I have been working at Skyscanner full-time (Less than a year)
High engineer level, rapid development, open culture and great opportunities to start your career.
I cannot think of a big downside of working at Skyscanner.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Skyscanner (Edinburgh, Scotland).
The process consists of automated online coding tests, a phone conversation and a day-long set of interviews in one of the offices.
They are pretty flexible regarding your time and was able to adapt the schedule to each other's needs fairly well. You do end up with talking to a lot of people both on HR and on tech side; sometimes it's difficult to keep track who is responsible for what and who should you ask questions from.
All the coding, phone screening and in-day interview sessions are pretty reasonable and quite friendly and conversational. It's actually a good experience.
You do not know what team you are landing to until the very end though and you have little to no say in it. Most likely you won't meet or talk to your future team during the interviews.
