    I have been working at Hothead Games full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, too many benefits to list, willing to go the extra mile to get the best talent from around the world, aggressively persuing excellence across the board.

    Creative freedom, everyone has a voice, lots of upward mobility.

    Cons

    Milestones are short resulting in bugs and less development time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, it’s refreshing

    Backend Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hothead Games.

    Interview

    Asked for a prescreening call almost 2 and half months after an online application. The queue of skilled Python backend programmers before the company in Halifax, Nova Scotia is probably too long... And what to say more to fulfill a 50 word minimum? Please contact potential candidates a little bit faster.
