I worked at Featurespace full-time (More than a year)
Really enjoyed my time at Featurespace: the Data Science team is a lovely bunch of smart, passionate and hardworking people. I appreciate that I was given a lot of flexibility and choice in what I worked on and deciding how to best apply my skills for the benefit of the team / company. I felt that my feedback was taken on-board and my contributions were valued.
Otherwise, people are noticeably more friendly and approachable compared to other companies, compensation is great and there's always something to eat in the fridge :)
It can get busy at times, which I personally enjoy, but if you're coming from a big process-driven corporate behemoth, it can take some time to adapt to a more dynamic environment.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Featurespace (Cambridge, East of England, England) in August 2018.
The interview process comprised of 4 individual stages. The whole process was enjoyable (or as enjoyable as interviews can be) and all the staff I spoke to were very friendly.
1) Phone interview with member of the implementation team.
2) Face to face meeting with two members of the implementation team to go over a coding exercise completed before hand, a live Linux CLI test and a white-board code test.
3) Phone interview with the COO
4) Phone interview with the internal recruiter
