I started a new job a few weeks ago! I am now a Senior Developer at a prominent advertising agency.
The whole process was the fastest hiring process of my career. A team lead at the company saw my résumé on Triangle Devs chat and reached out (on Wednesday). We had a phone call later that day. The next day I visited the office and got a take-home coding challenge. Friday morning I submitted my solution, and by early afternoon I had an a very generous offer.
The company is small enough for everyone to know each other on a first name basis. My boss is very pleasant and has no problem investing in her employees. Nearly everyone at the company stays focused on work through the day, with very little interpersonal banter.
A co-worker once told me "We aren't friends; we just work together". I was taken aback initially, but what he said was true. I've become friends with co-workers, and I always try to be friendly. When I was introduced on my first day by the owner, half of the development team hardly glanced at me, even though our boss called to them several times! I hadn't expected to be welcomed with warm hugs, but it still felt pretty cold.
