Persistence Technology

Persistence technology from Absolute provides you with visibility and control over all of your devices, regardless of user or location. If an Absolute client is removed from an endpoint, it will automatically reinstall, so you can secure each device and the sensitive data it contains. No other technology can do this.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Absolute (Vancouver, BC) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I came through employee referral program. So my process was meeting with VP first. He sent me to talk to a Sr Director from the team to get to know each other first. Then HR recruiter called to schedule an official interview with the internal CTO. We had a pleasant phone conversation and the last step was to finalize the details with the VP over video conference.
