    I have been working at 23andMe full-time (more than a year)


    At 23andMe everyone is genuinely happy and excited to be a part of this company. Each employee is passionate about the work he or she does here. I have worked in environments where staff members complain about and dread coming to work. At 23andMe I hear employees sing praises about almost every aspect of working here from the on-boarding process to the food we are served at lunch. Also, it is clear that 23andMe makes a huge effort to ensure that all the department interact with each other.


    23andMe is a startup and we are rapidly growing! That being said, right now we are a little crammed for space (i.e. there is a shortage of conference rooms, dining tables, kitchen space, and even personal space) but that is only because our new building is currently under construction.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at 23andMe in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR to set up a phone interview with 23andMe hiring manager. Communication was great, manager called exactly when they said, and we had a very pleasant conversation. Call was about 40 minutes total, but partly ran over because I asked a few questions. The guy who interviewed me was incredibly nice and easy to talk to, but I didn't get the impression I was a good fit. No super hard questions.
