    Why Now Is the Best Time Ever to Join the Business Operations Team at Glassdoor

    In the midst of the information revolution, companies have more data at their fingertips than ever before. But that data doesn't mean much if there aren't people who can interpret it and strategically act on it. That's where Business Operations, or BizOps, comes in.

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

    Pros

    I joined Glassdoor 2 months ago and have no regrets at all.

    My new colleagues have all been very welcoming, supportive and clearly know what they are doing.

    Not just from my own office, but this includes people throughout the organisation - from the ones I met during the onboarding process in Chicago to my colleagues based in Dublin.

    Being in sales, the product itself is fundamental to the pride I feel at work and whether I see a career in an organisation or not. Since joining Glassdoor I have met multiple clients from a variety of industries and the huge majority have been extremely happy with the product and service delivered.

    For me, this is so important and fills me with confidence in the decision I made to leave my last company and join Glassdoor.

    I've personally experienced working for a company during its hyper-growth stage and loved it. My job now allows me to be part of a similar journey at Glassdoor, which is so exciting.

    It is truly a great time to be at Glassdoor!

    Cons

    Obviously, when a company is growing at such a pace then you will have growing pains and certain challenges. But to be honest that is what excited me about joining Glassdoor and what keeps my job interesting.

    Each day brings new challenges, but if your head is in the right place and you are prepared to work hard, then the satisfaction of genuinely contributing to the success of a business outweighs any negatives.

    Advice to Management

    As we grow across all departments, hiring the right people at the right time is crucial to our success. Let's make sure our employees aren't too stretched before we start the hiring cycle. Being proactive rather than reactive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor.

    Interview

    Initial phone call with a guy from HR, then a technical interview via Skype where they asked me questions about front-end (CDN, mobile optimisation, latency), back-end (mostly APIs) and security (SQL injection, XSS). After that, I went to their office for the last stage of the process, two technical interviews and one with the HR with focus on values.

    Overall, I didn't find them very organised or particularly friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you optimise a single-threaded web scraper?   Answer Question
    • Design a web app that has an endpoint which can receive heartbeats of some legacy systems, and another endpoint that can be queried to know which systems have not sent an update in the last 5 seconds   Answer Question
