    I have been working at Tigerspike full-time

    Pros

    I work at another office location, but being that it's a global company you have the opportunity to travel to other offices. And I had the opportunity to work with the Japan office. Because it's global, there is sense of familiarity, yet at the same time it's quite unique at the same time; the people, culture and space.

    I really enjoyed working with my coworkers there. Everyone was very professional with one another. And you get a sense that you are cared for as an individual and not just for the work you output. I was able to learn a lot from the way our Japanese branch works and apply it back to my home branch.

    Cons

    There were not any I could think of

    Tech Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tigerspike (New York, NY) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I interviewed for Tech Lead position for their NY office. The process took about a month. Screening call (the recruiter was based in Europe) so it was on unusual hours. First call was to find out about my background and the position itself, I have to say that when we spoke about the compensation it was a bit disappointing to hear about the low salary they offer for the position but I liked their PTO because it was generous and at this stage of my life it’s appreciated. They followed by sending me a technical challenge which was interesting because it was challenging for me and was able to complete it to the best of my abilities. I completed the small project in about 5 days (8-10 hours of my time). I feel like I did more than what I was asked, deployed the application, which is currently running on its domain. By the way I have to remark on something because this feedback will start getting bad. They have been asking for the same technical test for years, as you can find solutions and similar projects on several repos. I actually did not care at the beginning because I did it myself but if you think about it, that says something about the lack of Tech leadership. After submitting my technical test, I received feedback that I should interview with a Tech Lead and a Director. The call lasted about an hour, I really enjoyed talking to the 2 of them, nothing difficult, but I felt that the role was changing from Tech Lead to more Consultant/Project Manager/Account manager as I was getting more hypothetical questions for scenarios of client projects and I know this is what it was because I have been a consultant 2 times in the past.

    After the 2nd call, I got feedback that I will have a final interview. The 3rd interview did not go so well. The call started by a short common introduction of myself, and then immediately all the managerial/product owner hypothetical questions started. Keep in mind the position was for a Tech Lead. Worst part was the pedant attitude of 2 of the interviewers (Some Project Manager and Director of Strategy/Design) was all about how do you keep a customer happy. For example how do help a customer who does not know what to build, does not have any requirements but wants to start a project. I mean seriously ? I am not a salesman, you ask the client to get clear requirements first and then start planning the project. And then other typical question when they don’t have anything to ask because they find out that your resume is technical and can’t engage with you so they ask... “it looks like you only last 1-2 years in your previous employments”, can you tell me why? I mean, first of all developers/engineers are always wanted and will look for better employment if companies do not value them period and also personal matters that might make you change jobs. In the end, it was a disappointing interview, because I felt like the 2 pedant interviewers were not going to be working close with me anyways. It showed that they don’t know what they want and in their way of doing consultancy was all about pleasing the customer but would not take employees opinion at all. Finally, I never received feedback about the recruitment process or decision, but decided to leave one for them here.

It is certainly not easy being thrown in the deep end for both the Talent Acquisition and Onboarding team, but we managed. In this blog, we will hear from our new employees who have been remotely onboarded at Tigerspike around the world.
