  • Search our Open Jobs
  • Register and create a profile in our database. This will allow you to apply for multiple jobs and will make your resume searchable by our recruiters.
  • Fill out and submit the job application; you will receive an automated email to confirm that we have received the application.
  • Our recruiters will review your profile and share it with our hiring team.
  • If your background and experience matches one of our open positions, a recruiter will reach out to you directly. Due to the high volume of applications received, not all candidates will be contacted for interviews.


Our interview process will vary depending on the group and location of the interview. Generally, you can expect:

  • One telephone interview with an Aerohive recruiter
  • 1 - 2 telephone interviews with a hiring manager or member of the hiring team. If interviewing for a technical position, this step may include coding questions using a sharable document such as a Google Document.
  • 2 or more in-person interviews with the hiring team. In-person interviews may include one-on-one or panel interviews and can take between 1 -5 hours depending on the position.

An Aerohive recruiter will be available throughout the process to answer your questions and keep you informed of the expected timeline. The time it takes to make a hiring decision will differ for every position, however, we will make every effort to provide you with prompt feedback after your interview. You should feel fully empowered to contact your recruiter to check on timeline and next steps.


We understand that deciding to accept a new job can be an equally exciting and stressful life-changing decision. There is much to consider when making your decision:

  • The Company's Story and Values
  • Financial Compensation for the position. In addition to our Benefits and Perks, our compensation package offers a competitive combination of base salary, equity, and variable performance-based pay.
  • The health and reputation of the company

We encourage you to ask questions throughout the interview and offer process to learn more about Aerohive and make sure we are the right fit!


Our hiring team will expect you to have done some research before your interview. You should have a general understanding of our products and services and how we differentiate ourselves from our competitors. Click on the following links for more information:


If you are interviewing for one of our engineering positions, chances are the majority of your time interviewing will involve technical assessment and coding questions. Above all else, we want to see if you can write good code with sound design. We will be looking at your analytical skills and your ability to course correct throughout the coding exercise. Recommendations for success:

  • Study up on basic algorithms and data structures (especially if you are rusty)
  • Practice writing code on a whiteboard or on a shareable document such as a Google Document. We might use one or both of these mediums through the interview process and you will be able to write code faster if you have practiced.
  • Explain your work as you code. Your answer may not be perfect right away, but this way the interviewer can follow along with you and see that you understand the problem.


Preparation is key for a great interview. One way to prepare for an interview (and shake the nerves) is to practice with a friend or in front of a mirror. Half of the battle is being able to communicate strong examples of your previous work into STAR responses. STAR is a method of answering interview questions using examples of your past behavior. Our hiring teams are trained to look for these types of responses from candidates.

  • Situation: What was the specific event or situation?
  • Task/Obstacle: What were you responsible to accomplish?
  • Action: What actions did you take? Be specific.
  • Result: What was the outcome? Whenever possible add a specific metric of success (revenue added, cost saved, etc.).
