The latest conversations about Tech
21 hours ago
Going on 2 years at current 500+ employee “unicorn” $1B SaaS company. My ~100 accounts have ~$75M annual revenue. The internal analytics systems I built are referenced by c-suites/executives, provide insight to guide product/content development, built the framework for how success teams operate, and are a pillar of the tech value stack for business partners. Salaried at $60k, no bonuses/commissions, never gotten a raise. How do I navigate that conversation? Nothing has come from my efforts.

Great team, good culture, exciting work
All work from home so don't get to see the team much
- 5.020 Apr 2022App Team DeveloperFormer Employee, less than 1 yearLondon, England
- Working on a variety of different projects and so exposed to tech stacks and frameworks that I hadn't used before. - Given learning development time and budget to get familiar with these beforehand. - Good culture and friendly colleagues throughout company. - Open to taking on staff that are new to the industry (eg. graduates from coding bootcamps)
- Roles are fully remote currently with no office available to work from (may be seen as a pro for some). - Work can be sporadic at times - very busy one week, and then much quieter the next - which takes some adjusting to.

Given lots of responsibility and trust to complete projects. Also, my job title is Ruby on Rails Developer but actually, if you want you can have the opportunity to work across more stacks since there are some projects that use NodeJS, React, and Vue, for example. There is also time allocated each month to pursue personal development goals. The founder, Nick, is also very easy to talk with and inspires a collaborative and learning atmosphere
Some projects don't have as much project management oversight but this gives you the opportunity to shape the project more and suggest solutions for the client

Great team of people - Varied work and opportunity to develop a wide skillset - Given lots of independence - Support for training and development - Contribution is recognised by management - Flexible hours and remote working
- Workload can be high. However, it presents opportunity to accelerate career growth

Purr has one of the most welcoming teams I've worked with. The culture is fantastic and as well as the career development opportunities. During my role here, I've had the opportunity to learn and be mentored, make mistakes and gain loads of experience. Hats off to Nick (MD) for being the most hard-working person in the team and for his patience & mentoring, and Morteza (Strategy Director) for his support throughout my time here.
None that I can think of

Purr Group is a fantastic place to work. I worked for the company for a number of years and achieved a lot, both personally and professionally. I had to leave because I needed to move to another city, but if circumstances were different I have no doubt that I would still be a happy member of the team at Purr. They manage to strike a great balance between all things that are important to a company and workplace. This goes from a great team atmosphere and a comfortable office to excellent projects and plenty of room for career development. There really is nothing that's lacking. If you happen to interview for Purr, or are potentially going to be working with/for them in another way then trust the positive feeling you get from the place and the people - you're not wrong.
Not much I can say here. I suppose that Purr is still a relatively small company, there's no getting away from that. So this means there may be some things that are important to you that are only available at big companies. Like if you wanted to travel a lot with work or something like that, or work in a team of 20+ developers, it's unlikely that you'll be able to do that with Purr as readily as you could with a bigger company. Personally, this was never an issue for me, as I wanted that small-company mentality, even if it meant sacrificing some of the big-company perks. I don't want to speak on behalf of my former colleagues, but I'd imagine they would say the same too.

I have been with Purr for less than a year now but I couldn't be happier with my decision to join here, the team are friendly and dedicated to what they do. There isn't a strict working environment, though because of this everyone works all the harder; working as part of a team, taking on other people's commitments if they are ill or away from the office and not because they feel pressured to do so but because they care about the teams success. Before I came here I was part of a large multi-national company whose only focus was margins; it sounds cliche but Purr put people first and the people have made this company into a great place to work, with great client relationships and what can only be a bright future.
Being a non-techy member of staff means I can't get involved in the coding that goes on here but I never find myself lacking for people who are willing to answer any questions I have or give a demo when tech knowledge can help with my sales activities. I suppose the biggest con is that I've caught the programming bug and I'm now learning to code at home on the weekends but that's just because I want to see what I can achieve.

Purr Digital is a place that genuinely cares about being a great company and a great place to work. There are loads of pros, but thinking of a few off the top of my head, I'll say first and foremost the team are great. There is no awkward office politics or anything like that to navigate, and the team will warmly welcome you and are a constant source of fun and good times throughout the day. Purr also have great working conditions and top-of-the-line gear. Aeron chairs, full spec iMacs, big desks, nice office, decent working hours with mandatory lunch breaks. The work is good and varied, with lots of interesting clients and plenty of space for accommodating introducing new technologies and ways of working if an employee would like that.
Not many downsides to be honest. I guess because the company is small and still growing, technically a software developer could earn a larger salary in another sort of company (bank, in house etc...) but everyone here agrees the benefits of the company feel far outweigh the consPurr Digital Response8y
Couldn't do it without you!

As the first company I worked at, this company has been incredibly accepting and welcoming. We also have the best equipment and atmosphere, e.g. aeron chairs, iMacs, and a fun environment. Couldn't have been happier to find this company. Also as a small company we are able to have fun and relax.
There isn't a lot to find wrong with working here, one thing some people may comment would be working for a small company. At some points this can mean that you have to work a bit harder, and may not be provided with as many benefits.
