    I have been working at DigitalOcean full-time (Less than a year)


    There are quiet a few, the three most important to me are trust, transparency, and love. People here love what they do, and are always jumping in to do their best everyday and be a part of strong teams. Transparency with employees and customers is always considered, and I'm trusted to come in and do my job every day without micromanagement.

    Other pros: great team members across all shifts, company culture and inclusion is a priority, the freedom of working remotely to travel and/or move, and work-life balance is respected and if you forget to take time off you will be reminded!


    Some people may consider working remotely a con, I personally enjoy it quite a bit however I can imagine for some that like an office environment it might get lonely. There are daily video huddles to get some face time in though.

    Another possible con is the company is relatively young, changes are constant. I have not seen any unnecessary changes or any that didn't seen well planned out, however for change averse people that could be a con.

    It's difficult for me to come up with cons because I'm very happy and treated very well. And pros and cons are all quite subjective, things that I enjoy could make someone else unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees and doing what you're doing, it's been wonderful!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DigitalOcean.


    This is the longest process to date, with a lot of time and energy being invested from the interviewee's stand point(especially if you don't get the job). This is a huge problem especially if the interviewee has other offers on the table, but really wants to see the outcome of this particular job.

    Applied through the website, got a call from recruiter, then had a homework assignment, then video interview if I passed, and then meeting with 5 people on site with 45 minute interviews each. A lot of redundancy in the questions, but it's good to meet the whole team you'd be a part of and working with. The recruiter stayed in touch throughout the process which was great, and very helpful.

    The reason for not hiring didn't make sense, because it seemed like they didn't even want to hire for this position and I felt like I wasted my time in the end. A proper reason would be beneficial especially if the interviewee has made a greater effort and put in so much time.
