Mission: We give companies who rely on their data,
the confidence to grow their business
and the information to make better decisions
I have been working at Coeo part-time (More than 5 years)
At Coeo you get back what you give (and more), so unlike many companies. If you need something you just have to ask; there is plenty of learning opportunities and managers and colleagues are always willing to help both professionally and personally.
Sometimes it can be a little too busy and you can get stretched beyond what you though you could achieve technically. I kind of like that though!
Advice to Management
Keep bringing the team together and communication open and honest, the rest will follow
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Coeo (Reading, England) in August 2016.
First interview was a one and half hour phone interview with HR where we discussed the position, the company history, it's values and ethos, and the personal and technical qualities that would allow someone to succeed in the role. Honesty and openness was encouraged at all times. I was informed shortly afterwards that I had been put forward for a face-to-face interview.
The second interview was onsite at the Coeo office in Winnersh, with the head of Professional Development and Operations, and a Senior Architect. This consisted of approx. one hour of operational discussions and technical questions, followed by the delivery of a 15 minute presentation on a subject of my choice (I was advised that this would be the format well in advance so had time to prepare). Again, it was a frank and open discussion and the expectations of the role were clearly set. I received feedback on the same day as the second interview.
Everyone I spoke to throughout the whole process was super-friendly, courteous, and professional and I never felt disconnected from proceedings or under undue pressure at any point. All in all, the best interview experience I have had. I remember thinking that even if had I not been offered the positon, I would still have enjoyed the process.
