Applying to Keen IO (after seeing them on HN) was hands down the worst application process I've experienced in my 10 year career. Despite being personally introduced to the hiring manager at the beginning of the process I was give an unbelievable 'run-around' over the course of many months (I would have an interview, then wait weeks for a response, then have a second interview, got invited for onsite, they didn't follow-up to schedule and ignored my requests to do so). Something is incredibly broken here. Very unresponsive and unprofessional.

Job post is a marketing gig for them. I don't think they go through the resume or hire anyone, just keep posting the same jobs over several months.


This was posted over a year ago. I wonder how many they hired.
