Advice to Management
Keep the culture as agile and nimble as it used to be now it's part of a bigger org.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at JustGiving (London, England) in September 2015.
Sent in my CV and the day after I got a call to setup an interview. A week or so later I went in to do the interview.
Normally the interview process consists of different stages, but I went through all the stages in one go in a 3 hour interview session which suited me just fine. At least it's all over and done with in that one session.
First had a general chat about my experience and motivation whilst going through my CV.
Second part was the tech bit where I did the standard code exercise, they were mostly interested in seeing how I tackled the problem. I was free to ask them questions about the test and they would ask some questions about why I went in a certain direction. At the end we just had a chat about tech stuff, nothing all too difficult.
Last part was the people/culture part, just them explaining the culture and making sure you fit in.
Same day late in the afternoon I got a call where they made me an offer which I accepted.
Even though an interview is always a bit stressy they did their best to put me at ease.
