    I have been working at Thumbtack full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    • Lots of opportunity to learn if you come from a smaller company/start-up
    • Lots of opportunity for IC/leadership development
    • High ceiling for career development within 1-4 year time span given the company's initiative to invest in its people
    • Global opportunity and at the right stage to impact your career growth
    • Growth mindset culture
    • Onboarding is strategic and ideal for crafting a high touch point employee experience
    • Average tenure here is lengthy and impressive compared to rest of bay area companies and start ups
    • Company has promising future in its ecosystem
    • In-house chef team is the cherry on top

    Cons

    • Legacy tech, systems, processes need updates/upgrading for future scale
    • Some operational systems and streamlining of some specific team analytics/data could be improved

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing and nurturing talent and development of employees.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Thumbtack in December 2015.

    Interview

    Interesting technical project test, followed by two rounds of online interview each with fairly simple coding problems you could tackle in any language. Unfortunately I froze up during the interview, but the interviewer was polite about it.
