I have been working at Zignal Labs full-time
Hands down the best thing about working at Zignal is the people. I've had the opportunity to work with some incredibly smart and talented people while at Zignal. Just important though, is that it is a group of people that is generally a pleasure to work with. If you're going to spend most of your waking hours in a full-time job, it helps to work alongside people who you actually want to spend time with. There are definitely other perks too, but the team itself is my favorite.
As a growing company, there are definitely growing pains along the way. Communication across departments and leadership can be a challenge at times, but there has been some improvement and hopefully more to come in the future.
Advice to Management
Focus on unifying the team and communications, and invest more and more into your greatest resource (the people).
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zignal Labs (San Francisco, CA (US)).
Phone screen and then an in-house interview. Through the phone screen, I got the sense that the company is very disorganized, but I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt and show up for the interview. Unfortunately, my hunch was confirmed when I showed up for the interview ON TIME (this is according to the time sent to me from the recruiting coordinator) and no one was ready to interview me. Seems the team was still at lunch at the time that I was told to show up and I was "early." They asked me to go get lunch on my own and kill about a half hour's time...
Also, I was supposed to interview with 4 people (5 if you include the recruiter) and instead I only met 3 people, the recruiter and 2 of the engineers that this person was going to work with. The first person didn't seem to know what question the person was trying to ask. I don't think this person really thought out the question she was going to ask the candidate, frankly. The second person was okay... he gave me the coding quiz and I aced it no problem, but he looked very stressed coming into the interview. I then was waiting for the 3rd and 4th person and instead the recruiter came in and said that the hiring manager is sick and the VP was busy fighting fires and wanted to postpone my interview to a later date. I know the kiss of death when I see it... Wasn't surprised to get the "Not Selected" on the Jobvite.
I should have listened to my gut and decline the invite to come in for the in-house. Would have saved me a lots of stress and grief...
