I have been working at TOPdesk full-time (Less than a year)
Amazing people and culture. CEO is very down to earth.
Salary is way too low compared to market standard
Advice to Management
If you want to recruit more senior people to work on growth stage, increase their salary level to fit the market standard.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TOPdesk (Delft (Netherlands)) in April 2017.
The interview consisted of two phases, both had soft skills assessment and a tech task. After the first phase HR called me and informed that I have passed through for the next phase.
She also shared her feedback about what went not well during the first step. Sometimes I didn't listen the end of the question and just started answering. One more feedback was that I talked a bit too much and a bit too cheerfully :-) This is my reaction to the situations when I am nervous, in normal life I am a quiet person. So I am grateful for that feedback because during the second phase I payed more attention to these issues and tried to be more myself.
What was a bit surprising is that they very carefully read my motivation letter and had a lot of questions about it. In our industry it is quite uncommon, in my experience it is sufficient if a developer just has a relevant tech stack and pass technical task. I wrote my letter by myself and invested some time to make it a bit more prominent.
So my advise to the applicants: please, write your motivation letter thoroughly, don't copy-paste a generic template from internet. The technical tasks are not too difficult and the interviewers also take into account nervous factor. The attitude was quite friendly. Good luck!
