    I have been working at Hubba full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    What an amazing place. The teams are built on some of the smartest people I have had a chance to interact with and everyone is so focused on mentoring and growth. On the developer side they are so cautious to only bring on juniors when there is capacity to properly mentor and guide them. Once they feel they are up and running the seniors are so excited to bring on a new junior. What a way to build out an amazingly strong team and build peoples confidence.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything

    Advice to Management

    Keep on being transparent. It's so refreshing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hubba.

    Interview

    Comprehensive but that's expected in a small shop. This is how it went:

    1. Application - I applied to their job posting online

    2. HR feedback - HR emailed me re my interest and whether I wanted to proceed. I found that odd, but confirmed my interest anyway. She then scheduled a chat for the next day.

    3. Phone interview # 1: With the friendly HR lady inquiring about my background and typical pre-screen questions. 20-30 minutes.

    **She emailed me a couple days later to tell me that I was shortlisted for another phone interview with (one of many) hiring managers

    4. Phone interview #2: Pleasant interview with more detailed job related questions. 20 minutes. Probably the most interesting interview in this saga.

    **HR lady emailed me a couple days later to tell me that I was shortlisted for an in-person interview. I confirmed a time and went into their office

    5. In-person interview # 1: With another hiring manager + an associate. Interview was an hour long, and while they asked some typical interview questions, most of the time they were picking my brain (and I, theirs)

    **HR lady emailed me a couple days later to tell me that I was shortlisted for a second in-person interview, only this time with 3 people. Essentially two interviews, one after another. I confirmed a time and went into their office

    6. In-person interview #2: First hour was spent with two additional hiring managers/team members. 20% was interview-esque and 80% was chatting about the overall context of the role. Final 45 minutes spent being grilled by a senior member, who pretty much asked me everything the previous 6 interviewers did

    And then.... nothing! I get if the role wasn't a fit, but decency would've been to send a polite thank-you-for-your-time-but-we're-moving-ahead-with-someone-else email.

    Dear Hubba - you do great stuff and take care of your people. But us mortals have lives too, and our time matters. Treat us with a little more respect.
