    I have been working at Spin full-time

    Pros

    Founders are smart, easy going people

    Cons

    We are spending more and more time in large meetings debating abstract theories, and following mindless procedures. At the same time, we have less time to discuss and solve the critical issues that are obvious to the business.

    Advice to Management

    Ask middle managers whether they understand the business, rather than ask them to create more processes and the appearance of work.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spin in June 2020.

    Interview

    Pretty standard process recruiter phone screen, 1st round technical phone screen, virtual "onsite."

    Unfortunate the engineering team does not have a well thought out interview process. Interviewers asked whatever questions that came to mind and most were just repeated tell me about yourself questions and not well prepared or thoughtfull. None of the interview questions were about how I would solve problems relevant to the job, which is unfortunate.
