Terminus is hands down the best place I have worked! I've worked in corporate environments, mid-sized companies, and another startup and none of these other companies can compare to the experience I have had at Terminus. We have a great group of hard-working, dedicated, passionate, and fun people who are completely invested in the success of the company. The leadership team invests so much in the employees and wants every individual to be successful. The leaders also trust their employees and give them the autonomy to do their job. The perks/benefits are great, too. You can create your own schedule and telecommute as needed pretty much from day 1. We have a weekly catered lunch, team events/outings, unlimited snacks/drinks. The leaders truly want Terminus to be the best place to work and they invest a lot to make sure that happens. There is also a monthly stipend to go towards medical/dental/vision benefits so your individual premium is covered depending on the plan you choose. There are a ton of career and growth opportunities - within the first 2 months I was here, I saw about 5 promotions happen. We're truly the best team in Atlanta and have a product that can solve real problems our customers are facing - and it's only the beginning!
There can be growing pains and things can change day to day but that's the nature of being part of a growing startup and keeps it exciting!
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Terminus (Atlanta, GA (US)) in September-2016.
I had a 30-minute phone interview with the recruiter, followed by a 30-minute phone interview with the CTO, and later came in for a lunch interview and technical screen with the tech team (8-10 people) lasting about 2 hours.
During the in person interview, the interviewers were mostly concerned with my prior experience and how on top of new technologies I was. The technical screen questions were broad in scope and straight forward to answer based off your skill set. Questions were back-end geared, and the interviewers were looking for very specific answers. I was asked to white board some simple algorithms. They provided a laptop if I needed to google anything, but there really was no need to use it, as they basically told you an answer if I didn't mention it right off the bat after being asked.
Despite not getting an offer, it was overall a good experience with a solid team of knowledgable developers. I had the feeling they were hiring mostly on experience, rather than intelligence or culture fit.
