    I have been working at Valimail full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Teamwork is emphasized over individual wins or losses. There is a high level of energy and pride among the people. Everyone works hard and the focus is on a world-class product that makes customers more secure. In a security market that is chasing after AI/ML and will resort to selling snake oil, Valimail has kept true to its mission of bringing trust to email.

    Our focus is on getting every domain locked down and every phish eliminated with a deterministic sender identity approach. Every team within the company is focused on making a better product or a happier customer. This drives each one of us to work better as a team and it is what makes it fun to come to work everyday! We all feel like we are making a huge difference.

    Cons

    Growing pains.
    Loads to do.
    Unlimited PTO policy means not remembering to take time off.
    When work is fun it is hard to turn off and staying always on takes a toll on other aspects of life.

    Advice to Management

    We will all need to streamline processes to sustain our growth.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Valimail (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Started with an email introduction from a mutual connection. I was then scheduled with the two founders for a web meeting. We connected right on time & I enjoyed getting to speak with both of them. They provided great insight to what they needed, and I had the opportunity to ask plenty of questions to really understand the assignment. From there, we scheduled an onsite meeting. I had a chance to go see their office and culture, meet other team members and have another meeting with the founder.

    I was excited to see an early stage company focus on talent and even as a contractor they wanted to ensure I was a fit for the company. They were generous with their time, were ON TIME (this was much appreciated) and had really great follow through for next steps. As busy as they are building ValiMail, they were invested in getting to know me.
