I have been working at Reaktor full-time (Less than a year)
Working in self-organized teams means you're tasked with plenty of flexibility and responsibility. Reaktor is a fertile environment for professional growth, and its empowering to be part of a culture that celebrates you for taking initiative, not punishes you. You're encouraged to make mistakes, learn from them, and iterate fast. Being surrounded by very talented people is a huge bonus, as you have unfettered access to their expertise. Regular trips to beautiful Helsinki, gorgeous office in central Amsterdam, use of top tech, access to top-notch training courses, free meals twice weekly, and subsidized health insurance are also big bonuses. Not to mention excellent work-life balance!
Developing self efficacy in a flat hierarchy is an adjustment if you're used to traditional hierarchical working structures. Likewise, it's not often easy to find information you need in this working structure. Making decisions through group consensus can mean a slower process of working.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Reaktor (Amsterdam (Netherlands)).
Very well organized and quite informal.
First interview was with the recruiter and then after a couple of days with developers.
The recruiting process is quite fast compared to other companies in Amsterdam.
