate technology but wrapped into a business application that is easy to package and sell . Really good opportunities for career growth since you are literally building everything with the team; Great customer list for such an early-stage company (the names are kind of insane). Open, transparent culture - you will be involved in all key decisions if you want to be; Strong founding team that mixes deep engineering backgrounds (PHDs from CMU) with a very experienced SaaS CEO; really great group of people; should be a big market too, so lots to like thus far...
Palo Alto location may be tough from some SF locations (not sure when/if they will move further north but i'm sure it has to happen); this isn't the place if you are into free massages and stuff, the focus is on building the company not perks; Also you have to learn quickly and teach yourself, everyone is running fast; Be prepared to work hard but it's not mind-numbing boring work either..
Advice to Management
Can you keep the good stuff as you scale it? Build more new hire onboarding so people get up to speed faster. Do more PR, this is a hot company, not many of my friends know that!
