    a fun, vibrant place to work with smart people

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Huntington, NY

    ProsThe company has a great vibe. It’s both smart and open minded and there are no barriers between functions or between senior and junior members. Everybody talks to everybody else and everybody seems to enjoy working together. Interns are full-fledged members of the team and even the executives show a genuine interest in them.

    ConsAlthough the engineering team is split between 2 sites, communication is still very good because of investments in the right tools and a continuous search for better ways of communicating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey're already doing a great job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great startup company to work for. Fun, fast paced environment. Making a huge difference in the world.

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Huntington, NY

    ProsWe're in the business of connecting people looking for high quality work with available work. That is a noble calling. Really great people throughout the organization, including a stellar, smart management team. Our CEO and COO have tons of experience in the startup world. They really know how to grow a company from the ground up. The platform runs on the latest enterprise software stack and we are prepared to scale massively. We've attracted some of the best designers, developers, sales and support people.

    ConsThe only cons are some of the challenges of having two offices and a distributed team. It's something that's being actively improved upon, including an investment in technology infrastructure to better connect our two offices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing and we will keep growing like mad!

    Faced pace, industry changing company

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat team, fun people to work with. Very smart and experienced executive team. Lots of autonomy. Good blend of start up and enterprise culture. Standard weekly meetings and reviews mixed with a ping pong table and Friday team lunches.

    ConsWork hard play hard mentality, we have a good time but we work a lot. If you expect people to tell you what to do, you will fail here - no one will hold your hand. Sometimes our strategy changes quickly and you have to be able to go with the punches. It's an early stage tech company so there are lots of bugs to work through as we get it right.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Rewarding Work and Friendly Coworkers

    Work Market Technical Support (Current Employee)

    ProsMy coworkers are very easy to get along with and helping make someone else's day even just a little bit better is it's own reward and the scheduling works wonderfully with my college classes.

    ConsAside from the occasional unruly user there's not much of anything I can complain about. It's easy to feel good about coming in to work the next day.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
