Test engineering at edX

I worked at edX for less than a year

Pros

High quality free lunch every day
Working with friendly, helpful people. One coworker offered to lend a book about Git.
Good for students to become familiar with a real-world development situation

Cons

As a temporary worker, I didn't have the opportunity to feel a part of the company. For example, there was a weekly company meeting that we didn't attend.
I wasn't familiarized with the entire structure of the edX website which the organization was working on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think it's a good idea to give people a better overview.

    I worked at edX full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people of edX truly care about education and about changing the world. One of the greatest places I've worked, culturally.

    Cons

    This is a hard thing to fill out, I imagine I'm one of the few people to leave and it was for a personal reason, a feeling that they needed someone better than me for the position. So the only con here is that "Your coworkers are too good"!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep changing the world!

    I have been working at edX as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Getting to work at a company that is so actively changing so many lives for the better is a wonderful experience. Additionally everyone working there was super friendly and it was a wonderful environment to learn in.

    Cons

    Things are fairly disorganized and most devops and design staff are busy, which makes it hard to get their time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more DevOps and Designers.
