Pros

Customers love the product. Product Design and Engineering are open to customer feedback, and release major improvements / updates frequently. The commercial side of the business does well to focus on Ideal Customer Profiles. The leadership team is mature for such a small / early-stage business - things are scrappy but not chaotic. Communication is open and honest. Remote work was an easy transition for the company, as everyone is driven and takes responsibility for their own deliverables. People team put effort into building culture and social activities. Kudos and progression are based on merit and achievement, not seniority or politics. An excellent place to grow your career.

Cons

Product is not perfect yet. A lot of processes are scrappy and not yet tied down. London and Riga offices feel fragmented. Dedication is needed, but this is NOT a culture of long hours for the sake of it.

Pros

I have been at Juro for 2.5 years now and have loved it! If you put the work in, the professional development opportunities are limitless and we have a fantastic leadership team who will support you! We have also been very well supported throughout Covid-19, with a working from home budget and quarterly socials, the team has really tried their best in a difficult situation. If you want to avoid bureaucracy and the process-driven mindset of some larger companies, then Juro is definitely the place for you.

Cons

No cons as such, however, working at a fast-growing startup is no mean feat and you have to be prepared to put the work in. You must also be resilient and be able to bounce back if things don't go as planned.

Pros

- Great company culture & values - A group of very talented people who work hard and support each other across functions - Opportunity for everyone to add real value to the growing business - Really supportive senior management

Cons

No cons as such. Working for an early stage start-up will be a very different experience than working for larger businesses so that depends on the individual. If you want to be a part of adding real value at a crucial time for the business, then it's an exciting time to join Juro and I would definitely recommend!

Pros

Product is shaping up to be like something that has never existed before and is more ambitious in scope than its competitors, whilst maintaining a design first approach. High-performance, friendly team and strong working culture. Open, process-driven & fair leadership, who take the time to explain and consult on the decisions and direction of the company. Very strong learning and development experience, and expect to make an impact! As the company's typical customer profile is other tech start-up/scale-ups, you get to work with some super interesting and innovative businesses.

Cons

As an early stage company, some working processes not yet build so not for those who would prefer a more structured environment. London and Riga teams can feel fragmented.

Pros

Leadership: Until Juro I've never seen a Series A startup that, at just 24 people across two offices, is already so well-organized and mature. Of course lots of existing processes are scrappy and can be improved upon but the foundations of an established business are all in place, which puts the company in a solid position to grow. The fact that the last round was led by a US investor underscores the trust the entire team has in Richard and Pavel. I'd come in expecting much more chaos, but what I've seen so far is a company that is run better at under-30 people than most any other startup (or more established) is run at 200+. Autonomy & ownership: Vice versa, the trust that the founders place in the team to experiment, fail fast, iterate and improve allows for a lot of freedom to get things done. That's not to say that I'm not challenged on the 'why' behind ideas, which makes for in-depth, mission- and value-based discussions and gives me more certainty that whatever I'm doing is uniquely 'us'. Richard and Pavel have recognized the strategic importance of the People & Talent function form the get-go, and in 3 months I've been enabled to do more than I would have in any other business in perhaps a year. Onboarding: Being hired and onboarded during Covid-19, I was apprehensive about how it would go never having met the team and doing everything via Zoom. What I encountered was a flow that made me feel welcome and supported to succeed from the second I signed the offer (via Juro, of course) — getting my onboarding plan and laptop early so I could do the setup before my first day, meeting the team informally for virtual drinks, light reading to hit the ground running, working with Richard to establish my 90-day plan, regular check-ins etc. Values: 'Good' culture is important to most candidates, and most companies say that it's crucial to them, too. I find that most companies miss the mark when it comes to turning values from a corporate exercise into something that is lived in everyday behaviour. Juro does this by dedicating space during onboarding to showcase the values and what they mean in your role, giving shoutouts to people who are living the values on Slack and in allhands, checking in with how you align with the values concretely in your role every quarter, training everyone at Juro to be comofortable interviewing for value-add in dedicated sessions and more. As a result, not only are our values notably different from what you usually encounter (e.g. being open and transparent, being gritty vs Keep It Simple, Be More Human) but everyone at Juro knows what our values mean as a whole and for each Juror personally, and how to conduct yourself in your work, with your team and with our customers accordingly. Cross-functional collaboration: Bridging the gap between Sales and CS, or CS and Engineering, or Engineering and Product is tough in fast-growth SaaS startups. The processes, checks and balances we have in place to unite everyone around the same objectives, share knowledge and work together to find the best course of action is really well-done.

Cons

Benefits: As an early-stage startup, the benefits offered are growing but obviously don't compare to a Monzo or later-stage business. That said, benefits are typically not what keeps people in (or drives them from) a company. Wearing multiple hats: This being a startup, you get ownership, responsibility and trust and are expected to deliver on that. If you're not comfortable going out of your comfort zone and expect to do the same thing nine-to-five Monday to Friday, Juro (or any startup for that matter) is probably not for you.
