    I have been working at The Nerdery full-time for more than a year


    There's lots to learn, and if you have the free time there's a ton of fun clubs and side activities that are sponsored but not run by the company. It's a little bit like college except substituting class work for real work.


    Experiences can vary widely based on the projects you get on. To continue my earlier analogy, it's like how any school has good and bad classes, cool and temperamental clients, except you have less control over the projects you get on than classes you pick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the increased focus on competitive compensation is good, as is the move to small teams. Leadership team should take care not to lose touch with the ground floor. It gets harder as the company grows, but it becomes ever more important.

    Senior Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Nerdery.

    Interview Details

    I can’t say I had a good experience with their interview process. To me, the hiring process is belittling and revolting for senior level developers. The HR/Recruiting department is charming and friendly. However, the interviewers (or code reviewers) are pretentious and belittling. You will spend a lot of time showing them your abilities without any accolades and just for the reviewer to copy and paste critiques he/she read from the latest development blogs.
