Glassdoor – Why Work With Us?


Inside the London Office

Here at Glassdoor, we’re on a mission to help people everywhere find a job and company they love, and we look for colleagues who want to join us on that journey.

As one of the world’s largest job sites we are experiencing massive growth in the UK, and we aren’t slowing down anytime soon. We are a high-profile tech company with big ambitions. We are changing the way that people look for jobs and how companies hire, and you can help us hit new heights. 

Our culture is driven by our seven core values: Transparency, Innovation, Excellence, Judgement, Accountability, Integrity and Grit. Whatever you do at Glassdoor you are empowered to do your best work every day. We’re small enough for you to get involved in many different areas of the business, but large enough to be a highly respected brand. It’s a fast-paced environment with loads of exciting opportunity for personal and professional growth. Join us, to be part of a company where you can learn, thrive and make a difference.

Glassdoor London Team on a volunteering day

Glassdoor has had an office in London since 2014 and we are growing fast. The office culture in London is typified by cross-collaboration, friendship, respect, hard work and fun. We are a diverse group of multi-skilled individuals who are focussed on creating something special, namely a company where everybody wants to work and that provides career-defining experiences. 

We all work hard to nurture a positive vibe in the London office, based near Borough Market in SE1. We have various groups and committees to organise everything from team lunches, fun nights out, Christmas parties, “Women in Glassdoor” events, volunteer days and impromptu spin classes. We undertake charity work from time-to-time, the Halloween quiz has become a firm favourite plus we are quick to celebrate individual and team success. 

Many people in the London office have been around for a long time, in Glassdoor terms, and most of the original 10 people working for Glassdoor in the UK are still at the company. We are inclusive and we have a variety of nationalities, backgrounds and skills!

If this sounds like your cup of tea, then why not apply to one of our open jobs?

Glassdoor Co-Founders

Glassdoor is one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.

Built on the foundation of increasing workplace transparency, Glassdoor offers millions of the latest job listings, combined with a growing database of company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews and questions, benefits reviews, office photos and more. Unlike other job sites, all of this information is shared by those who know a company best — the employees. In turn, job seekers on Glassdoor are well-researched and more informed about the jobs and companies they apply to and consider joining. This is why thousands of employers across all industries and sizes turn to Glassdoor to help them recruit and hire quality candidates at scale who stay longer. Glassdoor is available anywhere via its mobile apps.

Glassdoor operates as a part of Recruit Holdings’ growing HR Technology business segment. Glassdoor is headquartered in Mill Valley, California and was founded by Robert Hohman, Rich Barton and Tim Besse in 2007, before its launch in 2008.

Glassdoor’s European hub is in Dublin, with additional offices in London, Paris and Hamburg. We have sites and apps for 20 markets around the world, and in 2019 we launched in Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Spain and Italy. Our UK site launched in 2013 and we hired our first London-based employees in 2014.

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

    Pros

    Huge market opportunity, strong & passionate teammates & transparent leadership. Honestly, I'm not sure I've worked for a better company anywhere else. I am genuinely excited to come to work and see my colleagues, and work together to build on the opportunities here in EMEA.
    The overall team is very supportive and there is very little pettiness which is pretty rare in a Sales environment.

    Cons

    Don't hold back addressing negativity across teams. As we grow quickly, we need to remember to stay positive and focused on the longer term goals.

    Advice to Management

    As we continue our hyper growth across EMEA, it's important to remember where we came from as a company. I understand our culture will evolve, but remember to continue the transparency and company mission that made our brand what it is today.

    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.
