    I worked at Secret Escapes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Dedicated time to work on your own personal development through hack days and personal objectives

    * Everyone is super friendly and always willing to help out

    * Recognition for when you do something good!

    * Constant strive to improve processes and code base

    * Good software development practices (code reviews, TDD, retrospectives etc.)

    * Team rotation ensures things never get too stale

    Cons

    * Application is becoming a bit too large of a Monolith.

    Advice to Management

    Try and grow tech team significantly larger so time can be dedicated to restructuring and splitting up the app into separate services using better languages/frameworks

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Secret Escapes (London, England).

    Interview

    The interview consisted of 3 stages, phone interview, presenting my task at F2F and a final interview with a short 10 min task. Team was friendly, welcoming and very professional, even at reception. I was also met on time at reception by every interviewer and received immediate updates on how and when they’ll provide feedback and proceed. I was asked intelligent and non-generic questions throughout which made me feel like they’re really serious about hiring the best person to do the job. Overall, I was very impressed with how they asnswered by questions fully as well as treated me while I was there.
