    I have been working at JOOR full-time

    Pros

    - I have learnt more in my first few months at JOOR than in any previous role. The company encourages you to hit the ground running. It's challenging but full of opportunities to learn from your mistakes and grow. - I really value how active and connected upper management are within the company and find this incredibly motivating. - Working with the amazing brands on JOOR and directly seeing how the platform can make...

    Cons

    - Whilst long hours are necessary within the industry, it would be really good to see more importance placed on productivity and encourage a more strategic working culture that helps employees best serve the company by 'doing more in less time'. - In turn, it would be great to see more of the head office activities such as talks and workshops rolled out to outer offices.

    Advice to Management

    JOOR is a great place to work and a focus on productivity as highlighted above would really help in further enhancing employee experience.

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

    Pros

    Joor is genuinely an incredible place to work at. As an engineer I value two things: 1) Work Culture 2) Continuously educate and be educated be coworkers I can happily say Joor nails these both well. Special care is considered during the hiring process to ensure that everyone working at Joor is open minded and easy to work with. While this makes for productive workdays that promote collaboration, it also makes...

    Cons

    The one issue I would point out is that as an engineer, JOOR does have to work with a lot of old code. A lot of it does not scale well. A lot of it becomes problematic. It's a relic of what JOOR used to be years ago, but something we still have to maintain. A fun challenge to solve sometimes but definitely a frustration most of the time.

    Pros

    JOOR has a great company culture (they value employees!) with a lot of dedicated & bright people. They value diversity, inclusion and transparency for employees. The company also really values their customers and the teams are all very motivated to make a difference. There are fun events and a cool office space that's pretty centrally located. The kitchen is stocked with snacks and they have regular happy...

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons because honestly I can't think of any for a prospective employee who doesn't mind working hard and who tries really hard. It can be stressful but if you care about your own personal performance..it's going to be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep valuing your employees and setting the bar high! Kristin (CEO) is an amazing leader and has energized the company.
