    I worked at Onfido full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined Onfido pre-series A with less than 20 of us on the floor, and left with the company hosting more than 300 employees in several parts of the world - seeing all of that and the opportunities that came with it along the way was nothing short of amazing. I was given a runway to build a team, the opportunity to take on challenging projects and several opportunities to help shape my career - I owe a great deal to Onfido!

    For me, the pros are that Onfido has a very exciting product solving a big problem, a network of amazing clients, a super inspiring workforce to learn from and grow with, and a huge number of great benefits that I was certainly able to enjoy - especially flexible working allowing for a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    As with any start-up, you don't always have all the resources you require so you need to be creative and versatile - this makes Onfido a place to get your hands dirty and build!

    As the company has grown and the different organisations in the business take shape, sometimes procedures and the need for sign-off come at the expense of efficiency - a difficult balance to strike!

    Onfido has a truly amazing culture and this is sometimes taken for granted, however, newer leaders don't always mirror the same energy that built Onfido to what it is now - typical growing pain but I know we'll get it right in due course.

    Advice to Management

    Further promote accountability and visibility across the whole company, especially at senior leadership level - regular updates from our leaders and transparent measurements of performance for all to see in consistent formats.

    Continue to invest in the product, in people, and tools for the team to use allowing them to work smarter.

    Room for individual contributors to share their thoughts on potential changes in processes, policies and direction isn't strong in every part of the company - people certainly feel more onboard when they're heard and kept in the loop.

    All in all, keep going!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Onfido (London, England) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Short telephone interview with a member of their HR team. Covered basics of my skill set and what I'd been working on. Also asked about the environment I wanted to work in and why I was leaving my current position.

    I then completed a short code task - creating a little game of chance with HTML/CSS/JS. I only spent an hour on it but was invited in for an interview within hours of emailing them the repo.

    Next was the in-person interview with Onfido's CTO whilst the same member of HR sat in. I tripped myself repeatedly, came across incredibly unconfident whilst answering the technical questions correctly (!). I didn't do myself any favours. Looking back, the interview was quite pleasant, I just made a mess of it.

    Lastly, they ended the interview with a 'quirky startup style' question - something about evacuating London in an hour. Following a poor interview performance I then came up with a dull generic answer to this too!
