I have been working at VoiceBase full-time
Really smart people, relaxed culture, strong team cohesion
Wearing a lot of hats is common, but that's normal in startup life and I actually enjoy it.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing, as growth continues consider adding a culture/people/office leader role.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at VoiceBase (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.
I really enjoyed my interview with the VoiceBase software engineering team. My interview panel was a mix of experienced engineers and seasoned product managers. We talked about architecture/design patterns, 'gotchas' of using several specific software frameworks, practical challenges scaling and evolving distributed data processing systems, RESTful API design and implementation etc. All of the interviewers showed a genuine interest in my past experience. One of the 1-hr sessions was dedicated to solving an interesting distributed computing problem, starting from a simple local-memory version and adding more and more depth to it incrementally, touching most of the fundamentals of modern distributed computing. Finally, I got a chance to talk to the VP of Engineering - and I was impressed by his technical vision for the emerging 'Big Voice' industry and the VoiceBase strategy.
