Culture
People are friendly and open to hear different opinions. Grads often have some interesting activities after hours and Friday afternoon is a good time to have a rest and chat with others. The structure in the company has recently changed and each team has one technical team lead and delivery lead. The new structure address more collaboration among teams and encourage employees to have multi-skills.

Recruitment
There was a two-day assessment centre. The first day was group work and an interview with HR; The second day was technical interview, and two technical leads learned more about my professional background. When meet with HR, questions are mainly about my soft skills. e.g. Describe the most impressive project you have in the university and why? For technical questions, I was asked about data structure, algorithm, database and multi thread etc. Tips: Be confident and relax during the interview. Have a review about all interesting projects and activities you have and match them with both soft skills and technical skills.

Free beers on Friday nights are absolutely amazing. Organized and curated by beer enthusiast workers, it stocks the good stuff.

Training
Formal training is probably not the greatest, we didn't really have any when I was starting. The latest grads have formal training but from what I've seen it can be a little irrelevant (i.e C++ lessons for testing engineers who are realistically not going to be using them) Informal training is excellent due to the company culture. People are always willing to explain new things or assist you in developing a greater understanding of the product and the technical areas.

I can work from home, and there is no fix time like when do I need to be at work. Some developers are night owl and they can come to office late and stay up late.
