    I worked at iRobot full-time

    Pros

    Great team. Direct managers really care about employee well-being. Opportunity for growth and flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    It's sometimes difficult to break down the barrier between different organizations (eg. engineering, operations, business dev).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at iRobot.

    Interview

    Very long pretty much almost a day. Went extremely well. Never ever heard back, had to ping them about 3 times to be told the job was filled. Seemed like they would not have emailed or called to let me know the job was filled. I had to be bold and continue to follow up. If a job is filled, it is common courtesy to let the other candidates know.

    While the Internet of Things has taken off in the commercial and business space, the opportunities in the consumer area have still not been realized, according to iRobot co-founder and CEO Colin Angle. "At this moment in time, the consumer Internet of Things - which is very different from the commercial Internet of Things - is somewhat of a failed promise," Angle said.
