I have been working at Bending Spoons part-time (More than a year)
Very casual, energetic and enthusiastic workplace. A very diverse, rich and international community, where everybody is super clever, super friendly and super helpful. The company takes very very good care of its employees.
If you are not careful, the wonderful free food in the workplace can get you to gain a lot of weight!
Advice to Management
Keep the marvelous work!
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bending Spoons (Milan (Italy)) in July 2015.
I applied through the company website, attaching my resumé and cover letter. Then there was a first interview via Skype with one of the founders. Then a coding challenge which is quite demanding in terms of effort, where they test your ability to write good software and solve non-trivial problems. Then a problem solving phase, on their website, consisting of 8 quite tough problems, each of which took between 60 and 90 minutes to complete. And finally another technical interview with the founders.
I *really* appreciated that they did never ask me about my current (at the time) compensation. They based their offer solely and completely on the information they gathered through the interviews with me. In fact, they made me an offer that was perfectly in line with what I believed I was worth (taking into account the cost of life in Milan/Italy, etc), and there was no need to negotiate anything. This is really rare in Italy.
