    Company making the transition from small start up to bigger operation so plenty of scope to get involved and help set up processes.
    Great opportunity to learn a lot and take responsibility.
    Less formal structure means there's scope to have your voice heard and good ideas get an airing.
    With offices in the UK, US and Europe, it feels more international in outlook than you might expect in a company this size.
    A lot of people have a real vision of how they want to improve the company and their enthusiasm shows.
    Excellent opportunities to train internally and externally.
    General lack of bitchiness, open communication. friendly people.


    Company making the transition from small start up to bigger operation ;) The downside is that if you're used to process and clear hierarchy it can be a bit of a culture shock.
    Less formal structure means it takes a lot longer to get all the necessary people on board to take a final decision.
    Holiday allowance is legal minimum - which is strange because the benefits package overall is very good.

    Advice to Management

    Do something about holiday allowance, improve processes and infrastructure for decision making and internal comms, make decision-making responsibilities clearer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at ID Business Solutions (London, England).


    I had a phone interview, followed by an on-site interview. It was a nice and friendly interview of about an hour with Line Manager, Lead Developer and a Senior Developer from his team. They briefly highlighted role responsibilities and what part of the product I would be working on, then they cracked on with the technical part of the interview.
