    Pros

    Tight knit teams, fun environment, lots of development opportunities
    Super easy commute from World Trade Center
    Autonomy with internal projects
    I was a customer for years prior to joining. Every interaction with the customer care team has been amazing, which was the big reason I decided to join.
    The Employee Services team comes up with the most creative ideas to ensure we are all taken care of - from cinco de mayo to subsidized music lessons to take your kids to work day, they go above and beyond to ensure everyone is happy
    General development opportunities - SDE bootcamp, Ted talks Fridays, internal development courses, etc.

    Cons

    Your responsible for bringing yourself up to speed and figuring out where to go for info. This is the flip side to having an autonomous work environment.

    Advice to Management

    None - everyone is doing a great job. All hands meetings ensure visibility into company wide goals.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Quidsi (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was professional. It was flexible so I had time to prepare for the interview. The recruiter response fast and the team was able to answer all my questions about the role.
    After one round of coding phone interview, I was invited to on-site interview. There were 5 rounds of 1 :1 interviews. 1 round of coding, 1 round of system design and 3 rounds with managers. Besides coding questions, many behavior questions are asked during the interviews with managers as they are looking for a team player.
    It is really fast pace startup environment. It has great support from Amazon and also exciting culture.
    Really enjoyed the whole process.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was not difficult. More behavior questions are expected to make sure you are a team player.   Answer Question
