    Pros

    Lyst vision is bold and ambitious, is easy to identify people that are driven and working hard every day to fulfil that. Loads of people with 3+ years working share the same vision and grit to make it work. You are independent and have full support to work your own hypothesis and tests. We are also responsible for your working hours, it's more important to deliver the projects and results than spend long hours at your desk.
    The freedom is not suitable for everyone since is easy to slack and lose focus on your OKRs and squad objectives.
    Brillant people around all senior positions and all of them are willing to listen to you and help with anything necessary to ensure you have all structure and support around you to deliver the best you can, this also provides clear guidance and inspiration to become better at your job every day.
    Amazing office, food available all day, good benefits package.

    Cons

    The nation, tribe, squads organization can be confusing. Loads of legacy issues that demand hours of rework and sometimes are deprioritised due to the company ambition of constant growth.

    A brief chat with their recruiter, then they sent a task to write a spider for a particular website. After that had an interview with a team lead and project manager.
