I have been working at Smartly.io full-time (Less than a year)
I am very new at Smartly, but can already see that the company is putting in a number of safeguards and processes to facilitate the rapid growth of the company. Company culture is extremely important here, so far as the founders are willing to sacrifice growth if necessary. The recruitment process was very tough (8 interviews) including learning the Smartly platform and value proposition to present back to the team. Looking back, this was so essential to understand what Smartly was about and to ensure that I could start with lots of prior knowledge of the business.
So far, everything is great. Myself along with some other new starters spent a week in Helsinki for 'on-boarding' to meet the teams and learn more about the business.
UK office could have more perks to bring in line with Helsinki HQ, however understand that these are being added over time.
Advice to Management
Rapid growth has its challenges, but they can be overcome. As mentioned in lots of other reviews, do not sacrifice for company culture for anything!
I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Smartly.io (London, England) in June 2018.
My experience was great, Smartly's interview process is very unique and i enjoyed it! It helped me to learn more about the company and culture. I met around 3 different people and they were all very nice and seemed like great people to work with. I couldn't finish the interview process because I received an other offer.
We are thrilled to announce that Smartly.io has partnered with Pinterest as a Marketing Partner for Advertising and Creative. With Pinterest, we're taking the first steps towards becoming multi-platform, which means we're into some interesting learning opportunities!
