Current Employee - Software Engineer in New York, NY
Current Employee - Software Engineer in New York, NY

I have been working at Knewton full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Strong, fun culture (table tennis, happy hours, stocked kitchen, unlimited vacation), great engineers, lots of communication between the tech and business sides. Devs are passionate about their work and craft, but not obsessed with fads or the hottest trends.

Cons

Eagerness to pack things onto the roadmap. Communication can be an issue (as usual for a quickly-growing team).

    I worked at Knewton full-time

    Pros

    Intellect of peers, flexibility, perks. The company has a very positive mission. This is also a place where you can grow. I would highly recommend a position here as a first job to someone fresh out of college or grad school--there is still a huge upside here both financially (ed-tech is exploding) and professionally (the company is hiring).

    Cons

    Work can be a bit brutal when integration deadlines approach. But this is the nature of the beast. If you're looking for a cushy 10-5 dev gig where you can slowly get promoted with minimal hustle on your end, look elsewhere (google?). But if you want an opportunity to both impact an organization and an industry ripe for innovation (educational publishing), look no further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job. I've heard the new CTO is great.
