What Employees Say
I worked at Duedil full-time for more than 5 years
A lovely company with great office atmosphere and team spirit. Working at DueDil feels like being part of a family. Diverse and likeable staff. Nice offices in a great location. Some meaty... engineering challenges to get stuck in to, particularly if you like data. After a few years of searching, DueDil finally understands its value proposition and ideal customers, as evidenced by recent success in the British Banking Awards.
As mentioned above, it took DueDil a few years to fully understand its value proposition and target markets. Some of the early investors were disappointed and fund raising was an ever-present... concern, leading to high staff turnover at times. Management has since done a great job in right-sizing the ambition and building a more sustainable story. At the time I left, there wasn't a lot of career development runway ahead of me.
Advice to Management
I've been away from DueDil for a year now but still consider it my spiritual "start-up" home and miss working with you. Keep up the positive momentum and keep the family vibe. P.S. - I told you... the API would be a big hit ;-)
I have been working at GoCardless full-time for more than a year
GoCardless is a company which is considered by many to have long been a leading player in the London fintech scene. You might then expect the working environment to be one of steady development and... well-practiced routine. From the inside however, there's a semi-mad scramble to outperform even the largest and best competitors and pioneer a new global payments platform. There are high expectations but teams have responsibility for devising strategy. The autonomy and collaboration this brings keeps the business feeling nimble even as it scales into the hundreds of employees.
Internationalisation and scaling teams naturally brings growing pains. It's not the sort of place to find rigid guidelines and you need to be able to adapt to changing organisational aims. To do well... you need to be able to thrive in uncertainty and creatively marshal resources.
Advice to Management
Disseminating information quickly, maintaining the accessibility of management and engagement with employees. Anticipating and eliminating organisational roadblocks so teams can get on with executing... strategies.
