    I have been working at Mojio full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free lunches Commute is good if you are in South Bay Some talented people in engineering team

    Cons

    Mojio is a sweatshop for T-Mobile. If you enjoy working long hours and weekends for iterative projects, by all means, go for it. The product has not changed in years and the management does not seem like what they are doing. They claim to have new customers, but at best it is another iterative version of the same product. Employees are not treated with respect. The CEO keeps cursing in meetings, bullies everyone in sight. You need to be a yes man to keep your position. Career advancement opportunities are minimal. It has been a small startup for 7 years with very little growth. All of engineering reports into one person. I will leave to your imagination how she finds the time to work with everyone, provide guidance and be on top of the projects. All in all, it will be an acceptable place if you are starting up in your career and need to add some experience to your resume. If you are an experienced engineer and want challenging projects, look elsewhere as they won't be able to give you one.

    Mojio Response

    CEO

    Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. While I can understand the urge to vent if you are feeling overworked and frustrated, doing so anonymously on a public forum does not give me the impression that you have Mojio's best interests at heart. After all, each and every Mojian is granted stock options and will share in the company's long-term success. Given that you are likely ~75% vested, I am surprised to see such a short-sighted review. Instead, I strongly encourage you to talk directly with myself or our Head of Human Resources. Mojio has always (and always will) welcome open and honest feedback from every member of the team. As the CEO of Mojio, I take direct issue with some of the claims you've made and it is my duty to address them openly and with authenticity. #1 - We are not a sweatshop for T-Mobile. As our largest customer and a strategic investor, we obviously put a significant amount of emphasis here. After all, our first guiding principle is "Customers come first, always." How many startups out there would kill for a chance to have America's fastest growing wireless company as a customer? #2 - Regarding our growth, Deloitte Canada ranked us as the 2nd fastest growing technology company in 2018 and we've managed to beat out all of our venture backed competitors in this space. What we do is very hard and the customers we work with are very demanding, as they should be. The fact that we just raised a $40M Series B from investors like Amazon, Bosch, Deutsche Telekom and T-Mobile speaks for itself. #3 - All of Engineering does not report into one person. In fact, our VP of Engineering has six direct reports, each of whom are responsible for teams within the greater engineering organization. And as you know, we are actively working with a new set of engineering leaders to unlock new efficiencies. #4 - Mojio has been a career accelerator for many folks and we aim to promote from within whenever we can! Just last week, we promoted several engineers into elevated roles. #5 - Regarding the cursing, I will not apologize for being passionate during some of our all-hands meetings. As for bullying, that is an extreme claim and something I take offense to. I may be direct, but I am not a bully. As the leader of Mojio, I bring an intense level of drive to our company, and that's exactly what's needed in a highly-competitive, global business environment. Even so, everyone at Mojio has the right to challenge my assumptions and raise their hand to object or share a reason why something should (or shouldn't) be done. I have always been open to feedback and will continue to operate this way. In closing, I want to reiterate that the door is open to speak with myself and/or our Head of Human Resources and we would appreciate you sharing your grievances with us directly so that we can work towards a win-win solution, as opposed to an attempt to publicly damage our brand and reputation
