    Cons

    * Company going through some growing pains
    * Autonomous teams do more harm than good
    * TONS of engineering dept. Actually makes the company very, very slow at moving. Lots of outages all the time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TransferWise (London, England) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Briefly described my experience and had an OO task on a whiteboard. After that had a chat about software development and company practices. Everything was very nice, had a chance to discuss functional programming and discuss company culture. Overall a very good experience. The only bad thing is that I needed to wait for another couple of weeks for results.
