I worked at Zend Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)
I loved working with the people at Zend Technologies -- they are smart, caring and helpful! For every situation you will get at least three solutions, all of them well thought of and articulate. The company culture is international - you get to work with people from all over globe: US, Italy, France, Germany, Israel, Ireland and more. Meeting everyone at the annual conference is a real pleasure! Weekly beer bash where we all gathered with the CEO for a quick update on the week's events in the company were a great opportunity to feel part of the company and socialize with your co-workers.
the workload can sometimes be too much -- like in any startup, it is up to you to work with your manager on prioritization!
Advice to Management
Help your employees with prioritizing the right tasks so they won't feel overwhelmed, and will have the best chances to succeed.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zend Technologies (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in April 2013.
Interview with French VP in charge of Southern operations, this is a start up type company, it was quite disapointing with a lake of dynamism and positivity, all the time asking about knowledges of solutions without to pay attention about sales abilities, it was for a sales role.
In despite telling him that these 'complexes' solutions needed to be a matter a learning and training like in each company he wanted to talk about his 'science'.
Overall behavior a bit inquisitor, like French people do usually, the climate was quite heavy and didn't give me wishes to go further.
