      An amazing company to work for

      Aug 2, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in London, England

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Bright and friendly teammates. It's a pleasure to work alongside my co-workers; - Flexible working hours; - Great for learning and progressing your career. Lots of support from within and outside the teams. Flexibility in choosing one's path; - Variety of interesting projects. Awesome challenges and meaningful problems to solve; - High standard of engineering and best practices applied. Using a modern tech stack and keeping projects neat, organised, and efficient; - Fair, transparent and excellent remuneration package; - Awesome equipment, sensinble staff policies & meaningful benefits.

      Cons

      - Fast-paced, meaning it's sometimes a chaotic and an unpredictable journey. However, that seems inevitable in a progressive and rapidly expanding scale-up. Also, it's worth noting that this has been improving steadily and going in the right direction.

      Truly wonderful place to work

      Nov 8, 2021 - Product Analyst in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Everyone is incredibly kind, helpful and sociable while also being very driven and hardworking. - There is a reel sense of community an a belief in what we are working towards and what this company can achieve. - Career mobility and progression is taken very seriously. - Remote work has been very flexible (although who knows what the future might bring).

      Cons

      - Lots of work. This does not necessarily mean long hours though, just that you will not find much reprieve from busy days (and yes fine, sometimes it means long hours). - Since the core product is basically a collection of APIs there is limited scope for a product manager to do user research and build a product vision.

      Pros

      Smooth interview process - likable characters that made the interview much more about ethical/motivational alignment to fit the aims of the business Great team Exciting scale up to work within Lots of development opportunities

      > At the rate of growth priorities can change with little warning, but leadership is getting better at communicating with more notice.
