    I have been working at Defaqto full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A fast moving company which is becoming more and more well known.
    Training about financial products and investments from internal experts.
    Working with quite a modern development stack including AngularJS, WebAPI and EntityFramework with an openness to adopting new technologies.
    Everyone in the development team is highly skilled so there is always something you can learn from your peers.
    Great team and company wide culture.

    Cons

    As it is a small development team and everyone is very skilled there isn't an opportunity to be promoted. That said if you show enough enthusiasm you will be given leadership roles for individual projects or the freedom to try out your ideas.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Defaqto.

    Interview

    A full half day interview, with an hour interview and then an hour and a half technical test to produce a simple website and then talk through the development with 2 other developers. Then a written test for basic knowledge of asp.net.

    The most important thing about interviewing is to be honest, most of the time Defaqto is looking for a good fit into the team and may not necessarily be looking for the top skills, as these can all be taught.
