I worked at Sourcefire full-time (More than 3 years)
Since Sourcefire no longer exists I am writing this as a memorial to the company.
-free lunches everyday
-free vending machine drinks
-dogs in the office
-casual all week long
-snorty calendar and mascot
-great and fast paced learning experience
-being bought by Cisco. The majority of people are now at Tenable. So if you want to work for Sourcefire 2.0, go to Tenable.
Advice to Management
I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sourcefire (Columbia, MD) in January 2012.
6 engineers from different teams UI/Database/snort/networking/support/maintenance asked to write code, asked language and data structure questions. Asked general networking questions, knowledge of protocols. Schedule preference, desired level of involvement in customer issues.
