    I worked at Kantox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many key people in the company is very talented and this translates into continuous learning opportunities. You're enabled to create things from scratch and everyone is invited to speak up.
    The company is developing quite big projects that might turn it into a top actor in the FX market.
    Facilities are great and benefits offered are quite good.

    Cons

    The transition from startup to consolidated company is generating some cultural challenges. Some key stakeholders are really tough to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Professionalism and accountability need to improve to retain experienced talent.

    Senior QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Barcelona (Spain)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kantox (Barcelona (Spain)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    1) Relaxed technical interview with QA Manager
    2) Take home coding test (REST API test)
    3) Chat with HR
    4) Chat with the team (technical interview)
    5) I got the offer but I got advised me that employees could work from 7 am to past 7pm and if I'm not a top performer then I could get quickly weeded out and also that this not a relaxed job.

    I think it was the worst advice ever.
    Nobody will join a company with that culture. I believe people should stay away from this type of companies as it's not healthy. Lack of work balance and basic benefits you could find everywhere. Don't recommend.
