We do it together, celebrating accomplishments along the way and giving recognition where it’s due. When you join Telenav, you join a team devoted to helping, supporting, and encouraging each other.
Our vision is to become the global leader in transforming life on the go!
I have been working at Telenav full-time (More than 5 years)
We have a solid, engineering-driven organization and we have stuck with it and nearly completed a difficult multi-year turn-around now, which means things are getting exciting and will get more exciting soon. I've been at Telenav longer than any other company by far and they've treated me quite well the whole time. I like how open people are to new ideas and technologies and mapping and OSM are a lot of fun. There's tremendous opportunity to make a mark. And in spite of what people assume about competing with Apple and Google, we continue to win deals against them and the not too distant future looks bright to me.
It can take work and communication skills to get things done in a global enterprise operating in several time zones. You really have to take initiative here and also you have to ask for what you want. It's great for the independently motivated, but probably hard for those who need a lot of oversight.
Advice to Management
Keep focused on profitability. Keep it up.
I applied online. I interviewed at Telenav.
The interview was long and grueling. It lasted 5 hours and I interviewed with no fewer than 5 people, one of them from another state via Skype. It included typical interview questions (tell us about your experience...), brain teasers and a test of writing Python code.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
