Mission: Our mission is to make Salesforce release management ingeniously simple.
I have been working at Gearset full-time (More than 3 years)
Everyone is an absolute pleasure to work with - I look forward to coming to work every day to see everyone. It's the smartest bunch of people I've worked with and there's a great culture of team responsibility and collaboration.
People are trusted to manage the way they want to work on things - what counts is that you're making a positive impact on the team, the company and the product. Process is kept to an absolute minimum where not necessary - you're much more likely to just grab a cup of tea with someone to talk something over than to book a meeting into their calendar.
The engineering team has a strong focus on technical quality and I'm constantly learning new things, but we also have a really strong connection to the users of our product. Everyone gets involved with talking to users, helping with their issues and making sure they have a great experience. Not only does it keep us focused on the right things, it lets us see directly the impact of the work we do.
Very few. There's less structure than some might be used to - I see this as a lack of bureaucracy and process for process's sake, but it does mean you have to own your own time and work a little more perhaps.
Occasionally support requests need to be answered outside normal working hours (on an "if you're free and you see it come up" basis).
Advice to Management
Make sure the best things about working here don't get diluted as the company grows. I have no concerns so far but it's always a challenge to preserve as many things as possible that made the small company great.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gearset (Cambridge, East of England, England) in December 2018.
I came across Gearset through a recruiter who I had an initial interview with over Skype to assess my suitability. I was then put forward for a first stage interview at Gearsets' Cambridge office.
I was asked to prepare a 5 minute presentation on what Gearset do in advance, focusing on the comparison of Salesforce orgs using Gearset. I was also asked to do several tasks such as writing a sales email, critiquing a sales email, responding to a live chat and making a mock sales call. They focused on the technical side of my experience and went into detail about my current role in software sales.
I was subsequently invited to attend a second interview in Cambridge. This was a less technical more competency based interview. They were looking to assess whether I would fit into the company culture and they gave me the chance to ask my questions about Gearset.
Whilst challenging as expected, my overall interview experience was extremely positive and I was made to feel very welcome by the team at Gearset.
