    At this moment no cons, keep in mind though Peoplenet is a growing company so it's not perfect.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minnetonka, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Trimble Transportation (Minnetonka, MN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online for a senior software engineer position. I was informed that they required more years of experience for that position, but they offered a different, lower software engineer position. After a cursory glance, the other position looked fair, not very exciting, but good enough to go in for an interview.

    They kept in touch and eventually invited me come in for an interview. Immediately they informed me that the deal had changed yet again, they had re-defined the position I was applying for once more. At first, I was put off. The interview was kind of strange in that they were spending more time selling themselves to me rather than the other way around. They actually spent a lot of time explaining to me how their product and systems work. They also mentioned that they had read my blog and liked some articles I had posted.

    But as they explained it to me, I was intrigued. This time they were presenting me with a hybrid Dev Ops / Internal Tools Development role with decent pay. It sounded like a good fit for me plus a chance to learn some new stuff.
