    Pros

As a growing CDN company, we have enormous opportunity to scale our platform to massive volume of data. Great opportunity to work and contribute towards some of the cool technologies in big data space. People around you are very smart and friendly. Management has good focus.

    Cons

    None as such. If you love your work on great technology and enjoy what you do, other things does not matter much.

    Pros

    Want to work on latest tech and fast paced environment this is the place you want to be. Free food, work from home, flexible working hours, Friday beer bash.

    Cons

    Not that I know of.
