    Pros

    Grammarly is a young company. Since it is profitable and growing, it is not a startup any more. Which tell you a bit about it's current focus. Apart from that there is ambitious project goal. Having a noble and ambitious project goal does help motivation alot. Especially if you have a nice collection of young specialists around, which Grammarly does have.

    Cons

    There are some downsides as well. If you are looking for a developer position there is not much space for promotion. Positions like VP of engineering and team leads are usually filled via recruiting rather then promotion. Big part of development team is outside US, so consider all cons if that as well.

    Director of Communications Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Grammarly.

    Interview Details

    I obtained an interview with Grammarly's CEO via a recruiter. I met with the CEO on a Tuesday to present my ideas for the company's communications plan, and received an offer to consult with the company for one month on that Friday. The interview, itself, was a great mix of brainstorming and information. It really helped me to learn more about the company and its culture.

    Grammarly typically interviews 50 - 100 candidates for every open position to ensure that it continues to build a solid, innovative team. For that reason, most full-time offers are made only after a one-month consulting gig. As such, I consulted with Grammarly for one month and was then offered a full-time position.

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared to talk about what you know about Grammarly in the interview, as well as its position in the market. Bonus points if you present ideas about how you would address this in the position for which you are applying.   Answer Question
