What insiders say about…
Being a semi-large software development house, sometimes it is difficult to see actual fruits of labour - something you can point to and say "I did that". However, there is enough so that you feel like you are contributing.
Colleagues are extremely friendly and helpful. The company is reasonably flat in structure.
The interview process involved completing a programming assignment. This is followed up by a phone interview where I was asked several technical questions and about the assignment. Finally an onsite interview occurs that takes half the day. The onsite interview involved playing a board game, followed by a lunch provided for free by the company, a technical interview and a debriefing as well as having a quick tour of the development floor.
In the onsite interview, I was asked to write on the whiteboard in pseudo-code an implementation of Conway's game of life. In the phone interview, I was asked technical questions such as what is polymorphism, inheritance, what is a deadlock, as well as the difference between class and object.
Practice programming and ensure that you explain yourself clearly. Don't be afraid to take up the whole whiteboard and write down all the conditions/requirements needed by the question. Draw up a simple class diagram before diving into the pseudo code.
Fairly flexible. I can leave work very early and complete my hours through VPN.
Pay is average or slightly below average as compared with similar software companies. Bonus is based on how the company is performing as well as R&D KPI.
Monthly company lunch and drinks. Free fruit (daily).
There are performance reviews conducted on a periodic basis, There are bi-weekly meetings with team leads to discuss how each team member is going.
Training is mostly done informally. This is currently being re-vamped, but during my time it was mostly skills and familiarity with coding and process
Upward mobility towards management is difficult as there are few openings. One may still specialize and excel as a software developer specialist however.
Ethnically and gender-wise quite diverse. No bias is given during recruitment. Unsure about maternity leave as haven't had to exercise it yet.
Nothing that I'm aware of. We look at qualifications and skills, not backgrounds
We have company policies set in place, we hold certain events such as harmony day to acknowledge our multicultural diversity.
Conveniently located in North Sydney, close to the train station and day to day facilities are easy to reach. Office is comfortable. Dress code is smart casual.
Not familiar with company having plans in place to reduce carbon emissions.Join us to bookmark!
