If you like to work with all kinds of technologies, this is the place for you. There is tons of opportunities to learn and help improve the environment. The people here is what makes the job fun. Great people who works hard and plays hard. The work/life balance is great and I never felt like I didn't have time to spend with my family.
The infrastructure is a mess and there is no time to address it. Projects are constantly coming in on the fly and you are expected to deliver on the spot. Unfortunately, this means sometimes taking shortcuts.
Advice to Management
Take a step back and think about how to implement change to effectively scale as the company grows. Taking too many shortcuts will become a management nightmare.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at mBlox in August 2013.
I was contacted through e-mail by the Office Manager two weeks after I applied online to set-up a phone interview with the VP of Marketing. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes, and I was asked to submit two writing samples. A few days later I heard back from the Office Manager to set-up an on-site interview to meet with three contacts (the VP of Marketing, Product Manager, and consultant). The interview took place about a week later. I met with each for 30 minutes. I was asked questions pertaining to my professional background and scenario questions for this position. During the last interview I was told that I would hear back regarding the decision. A week passed and I e-mailed an HR contact (whom I was told was my point of contact) to follow-up on the status of the position. A week passed...two weeks passed, and I heard nothing back. I double-checked my e-mail, and it was the correct e-mail address indeed. I obviously interpreted the non-response as a lack of interest. I was disappointed with the lack of follow-through in keeping a candidate informed on the decision made, whether favorable or not. After all, I had invested time and I was clearly left in limbo on the status of the decision made.
