    Advice to Management

    The core smartsheet architecture i.e sheet load and saves etc are really hard areas to work on. The code itself is 15 years old and trying to change it is going to be a slow and painstaking process. Every company has a code base like this.

    It appears product doesn't seem to acknowledge it. The product is making promises to customers without consulting the team. Why? Trying to expedite change is going to make things worse. Listen to the principal and & distinguished engineers. They have those titles for a reason.

    An engage deadline is no reason to burn the team out.

    Engineering org is trying to do too many things at once. Move to AWS, Continuous deployments, Dev Ops, moving from manual to automated testing, Re-write areas of the code, Getting rid of QA/SRE roles. Slow down, you can't do everything at once, focus on 1 or 2 things and execute

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smartsheet (Bellevue, WA (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I did two phone screens, first with a recruiter and then with the hiring manager. It was followed with an all day interview loop where I had to do a presentation to about 8 people and then one-on-one interviews with various employees. Questions were typical ones that are asked to designers. What impressed me the most was how organized the whole hiring process was. The recruiter was prompt to respond and very helpful. I was given very thorough information on how my interview loop was going to unfold and given linkedin profiles for each person I was going to meet.
