I have been working at Poq full-time (More than a year)
The biggest pro for me is the culture and people. I am a huge advocate of what we do as a business, but for me it's the people that make it a pleasure to come into the office every day. No two days are the same, it has a vibrant atmosphere and a collaborative, open culture, which I love. It is also very flat in structure, the Founders are all accessible and very much part of the team. There is no obvious heirarchy here.
We have grown very rapidly over the past 12 months and with that comes certain struggles and adjustments in terms of catching up with yourself and learning to function as a bigger business, very quickly. We don't always get it right, but we learn from our mistakes. That kind of ever-changing environment can be unsettling for some people, but for others it's what drives them.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Poq (London, England) in October 2017.
1) First part was a phone interview talking about my experience on previous jobs and standard questions like why would you like to work with us, what aspects do you think are important when working on a team, etc.
2) After followed an online test on codility based on 3 exercises in Swift. Nothing too complicated with 1.5 hours to finish it once started.
3) Last part was an in-office interview with developers from the team. Questions ranged from theoretical: architecture and communication patters, SOLID principles, memory, etc; to some others more practical.
The interview wasn't complicated. I know I could have done much better but I usually don't perform very good at interviews. But in the last round I found out the position was more about maintaining a big common platform than developing individual polished apps.
