    Pros

    Very Interesting product to work on and contribute towards. Blackdot only tend to recruit high calibre individuals therefore you tend to work with impressive people who you can learn a lot from. It’s a fast growing business and so there is a good buzz around the office and new positions do open up quite regularly. They give opportunities by regularly promoting within for new senior positions, which is great for one’s career progression. They very much rely upon the team for feedback to aid continual improvement and process changes. A good approach and a will to becoming ‘totally’ agile. The business is technology agnostic and so there are opportunities to propose and work with different tools. The company has a great after work social culture and togetherness. Company led social events are great, good to get the Cambridge and London offices together. Salary is competitive for Cambridge.

    Cons

    Lots of tech debt as the current product originally had a much smaller shelf life with different priorities. The business want to tackle this but naturally commercial priorities affect how much can be done (vs ideal), but is on the right path. Automation is high on the agenda is and is in progress. Historically the product team have had more control and say on dev decisions than is normal. Much less so now but still a work in progress. A few big personalities in the development team that need managing. Salary is competitive for Cambridge, pension needs improving. Because the team has grown so quickly the space within the office is starting to get quite tight. Expect we’ll move soon.
