Pretty good place to work
Software Engineer in Test (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – August 21, 2018
When it comes to jobs in this area Commercehub is probably the best employer. I think that Commercehub used to be pretty great, especially when I started here, but over time it's become more and more corporate. My experience is that some teams / products are really fun and exciting and you are constantly improving, but on some of the older products the teams are much slower moving. There is a lot less time to improve the product or refactor / improve the code to make our lives easier.
I certainly learned a lot here, but the way that the company is heading is not what I'm looking for in my job. For example I think we now have 4 x as many C level executives than we did 2 years ago.
The other developers her are almost all great, but the management team is hit or miss. Some of them are great, some aren't so much.
The hardest part of my day is getting constantly told that we don't have the time to actually fix things the right way, we always have to do "good enough". The best part of my day is when I get to actually put my head down and solve a problem. There are quite a few really good devs and architects here, and quite a bit of opportunity to solve really complex and difficult challenges.
If I had written this a year ago, it would be a 4.5 / 5, now though I would only give it 3 / 5.
occasional free food, sometimes interesting challenges to solve
Some teams are better than others
