Does Checkout.com offer housing assistance?

Pros

The engineering leadership is open to using the latest technologies, latest versions of tools, etc. Teams are given good amounts of freedom to experiment, do R&D, write pocs etc. We've had a bunch of training sessions with Amazon AWS people on recent AWS tech and services. Management seem to actually be good people, friendly, approachable, not micro-managers and so on. Teams are trusted to do the right thing. People team (HR) really try to put on good events and to their credit they are actually quite good. Often good food is provided, drinks, etc. Recently more push towards physical and mental health initiatives (which I think is amazing). Very sociable company in general.

Cons

The office is getting packed with all the new hiring (basically impossible to book meeting rooms), although we are moving to a new (and much bigger) office soon so that should be way better. Some growing pains in terms of hiring so fast and trying to expand in every way which makes coordinating on cross team products hard. Communication needs to be better on cross team initiatives. Working with the Mauritius office can be difficult. Communication-wise.

Advice to Management

Add further project management/delivery management process when it comes to cross-team projects/initiatives. This definitely could work better than it does right now.

Advice to Management

Re-evaluate the product/engineering split - as an engineer I would like people with a software engineering background in product roles so that it is easier to work with them.
