The company gives every employee the opportunity to experience an ambitious start-up. You can see what others in other departments and teams do and work on and always bring in your own ideas. There are barely any boundaries and everyone is willing to share knowledge and open to input from outside.
Regular company-wide events and meet-ups are very common and always fun. They even throw parties every once in a while and are generous regarding additional benefits such as free fruit, coffee and a bi-weekly breakfast. The large open kitchen in the social area gives the opportunity to meet up to cook and have lunch together, not only with your team colleagues but also with those who work in a totally different department. The interaction between all employees is highly encouraged and supported via lunch lotteries or cross-functional workshops.
At eGym you can learn a lot in a very short time - a great experience.
The growth of the company comes with more anonymity, meaning that not everyone knows one another anymore since there are too many people working at eGym already.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at eGym (New York, NY) in July 2016.
I had three interviews with approximatively one week between each one. The first was with HR asking about my experience, why I'm applying to egym and some questions about java. It was very cool. The second was a coding test exercice to do offline dealing with Rest web service and unit testing. The last one was with the backend team where they presented themselves and gave me two live coding tests. I liked the company so much and that was approved more when I received the feedback about my application with advices on how to improve.
