My experience with Filestage has been brilliant from the start. I really liked how the survey-style application process gave me the opportunity to talk about my most relevant work, rather than stuffing a bit of everything into a generic cover letter. The interview task was great fun too – even if I didn't get the job, I felt like I'd have some cool spec work to add to my portfolio. Since joining, my opinion of Filestage has gone up and up. I'm given the trust and freedom to identify problems and find solutions in the hours that best suit me. And everyone's open to new ideas and changes, so it never feels like a battle to get work over the line. But the best thing about working at Filestage? The efficiency of everything. In previous roles, I would get thousands of Slack notifications a day, so it was easy to get distracted. Here, I barely touch it, so I can focus on creating my best work.
Honestly, nothing comes to mind.

Filestage is a great place to work if you are looking for fully remote opportunities with a amazing work/life balance while working with cool enthusiastic people from all over the world on and well established product. One of the biggest strengths of the company is that it has been structured as a fully remote organization from the start. So, all the processes are perfectly set up for this kind of work; thus, maximizing the upsides, like being able to work from anywhere with an international team.
The only challenge I've found while working here has to do more with the nature of fully remote work, which can feel sometimes isolating. The People team at Filestage does a great job of keeping the company culture alive with regular remote activities and in person company and team retreats (I haven't had the chance to attend the latter yet, so I'm still looking forward to it). However, if being face to face with coworkers on a regular basis is important to you, this might not be the right fit.

Filestage tries to stay on the cutting edge of best practices and technologies. They foster a collaborative and inclusive environment, and offer all the resources you need to do a great job including an equipment budget, professional development budget, and time to focus on learning new skills during work.
Salaries are kind of low compared to bigger companies

Fully remote Great team members No micromanagement Trust in employees Decent equipment and office budget
No con that I can point out specifically they have a bit lower salaries but being a startup it is understandable.

At Filestage they really care about you! They help you learn and grow as a person and as a professional. They will allow you to take work time to learn new things, and they will invest actual money into getting you resources to improve. There are frequent checkins with your team lead so you always know what expectations are and where you stand. Career conversations allow you to let management know where you want to go in your career and they are happy to try to help you get there. The schedules are totally flexible and you have the freedom work when you feel best as long as you have some overlap with the rest of the team. Everyone is super cool and friendly so when you are in a meeting it is a good time.
They are still a start up so no health benefits plan, severance packages in the case of a layoff, etc that you might find at a bigger company. They do have a decent office equipment budget and generous vacation to make up for it though.

Filestage has been a wonderful company. Several things worth pointing out: - Team members have always been great in helping and working with - Filestage does fun and interesting online events such as Christmas trivia, quizzes, and international coffee breaks - The hiring process was wonderful and easily streamlined - And last but not least, flexible working hours and amazing benefits!
Currently, nothing to mention. Everything is great!

- Fully remote - Great team mates - No micromanagement - Fast paced and exciting
I've been here for 5 years, it is hard to find downsides it is true you will get higher salaries at huge tech companies but the job isn't as exciting1

Flexible environment, understanding and constructive feedback all the time. What I can say that Filestage is one of the best companies I've ever worked and a Software Engineer can ever work.
Don't see any cons to be honest. Everything on my perspective is perfect.
