    Our CEO, Matt Roberts, discusses redefining dining - check out what he's got to say!

    OpenTable CEO Matt Roberts Aims to Redefine The Way We Dine

    Matt Roberts, the president and CEO of the online restaurant dining reservation service opentable, does not eat carbs. Yeah, we know: we didn't believe it either. However, it's the truth: he kicked carbs to the food curb four years ago despite spending most of his day inside a bakery.

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


    The People - An intelligent and collaborative workforce that makes it enjoyable to come into work every day. Everyone does seem to respect one another professionally as well as personally; the people are genuinely nice. People also ask the right questions, and move forward on ideas accordingly (Decisions are thoughtout and most of the time are backed with data).
    The Location - Downtown San Francisco. Can't really beat where the HQ is, and the office space is welcoming.
    The Happy Hours - Creatively themed and a lot of fun. Not overproduced (nor a waste of dollars) these events typically are centered around the employees. Most notable have been Halloween, Kentucky Derby with employees riding large toy horses around the office, St. Patricks Day and then the impromptu happy hours that happen out of thin air and typically include people from various departments.
    Base salary is competitive and the RSUs add a nice touch. Happy with the benefits too.
    Seems to be a time for opportunity and growth for the business and me as an employee. I'm excited for the growth of the product.


    At times I feel like the work hours can be a little long in comparison to my friends that work at other companies in the Bay Area but in all honesty I think this could also be a result of me not feeling the need to rush out of the office right at 5pm. (The hours are better than east coast NYC hours)
    401K match seems slightly low but the RSUs make up for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to have been a very positive shift for the company over the past year or so. This began prior to the Priceline acquisition, and has continued onward. I'm hopeful that management stays this course, and continues to create and drive innovative features for our products.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at OpenTable.

    Interview Details

    First interview was an on-campus interview where I solved a coding question. Next was a 4 hour interview onsite consisting of 4 different interviews. Some of these had me solve coding questions, while some involved talking about the company and designing systems related to it. Good experience, but I did not get an offer.
