Mission: JustGiving is the world’s fastest growing social platform for giving. Our mission is to connect all of the world’s causes with people who care, from hyper-local community projects to major international charities.
I worked at JustGiving full-time (More than 3 years)
Relaxed environment, interesting stuff happening on the tech side and collaborative team working. Ability to work from home is good. The culture is good... seems to be improving gradually and think that is down to a change in a few senior hires across the business and a new wave of energy emerging
Communication is bad and you don't really hear from the management team. A few aggressive personalities in the office and there is always a shift on projects. New Wave in HR really seem like they want to address that and other culturally impactful things which is hopeful but this will take time.
Advice to Management
More feedback needed. Your staff want to hear more from you. Appraisals and a more structured system around that could go a long way in retaining people. Create more development opportunities for teams.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at JustGiving (London, England) in February 2017.
Submitted my cv, was then sent a technical test which I really enjoyed doing. A few days later I got a call saying they would like to interview me. I went in for a 1 stage F2F. I thought every one was really nice, made me feel really welcome. They were more than happy to answer any questions I had. The whole process was very relaxed, even although I was nervous. I did some paired programming, then a chat about processes including Agile. And then I had a coffee with their internal recruiter. I found the entire process professional but everyone was really nice. One of the nicest interview experiences I've had.
