    I worked at Typeform full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    When you have really great people working together towards the same goals, all the outcome will definitely be outstanding and delightful for their consumers. This is how I can define Typeform. A company made of great people (not only because they're good professionals, but they're great from their heart too). Despite all the changes in the company culture in the last few years, everyone there is working hard towards a common goal and making sure that anyone in the company feels they exist and are valuable pieces of the business. Things I can definitely highlight: - An excellent infrastructure (in a sunny corner of the World!) - Friendly people and outstanding professionals - Great culture and atmosphere - Awesome perks (including a budget for self-improvement & learning) - A generous offer and relocation budget My sincere gratitude for all the opportunities. A special THANK YOU to all the people I did interact with. To name a few: - Alex C. - Gorgious D. - Albert A. - Pau M. - Cinta C. - Patricia B.

    Cons

    No companies are made only from good moments and I am sure Typeform is not an exception on that matters. Not everyone has the same understanding of the same things. However, I truly believe that if you're bound to something in common and working hard toward the same goal as everyone else in the company, every single bad moment or situation will be easily overcome in the best way possible. So, no cons. ;)

    I have been working at Typeform full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I started working at Typeform just few months ago and I can tell already it’s the best company I’ve worked for. Since day 1 (or even before day 1) I felt welcomed and taken care of, it’s not one of these old companies with non-existing onboarding process where you have to find all the information about the structure, your role and the company yourself. The person in charge of onboarding along with the whole HR team and home team (yes, they have dedicated team to make the company feel like home!) are one of the warmest people I ever met. They really make a difference and value amazing company values. My jar dropped many times these first days (the attitude, the sense of being united and welcome, such support, beautiful office, free lunches). And it didn’t disappoint me later on. My team is a very supportive and experienced group of people and I can learn and have an impact here. Now, despite these uncertain times Typeform is thriving. After all, we’re a tool to remote communication. And one of the best. And looks like working remotely is also handled very well and I am very happy about it. So proud to be here!

    Cons

    There's a lot of things to do so it's not company for just sitting for 8 hours.

    I worked at Typeform full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great product, fun environment, great minds, stable, one of the best paying companies in Barcelona, amazing office, flex (-ish) hours, and very nice people where you could make international friends for life.

    Cons

    New management changed the whole culture. People used to trust the management before that. A bit of sneaky attitude. More politics than ever before. More than half of the company left or was fired. Career/development path was promised for long time without delivering.

    I have been working at Typeform full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at Typeform has been the best decision of my life and I'm grateful for working here. There been highs and lows and that's what makes it an enriching experience! For the pros: - The product & brand is known all over the world and used by a wide range of users (from SMBs to Fortune500) and from all industries: retail, banking, tech, governmental org, non-profits... Ask around you and it's likely that someone who knows a bit about surveys has heard about Typeform. - From a customer-facing perspective, it's an amazing opportunity to 1. practises your language skills (for example: I interact with customers in English, Spanish and French on a daily basis!) 2. learn from a lot of various use cases & industry-specific challenges and truly allows to put on a 'consultant' hat to best advise customers). - The product is adding more new features and is making good progresses towards being the gold standard in surveys, quizzes and forms. As an example, in 2019, the market leader (for form builders) revamped their product to add the 1 question at a time interface, straight-up copying Typeform's initial idea. If that's not market recognition, I don't know what that is. - The user base & customer base has been growing at a steady pace over the past years and the company metrics are in the green (MRR/ARR, churn rate, product adoption, etc.) - The leadership team is made of experts from the local tech scene as well as experienced professionals from Silicon Valley, thus making for a good mix of various experiences. - The company has offices in Barcelona and San Francisco where it benefits from the local ecosystem in terms of strategic partnerships with other top-notch SaaS platforms (Slack, Google, Hubspot...). - There are huge opportunities to test and learn in the customer success team; new ways to execute on 1 to 1 or 1 to many strategies, high-touch, low-touch, tech-touch, you name it. - I have worked for a bunch of companies and the level of trust and autonomy given to Typeform employees is by far the highest. Think: flexible hours, unlimited holidays, remote work up to 3weeks/months from wherever you want (I've taken calls from crowded café in Paris, empty dinners in Oakland, California or from the dining room of my parent's house). I worked for companies where leaving at 5pm is seen as taking your afternoon off... I sometimes get approached by tech companies who still have outdated management practises (9 to 6) and where remote working is nowhere near being a reality - unless your definition of remote work is being allowed to work from home on Wednesdays afternoon to wait for your Ikea delivery. As far as I know, Typeform is the only company in Barcelona to offer this. Bonus: the amount of free stuff you get at Typeform is ridiculous. For starters: free lunches everyday (local, fresh, organic food) with menus for all diets (veggie, vegan, omni)! Typeform has its own bar & café. Our baristas serve amazing coffees or cocktails for special occasions. Beautifully decorated offices that makes it enjoyable to work here. Free gym membership with access to 500+ gyms all across Spain. Sunny terrasse in Poblenou with bbq & beers & 10min away from the beach. The list goes on and I'm sure I forgot some things.

    Cons

    Of course, there are cons and I strongly recommend anybody reading Glassdoor reviews to be skeptical about 100% positive (or 100% negative reviews). From reading some of the reviews below, I can assure you that they all misrepresent and caricature what's actually going on behind the scene. - It's sometimes difficult to make sense of all the information that is shared with the employees and keep track of objectives & focus areas. The company recently decided to put screens around the offices with the recap of the company's results, our objectives & updates to make sure everybody is aware of them. Let's see if it works. - There are organisational frameworks that have been deployed at scale within the org with out taking into account their actual relevance for some teams. This should be reviewed imo. - Past 200 employees it's difficult to keep track of who's who and we could benefit from having a 'buddy program' to get to know newcomers and help them get familiar with Typeform. - The career path took longer than expected to be fully operational but it's finally here and I'm confident it will help people grow in their role moving forward. - There have been some growing pains & cultural changes in the recent months that have affected the overall morale of the company and so it's not always been funny around here. But this is a common issue for hyper-growth startups and so not specific to Typeform.

    I have been working at Typeform for less than a year

    Pros

    - the company is growing and meeting its goals - new team members bring a lot of experience - great culture of 'being a little more human' both in the product (focus on customers' needs), and in the way we work (goals are challenging but realistic, there is space for focused work, but also to unwind at the barception, people are very nice to each other) - flexibility around working from home - the product is beautiful and keeps getting better - the data infrastructure is good

    Cons

    - not much really, some people are leaving, but at the moment I think it's a natural fluctuation - needs faster product iteration and tool adoption to stay ahead of the competition

    Pros

    The team at Typeform is really solid and the product is loved by our customers. The company has a really exciting growth plan and product roadmap for the next 2 years. The offices are located in Barcelona and San Francisco so you have a chance to travel to two great cities for work

    Cons

    Working with teams located in other timezones can be challenging, but this challenge isn't unique to Typeform
