Mission: To provide technology and services that contribute significantly to the success of our customers and to provide Daxko team members with rewarding careers.
I have been working at Daxko full-time (Less than a year)
How much time do you have? I would highly suggest looking at the company careers page.
Benefits: I've worked for several different employers and these are by far the best benefits I've had. For medical, I pay less for far more coverage, the time off earnings are extremely competitive and then there are things like Professional Development allowance, the time off associated with conducting professional development, and Sabbatical. Free Friday Lunch is amazing. There are also lots of hidden perks that come with the territory. It took a few weeks before I even discovered all the benefits.
Work Space: Standing desks, coffee machines, stocked cooler, open and creative work environments, themed demo rooms. I often have to keep myself reminded of how unique our office is so I don't simply get used to it.
Culture & People: Transparency here is no joke. You will get direct insight into how the company runs, how the financials are looking, and what you can do to make a direct impact. The sense of ownership is strong and people know what they need to do to make a difference. We don't have departments at Daxko, we have Teams. In my short time so far at Daxko, I have built great relationships and know I have someone to count on at work. In my experience, that is rare.
The opportunities for growth are here, the recognition and rewards are for the taking. The environment is fast pasted, imposes new challenges each day, and always keeps me on my toes. I wouldn't have it any other way.
The learning curve can be steep. At times you might feel overwhelmed or at a loss as to how to move forward in your role. If you're intimidated by change or not ready to get out of your comfort zone, this is probably not "it" for you.
Advice to Management
Keep it up.
I applied online. I interviewed at Daxko (Birmingham, AL (US)) in May-2017.
I started off with a Video Interview as well as a personality and cognitive aptitude test. These were great because they could be completed on my own time. I felt like I could show more of my personality through this format than the traditional first round phone interview.
I was then brought in for a one on one interview with a Team Lead, which lasted about an hour and a half. The interview was very relaxed, but also gave me great insight into the position and allowed me to give much further detail regarding my experience.
Next, I was brought in for a peer interview. Essentially, I was given a scenario with some basic background information and instructions letting me know that I would be presenting on how I would approach the situation. I was given plenty of time to prepare for this beforehand and really enjoyed the process. I presented to 6 different team leads and transitioned to the peer interview portion immediately after. This process lasted about an hour and a half. It was awesome to hear different perspectives on the company and have the opportunity to answer questions from different teams within the company.
Lastly, I had a follow up phone call with a Team Lead which was primarily focused on giving me an opportunity to address concerns that they had with my experience and qualifications. How cool is this?! I was given the chance to give further insight into my experience and directly address concerns. This was a first for me. I feel like 9 times out of 10 companies don’t take the time to give you an opportunity to address their concerns.
All in all, the interview process lasted about 2 months.

At Daxko, we work hard AND play hard. After a long work week, some team members like to play kickball, and another group plays card games like Avalon and Coup. Check out this post by one of the gaming group members!
