Software Engineer Interview

The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Grasshopper (Ang Mo Kio, North-East).

Interviewers were late. They wanted a more experienced developer but yet somehow my resume was short listed. Not very professional and pretty amateurish. They were more interested in getting to know how/what other companies are doing from the candidates then to actually interview them.

Intern Interview

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grasshopper (Singapore) in December 2016.

The company is relatively new so they are experimenting with methods to come up with their interview processes for their interns. There were 3 rounds
1. Math test of 50 questions
2. Solve rubrics cube, crossword puzzle and a jig saw puzzle to give you clue to a number pattern puzzle
3. A group discussion which will be observed
The company was very young, it felt vibrant and a great place to be part of.

Intern Interview

I applied online. I interviewed at Grasshopper (Singapore) in February 2017.

It was a group interview, few interviewers and few candidates. Just a few games and simple math questions (addition, subtraction, just to see how fast you can calculate). But the interviewers were rude and the HR wasn’t very friendly. One of the interviewers was wearing flip-flops and used the F word quite a few time during an INTERVIEW. I thought traders or analysts were supposed to have some manners and well educated.

Quant Interview

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grasshopper (Singapore) in November 2015.

Attended the company presentation at school and sent across my resume. Got a call for an interview within a week. I interviewed at the Singapore office. The interview was with the CEO. We walked through my resume and he asked me about my interests, etc. It was a very friendly interview with nothing technical. They look to see what kind of person you are since it is a small company and everyone ends up communicating with everyone else.

Supported third-party Grasshopper plugins

The growing list of Grasshopper plugins you can use with ShapeDiver. Check this page out regularly!

While we definitely want to support lots of great plugins in the near future, for now ShapeDiver can only handle built-in Grasshopper components and selected plugins. Some plugins of the list are only partially supported, when they contain components we can’t allow yet. Find under each plugin a Grasshopper definition that contains all its components that aren’t allowed on our platform.

Plugin versions

We try to stay up to date with most plugins, when it is possible. Nevertheless, the current version of a plugin supported by our servers is not always the latest one, make sure you check if it matches before downloading.

Plugin Package for ShapeDiver
For convenience, we have built an archive containing all the third-party plugins that are supported on ShapeDiver’s servers. The archive contains version compatible with both Rhino 5 and Rhino 6. Uncompress the files, make sure they are unblocked in the Properties (Right-click – > Properties – > Unblock) and copy them to the Libraries folder of Grasshopper. You’ll be set with a full set of ShapeDiver-compatible tools. Download it here.

Some plugins like Peacock and Lunchbox consist of a set of clusters. In that case, all versions of the plugin are supported, but each cluster that our system doesn’t know yet will need to be validated, in the same way that script components are handled. Find more information about model checking here.

Python scripting

Rhino 6 supports Python scripting natively, and so does ShapeDiver. Users of Rhino 5 can use the official interpreter plugin developed by Giulio Piacentino.

List of supported plugins

All components allowed (there is only one).

Exoskeleton is a free plug-in for creating meshes. It is currently comprised of two components: Exo Wireframe and Cytoskeleton. Exo Wireframe thickens line/node into watertight meshes. Cytoskeleton thickens the edge network of any existing mesh into a thickened mesh.

All components allowed.

Daniel Piker and David Stasiuk 1.0.0.0

Plankton is a flexible and efficient library for handling n-gonal meshes. Plankton is written in C# and implements the halfedge data structure. The structure of the library is loosely based on Rhinocommon’s mesh classes and was originally created for use within C#/VB scripting components in Grasshopper.

Library for use within scripting components.

Plugin name Author Version
Daniel Piker and Will Pearson 0.4.2

Read and Write components should only be used locally. All other components allowed.

Weaverbird is a topological modeler that contains many of the known subdivision and transformation operators, readily usable by designers. Instead of doing the work repeatedly, or sometimes using complicated scripts, this plug-in reconstructs the shape, subdivides any mesh, even made by polylines, and helps preparing for fabrication.

Grasshopper Reviews

“Management”

Excellent team, family feel. Allowed to explore opportunities and make key decisions. Given the latitude to manage ones self. Management is extremely accessible and willing to hear opinions and ideas.

The low latency trading industry is an intense, difficult business and the challenge of success is an ongoing battle. If you are not a determined person this company will not be the place for you.

Grasshopper

  • Pros

Extremely fast and easy setup. Competitive cost. Covers the basics of a business phone system, including basic call routing/IVR, voicemail, and faxing.

Cons

Requires existing landlines or mobile phones. Limited features beyond the basics.

Bottom Line

Grasshopper is aimed at small to midsize businesses (SMB). In that space, it’s a solid contender with a good feature set, solid mobility support, and a decent price point, too.

LogMeIn acquired Grasshopper in 2018 to flesh out its business communications suite. Grasshopper provides a business phone service that LogMeIn can add to its remote access and conferencing platforms, including GoToMeeting and Jive. With the addition of Grasshopper, LogMeIn now has a credible unified communications (UC) platform, albeit one focused on small to midsize businesses (SMBs) looking to leverage some of the capabilities of “big office” systems but without the price or legacy requirements other than cell phones or normal landlines. Grasshopper begins at $26 per month (billed annually) for its Solo tier, which has options for toll-free and local numbers along with unlimited calling. While this makes for an attractive small business option, if you’re a larger organization or one looking for more depth in your VoIP capabilities, then you’ll need to look elsewhere, like at our Editors’ Choice winners AT&T Collaborate or RingCentral Office.

Most hosted PBX solutions rely on at least some hardware onsite with the customer. This might be an older traditional PBX or Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) phones that link to the hosted service, or some combination of the two. Grasshopper doesn’t bother with any of thatβ€”they simply create a PBX software instance on their servers that links extensions to existing phone numbers. There’s no provisioning for SIP phones, existing PBXes or any local hardware other than a functional phone number as well as existing phones including cell phones, as well as a good internet connection. This means that Grasshopper is inexpensive when compared to other SMB PBX services, but also limited once you need to grow beyond basic PBX functions.

If that level of service is all you need, however, then the price is nice. Aside from the $26-per-month Solo tier mentioned earlier, which includes support for one number and three extentions, there are two other tiers. The Partner tier jumps to $44 per month (billed annually) and handles up to three numbers and six extensions; and, finally, the Small Business tier provides up to five numbers and supports an unlimited number of extension for $80 per month (again, billed annually). It’s important to note that, unlike much of the competition, these aren’t per-user-per-month prices, but simply all-up monthly pricing for the whole service.

Easy Setup

Setting up Grasshopper is easy. You select your desired service level, choose up to five local or toll-free numbers or port an existing number, and you’re ready to set up your extensions and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system. Choosing numbers only requires you to either choose from a list of toll-free numbers, or to specify where you want your local number to be, and then choose from a drop-down list. You can also search for a vanity toll-free number.

Extensions are simply links to other phone numbers, such as a cellphone or landline. There are options per extension allowing for the incoming calls to be announced as a call through the Grasshopper system. The system then prompts the caller for a name and then replays that name to you before connecting the call, or simply connects the call immediately upon answer. You get to choose how that works on a per-extension basis. Extensions can also have call time restrictions, such as active 24/7, only active between 9am-5pm Monday through Friday, or a custom schedule. Also, extensions can be defined with multiple forwarding numbers, and then instructed to either ring all numbers until answered, or ring each number for a set period of time in order.

Extensions can be defined this way for individual people, for instance to route to an employee first on their desk phone, then on their cellphone, or the extension can be set up as a department extension and linked in the IVR system (such as “Press 1 for Sales”) where extension 1 is a department extension that rings multiple forwarding numbers in order when a call comes in. For example you can choose Call Blasting that will perform that function. You can also enable voicemail transcription via email. Each extension can have its own custom voicemail greeting, and if a caller leaves a voicemail, it is emailed to a list of recipients.

Grasshopper offers a dial-by-name directory that requires configuration of every user’s first and last name linked to their extension. Electronic fax services are included in the package price. If an incoming fax is detected, it will be converted to a PDF and emailed to one or more configurable email addresses.

Useful Web Interface and Mobile Clients

Grasshopper has a Web interface, that while not quite as feature-rich what’s available from larger players, like RingCentral Office still provides easy access to their voicemails, faxes, and call logs, and includes options to configure the main greeting. This interface serves as the only IVR option . You won’t find complicated phone trees available here. Instead, it’ll be “Dial 1 for Sales, dial 2 for Support, or dial 8 for the Dial-by-Name Directory.” There is an option to replay the message, transfer the call to an extension, or disconnect if there is no caller input.

With Grasshopper’s reliance on other phone lines for actual communication, outbound dialing from a landline can be complex. However you can place a call via Grasshopper’s Apple iOS or Google Android app, or you can use the softphone on your PC. There’s a dialer that is used to directly place the call, access voicemail messages for playback, check a contacts list that can be populated from your phone’s contact list or a separate list of extensions, and a smattering of settings such as a default outbound number to be used for billing and caller ID purposes. It’s even got support for digital signatures, as the Grasshopper fax client allows you to sign faxes and PDFs using your finger. Grasshopper supports Wi-Fi calling, and is able to seamlessly switch between your cell network and Wi-Fi.

The Grasshopper mobile apps are fairly full-featured softphones for mobile devices. You can make and receive calls just as you would on your mobile phone, but your Caller ID and your calling features will make it look like you’re working from an office with a full PBX behind it. You can forward or transfer calls, dial extensions and you can have access to most of the administrative settings for the extension you’re using. The app works well although the bilious green color scheme might be a bit much for some.

Grasshopper is competitive in price with other VoIP services, even other systems aimed at small companies, like 8×8. However while all the basics are there, advanced features necessary to support a call center or support VoIP desktop phones aren’t included. You won’t find most advanced features you might be used to seeing from other hosted PBX providers, especially those focused on midsize or large companies, such as RingCentral or Vonage Business Cloud . What Grasshopper does offer is exactly what their tagline claims: a phone system for entrepreneurs. It sets up very quickly, easily, and appears to a caller like an enterprise-grade PBX system with a greeting, call routing, voicemail, and fax, and does not require much of any configuration of hardware or software other than perhaps the installation of the smartphone app. Do your research, make sure Grasshopper can meet your short- and interim needs, and this solution could do very well for many companies.
