    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA


    + Very talented team, engineers and non-engineers alike. + Fast-moving: deploys 4x a week, frequent releases of new features, emphasis on launching. + Really interesting data. + Great social environment: employees genuinely like one another, socialize frequently. + Regular travel to NY office. + Lots of goodwill from users. + Big monetization opportunity. + Good chance of being the next major, independent consumer tech company (after Google, FB, Twitter).


    + Perks are decent but not as good as at other tech companies. + LBS space still being invented, so no succinct mission statement yet. Also means that user growth has to be hard-earned through constant improvement. Can't just sit back and count signups. On the plus side- users we work hard to earn are users we're more likely to keep. + Not as trendy as other startups. The backlash and snark have already begun.

    Advice to Management

    + Keep the high hiring bar on both ICs and management, don't succumb to the temptation to grow quickly at the expense of quality. +Keep articulating the vision, internally and externally, as value proposition of LBS space is not always clear outside the tech industry early-adopter crowd.
