    Je travaille chez Synthace en tant qu'intérimaire (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    - Best culture in any company I've worked at; team members are trusted to make decisions and "get s**t done". Leadership are there for you when you need them, but there's no micromanagement. Socially, team members are diverse (could do better but we're only small and there is an active, specific effort from our recruitment team to source diverse team members, not just a superficial nod to "diversity training"). I'm LGBTQIA+ and do not feel that impacts my career prospects in any way here.

    - We're contributing to changing the bloody world. If you don't come from a biology background, Synthace offers a pretty unique opportunity to work with and learn from scientists who are literally doing all the stuff that people might compromise in other areas (salary, location, working flexibility etc.) to be able to contribute towards; I tell my family I'm curing cancer, I'm solving world hunger... It's a pretty awesome feeling.

    - The product is strong, and our market want it. Although we are still a start-up, I feel more secure than at other start-ups I've worked at before; it really feels like we are at the edge of something incredible, and can be a genuine leader. Backing this up we have some fantastic investors who've just funded our B-Round at the end of 2018.

    Inconvénients

    - Whatever function you're in, what we're doing is *hard*, - we're creating and testing groundbreaking software, doing things that we don't have a template to follow. We're running biological experiments at breakneck speed, we're communicating to the world about something that sounds like science fiction. If you're not comfortable with failing fast and getting on to the next thing, you won't be comfortable here.

    - The usual challenges with being a start-up - we're forming process, we are building structure into teams, our benefits etc. are still being fully defined. Nothing unusual here, but something to be aware of if you're used to a more structured environment.

    - Whilst the office is stunning, and (we've only been in there two months at time of writing) only getting more impressive, the actual location is a bit eh. Is Shepherd's Bush even London amirite? (I kid White City, I love you). BUT it's the right place to be for what we do, and the development itself is pretty awesome - lots of varied places to go for lunch and after work drinks, Westfield is close enough to visit comfortably on your lunchbreak. (team dependant) there's also a lot of options for flexible working hours, working from home etc. when needed so don't let it be too big a turn off, give it a go :)

    Conseils à la direction

    You got this. Let's keep getting s**t done.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Synthace.

    Entretien

    45 minute interview / screening call identifying fit for role with a mixture of technical and soft skill questions. Great impression of the company and highly focused on collaborative working. They also say they are flexible with the scope of roles.

    3 hour test using the codility platform if also being considered for software engineer.

    1 hour interview with one member of the software team who asks technical questions followed by a live coding exercise to canonicalize an IPv6 address.

    While the first stage interviewer was friendly and open to discussion the second stage interviewer came across incredibly dismissive projecting the complete opposite of the culture mentioned in the screening call. They seem to forget that an interview works both ways i.e. candidates are also interviewing their future colleagues. The second stage interviewer seemed to have a list of tools they wanted to hear mentioned when it came to the question of debugging a network error but did not give any specific problem.

    Overall the second stage interview is more a test of memory rather than of how you approach solving problems. In contrast to what was mentioned in the initial call, the company demonstrated zero flexibility as was told my skills are between an SRE and a software engineer and they wanted to recruit for the specific roles.
