    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Native Instruments part-time (More than 3 years)


    - community space
    - location
    - free software for employees
    - reduced hardware prices
    - used to have great staff, but many of them left or been fires, people who stayed are very competitive and career oriented


    There was never a space for personal growth, once u get a position you stay in it for years. After many promises about transparency - there is still none - you never know when the strategy is gonna change again (which is every year) or some of your colleagues will get fired. No support or communication with HR, lots of talking behind the back. Lower than average salaries with very little benefits.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Berlin (Germany)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Native Instruments (Berlin (Germany)) in August 2018.


    I live in London but was applying for a job in Berlin. I applied online.

    I first had to complete a code challenge. The code challenge difficulty was very well pitched, I had to think about it a lot but it was perfectly achievable with some application.

    After the challenge, I had to wait a while for feedback. I think that this is mostly down to the fact that it was August and a lot of people were on vacation.

    I had a Google Hangouts interview. with the engineering manager and tech lead, which lasted an hour. Very quickly after this interview they asked me for a second interview with the wider team.

    Thankfully I was in Berlin shortly after this, so my second interview was in person. It was with three developers in the Native Instruments offices. We had a very interesting conversation about my technical ability and my ideal way of working, as well as challenges I had faced in previous companies. I also had a tour of the offices and a quick chat with a hiring manager about start date etc.

    After this interview, I was offered a job.
