I worked at kikin full-time (More than a year)
Great coworkers, really great browser and mobile product.
Tight deadlines around deliverables, unclear product trajectory.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at kikin (New York, NY).
kikin has a very warm and friendly startuppy atmosphere. The interview process was starightforward -- there was one technical interview, performed on a whiteboard, not more than 30 minutes. The questions are starightfoward, kind-of like just out of an algorithms textbook. They're fairly easy, I'd expect a sophomore in CS to be able to answer them well.
