I have been working at DigitalOcean full-time (Less than a year)
amazingly smart people that are driven, passionate and just generally good people who care about making products and experiences that are elegant yet simple
the company is maturing and undergoing a lot of change with a new CEO at the helm, so the path isn't always 100% clear yet, but if you thrive in a place where you can create a bit of your own destiny and don't stress about change, then no problem!
Advice to Management
mark, you already are having a tremendously positive impact on helping this organization "grow up" so keep it coming! and please help champion diversity at the leadership level as it is lacking yet is so important.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DigitalOcean.
This is the longest process to date, with a lot of time and energy being invested from the interviewee's stand point(especially if you don't get the job). This is a huge problem especially if the interviewee has other offers on the table, but really wants to see the outcome of this particular job.
Applied through the website, got a call from recruiter, then had a homework assignment, then video interview if I passed, and then meeting with 5 people on site with 45 minute interviews each. A lot of redundancy in the questions, but it's good to meet the whole team you'd be a part of and working with. The recruiter stayed in touch throughout the process which was great, and very helpful.
The reason for not hiring didn't make sense, because it seemed like they didn't even want to hire for this position and I felt like I wasted my time in the end. A proper reason would be beneficial especially if the interviewee has made a greater effort and put in so much time.
We are excited and proud to announce our new CEO, Mark Templeton. Read more about the next wave at DigitalOcean from Ben Uretsky:
