    I have been working at Uberflip full-time

    Pros

    - The team. Seriously, this team is outstanding at every level.
    - The Giveback program <3. A part of our revenue is always dedicated to social programs, global initiatives (ie. Australian wildfire fund, NAACP, SickKids, etc)
    - The fun stuff. Covid-19 and a million zoom calls a week have made it harder, but we're still so excited to make the time to connect with each other (bake-offs, step challenges, meditations, hidden-talent spotlights, etc)
    - The work itself. Regardless of what role you're in, it's not an easy one. There are challenges, and quite often, new challenges every day. That said, its work that stretches you personally and professionally, and I'm up with that type of work any day of the week.

    Cons

    - There's a lot of unknowns that come with start ups, even in the best of times, and Uberflip isn't immune to them.
    - There's some hard work to be done to take the product and the company to the next level, but that work is in the works.

    Advice to Management

    Keep LUVing the Customer, keep LUVing your teams.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Uberflip (Toronto, ON) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I generally do not review interviews on Glassdoor, however, I had a bad experience here - so posting it

    I have given more than 15 interviews in the last 1 month and the experience here was the weirdest and the only one for which is worthy of a negative review.

    Applied online: I had a good chat with the hiring manager wherein the person went in-depth with what i had worked on
    I had clarified upfront I am primarily a backend developer and I just know the basics about web dev.

    The next day I reach the office. Which is pretty good but not so well connected to the subway.
    My interviewing panel consisted of a product person who has no tech experience for years and a front end developer who has absolutely no idea about backend technologies.

    Both the assigned interviewers were off to what I did and what I was interviewing for.
    The frontend developer seemed to want to ask me a few frontend-only tech questions which I couldn't

    And the product person was asking me business-related questions from my company which were way off my domain of knowledge.
    Within 20 minutes of the interview, they asked the customary question of whether I had any further questions - which shook me off. They hardly went in-depth with regards to what work I had done, nor into DS/algo or system designs. In fact, when I tried to go in-depth with my experience they snapped at me asking to answer in a boolean way

    It seemed the company is quite employee-focused but personally I had a very bad experience. I don't know who is at fault here; whether there was lot of mismanagement internally, or if I did something wrong or if it just wasn't my day - I personally believe there was a lot of mismanagement involved

    One should try and understand that a candidate probably spends more than 2 hours to come/leave to the office and you just give 20 mins of half hearted time for the interview. At least give a chance what a person has to express for the allocated time. If not that then do what most companies do: have a screening online round in advance so that you don't waste the candidates time and see if there is any match with the candidate

    Interview Questions

    • About my last project - quite superficially, they were not interested in going in-depth. And after one point the questions were too be answered in binary - Yes or No.   Answer Question
    • How do you think your previous company (which was a sports media company) - will complete against its rival company (who's name I had never heard of - which is not even remotely related to Software)   Answer Question
