I worked at Vidigami full-time
Incredible work atmosphere and work/life balance. The team dynamic at this company is the best I have ever experienced. You get the feeling that everyone is working together to solve whatever problem the team is faced with. The core dev team of front end, back end, and QA are in constant communication, giving a real feeling that you're involved in every part of what is going in.
The mentorship on the dev team is also amazing. The senior engineers on the team are highly competent and always willing to explain how elements of the system work (though sometimes in too much detail). The team here is constantly improving and investing in professional development.
Sometimes the dev team has difficulty distributing the work between engineers. I think this is a growing pain that comes with being a startup. If something is high enough priority, there can sometimes be members of the team who are extremely busy, while others do very little.
Meetings tend to last longer than they should.
Advice to Management
Try to distribute the knowledge of the core systems among more team members so that work can be distributed easier.
Limit meeting times.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vidigami (Vancouver, BC) in April-2015.
I was first interviewed by the QA Manager, who was very polite and professional. I came into the interview feeling nervous but I was soon made to feel comfortable, which lead to me being the best I could be. After a few technical and fun questions which took roughly 1 hour, I was introduced to the CEO who then showed me around the office and introduced me to the team. I liked how friendly and welcoming everyone was when they saw me.
After that, they asked me for my reference. I was offered the job a couple of days later.
One of the best interviews I have ever experienced!
