We know that everybody has different needs, so we give our employees choices. We offer various Blue Shield PPO medical plans or if an employee wants to go the HMO route, they have options do so with Blue Shield or Kaiser. We pay 100% of employee premiums and 75% for dependents. We also have full vision and dental plans available as well. In addition, employees immediately start accruing 3 weeks of paid time off and may take advantage of our unlimited sick policy. We also understand that commuting costs costs add up too. We help with this by offering the purchase of transportation passes pre-tax. Additional benefits include, life insurance, long- and short-term disability coverage, a 401(k) plan, and flexible spending accounts. We want employees to be well taken care of at Clustrix!
We review tons of resumes! Okay, maybe not tons, but thousands!! We value your time for checking us out and submitting your resume, so don't think it did not go unnoticed.
Here's the simple process we have that helps us getting through them all:
- We review all incoming resumes and pick the ones that best fit our open positions.
- Next, we schedule a brief phone screen with folks we think would be a good match.
- After the phone screen, we invite candidates for an on-site interview.
- We make a decision within 48 hours, and often sooner.
During the phone screen for engineering positions, we like to ask a simple coding question. We use a collaborative document sharing tool to make the task easier (e.g. Type With Me). The solution is typically a few lines of code and takes no more than 5 minutes.
The on-site interview is approximately a 3-4 hour process. We usually have 3 engineers interview candidates. Each engineer has his own interview style, but we generally give each candidate an opportunity to interview us about Clustrix, discuss the candidate's past experience, and ask a 15-20 minute whiteboard coding question. Your answer doesn't have to be perfect; we're mostly looking for proficiency in C, an understanding of data structures, and a structured approach to problem solving.
Our interview process is tough, but that also means that you will get to work with bright and skilled people, solving difficult problems.
