    Consider coming back. We are hiring in Palo Alto, Prague and Vancouver and we have plenty of space, desks and great team members to collaborate with!

    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...

    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 ...

    Pros

    I have been with Mojio for about a year now, and am very grateful to work here. You are empowered and expected to do your job to the fullest and further. If you're not, they will make sure that you have the tools to do so. Fantastic people to work with. Great leadership, collaborative, smart individuals and open environment to express opinions and an active work environment. Innovation is always at the forefront....

    I have been working at Mojio full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can do the research on our unprecedented growth with T-Mobile and several other carriers in Canada and Eastern Europe, how well funded we are and our top notch exec team! Below is what I have to say: Reason I am staying at Mojio: 1) Mojio is generous with their stock options 2) 4 weeks vacation where a portion of unused vacation is paid out at end of year 3) 10% bonus (you gotta earn it, but it is there for...

    Cons

    Of course there is no perfect place but there are no major Cons. One item of concern is that the VP's have a lot of direct reports. Ultimately, there needs to be a little more middle management HOWEVER, middle management heavy organizations are not as productive and profitable and Mojio is more focussed on hiring engineers to support our rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Within reason, promote a few people to positions to take some of the burden off the VPs per above comments in Cons section.

    I have been working at Mojio full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Amazing growth opportunities - Product development and outlook is pretty good - Monetary compensation, workspace and benefits are good - Fun outings with the team. We also get VIP tickets to events in Vancouver and Palo Alto

    Cons

    - Not losing the weak links quick enough. Makes it tough for the others who are in it to win - Uncontrolled growth - Need to have planned for it to be incident-free

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what's going on but plan for the growth. Keep staying transparent as always. Thank you!

    I have been working at Mojio full-time

    Pros

    - Strong growth - Exit looking good for investors at least - Free lunch now in both offices - Very flexible hours

    Cons

    - Very long hours, expect to work every weekend - Totally unrealistic expectations, sales guy CEO thinks everything should be faster - Empty promises from management to keep you working - No organization or processes - Everybody has to be in every meeting - Execs make all decisions

    Advice to Management

    - Look at long term - Listen to engineers - Slow down before downtime and outages kill the company - Do not punish engineers who want quality - Only ask for feedback if you want it, no fake open door where you punish people who tell truth

    This review does not match what our anonymous internal team survey shows nor our actual performance. 14 of our last 21 hires have come from team referrals. We are so focused on quality and uptime that we have quadrupled our Q/A and devops team over the past quarter. My commitment ...

    Pros

    Good Android Engineers Good ability to get products to market

    Cons

    This company has an unclear product vision with a more clear motive to sell the company than actively grow the company to a number one competitor. They have overpaid and hired members in the senior management team to appear like they have a credible team on paper so that they can assure VC firms and investors that they are capable of building a decent product. Trying out the product and speaking to customers of the...

    Pros

    Mojio has a great team of people and it has a really bright outlook in the near future with plans to expand with many more customers in multiple countries. I like that the management is very transparent and will give you a direct answer when you ask them sensitive questions about the company (No BS nor dancing around). This is still a small team of people so a lot of trust is placed in your decisions and capabilities....

    Cons

    Work can be hectic and requirements are all over the place. Deadlines can be unrealistic with limited to zero input from engineering. However, I guess in the startup world this is rather normal as you look for the breakthroughs.

    Advice to Management

    Need to ramp up the headcount to keep up with the sales opportunities!

    Pros

    - Love the place and the people. Feels good coming in to work everyday - Great company culture. Everyone seems to be really smart, kind and helpful - Very strong leadership team striking new partnerships every other day - In a hot space (Connected car / IoT) with lots of players involved. Opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    Not really an issue for me, but there are some growing pains (which is good) and the management team has a plan to deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your hustle on - we got this!
