    • Everyone is valued, no matter which team you're on.
    • Founders are well-grounded and take the time to listen to you
    • Vibrant, youthful team overflowing with talent (yet still humble and always looking to learn)
    • Workers are largely self-directed (yet still accountable to peers)
    • Flat hierarchy and complete transparency across the company.
    • Can choose SF & NY; can transfer freely
    • Depending on your team's situation, you may have good travel opportunities (SF<-->NY and recruiting ops)
    • Catered breakfast and lunch

    You'll work on something that matters. The college-aged crowd LOVES the product.
    You'll work with the nicest and most supportive people you'll ever meet.


    • There's some technical debt that could use refactoring.
    • Writing good tests is hard. Some teams may want you to write tests for the sake of having tests. Would have liked more direction on how to test code effectively.
    • "Bugs" come at a much higher price than they would at a social network company, so be cautious that you're dealing with money.
    • Paypal is a large bureaucracy with so-so public reputation. Usually they stay out of the way, but they can be annoying to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Preserve the Venmo culture and VenmoCorp - Don't let Paypal kill the vibe.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Venmo.

    Interview Details

    First you apply online, then there's phone interviews, then a coding challenge that they send you, and then an onsite. Fairly straightforward. The onsite has both technical interviews and behavioral. They want to check for culture fit above almost everything.
