I Love AWeberSince Tom Kulzer founded AWeber in 1998, many bright, creative problem-solvers have joined the team in Chalfont, PA.

As we enter our 18th year in business, our talented team continues to expand as we accomplish our mission of building AWesome tools to support our growing base of customers. Driven by that mission, our team uses a set of six core values to guide our decisions and innovation on a daily basis.

Create Remarkable Experiences

Anyone can say they're remarkable. But how many companies will, say, knock your socks off with their customer service and then send you a new pair of socks in the mail?

That's the kind of thing AWeber does. We know our customers' names and we're here seven days a week with personalized support.

Execute With Passion

The key to creating remarkable experiences is our passion to drive and deliver results. Once we commit to an idea or task, our team plans and executes with passion. Providing fantastic service and support is not something we take lightly, it's what compels us to get up in the morning and make a difference.

AWeber customers are focused on growing their businesses and providing value to their own customers. We strive to provide them with the best tools to do just that.

Foster Respect & Cooperation

At its core, AWeber is a family. A warm, fuzzy, 100-person (and growing!) family. But how does a big team feel like a family?

It's all in our culture of respect and cooperation. It doesn't come from policy, it comes from treating people like people ‐ the way we all should be treated. Teams openly collaborate to solve problems, and we all work together to make our service the best it can be.

Our totally open workspace helps the collaboration along. We're not just the anti-cubicle office. We're the anti-office-door office where everyone is accessible.

Listen to What People Say About Us. Invite Feedback

You can't run a helpful company in a vacuum. That's why feedback is so important to us - internally and externally.

We're regularly named one of the best places to work in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania for a reason. Our internal suggestion boards, team surveys and Net Promoter Score tracking probably have a little bit to do with that.

Customer feedback is just as important to us. Our user experience team is continually using our customers' suggestions to upgrade our service.

Learn. Educate. Innovate

We're the ones who invented autoresponder emails, so we know all about innovation. As our CEO likes to say, "Dream big, fail fast and iterate on what works." Constant education is a big part of that. We encourage team members to keep learning by attending events and conferences or continuing formal education in their field.

We're all about educating our customers, too. We want your email campaign to be the best it can be, because when your business succeeds, we succeed too. We share all the advice we've learned in blog posts, webinars and guides - plus, we host monthly educational meetups at our headquarters.

Don't Take Ourselves Too Seriously. Have Fun.

As serious as we are about our service, we seriously enjoy every minute of our work here. And we know how to have some serious fun.

Sometimes we kick it old school with pinball and arcade games. Sometimes we flaunt our athletic sides with ping pong, foosball and basketball. Sometimes we shoot each other with Nerf guns.

It's all about loving what you do and having fun while doing it.

Life at AWeber

Smarter Careers

AWeber employs some AWesome people. Inspiring thinkers, passionate creators - everyone brings something to the table. And you have the AWesome chance to learn from and collaborate with these cool minds. Whether it's marketing, design or engineering, every interaction gives the opportunity to nurture your skills.

AWesome Surroundings

We're not just built for collaboration, but also for fun! Ride the slide to the cafeteria for lunch prepared by our 3 in-house chefs. Catch up on shows in our state-of-the-art movie theaters. Or embrace your competitive side with ping pong or a rack of pool. When it's time to get back to work, roll your desk where you need it to go to work more closely with your team members.

    I have been working at AWeber full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Since joining here at AWeber, I have been welcomed with nothing but open arms. With all of the support I received from my manager and colleagues, I have been able to hit the ground running and get right into a normal day to day. The training period you're given during your first 1-2 weeks was also extremely helpful in learning the product inside and out.

    The biggest pro for me is the work-life balance. This was something I didn't have at my previous role and was more than pleased to find that the work-life balance here is REAL. As long as you are working hard day in and day out, you'll be able to get in at a time that's convenient for you (between 8 and 9) and leave right at 5 (or before if you need to!) I feel like I'm treated like an adult here and I'm trusted to do my job without too much oversite and NO micro-management.

    So far, so good!

    PS: the people you work with here make coming into work everyday inspiring and enjoyable!

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons other than the maternity/paternity leave policy. I know that management is working on this though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees! The feedback you've implemented has seemingly made this place even better, so the AWeber process is working.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AWeber.

    Interview

    Classic HR "screening", which is usually generic questions that you can expect from someone in HR asking a technical person to answer. If you don't sound like a complete idiot, it's followed by two hours of online algorithmic testing that's scored, and also development that's evaluated by some mystery developer. In summary, it's at least a day, if not more, of interruptive work... and that's just to GET an interview. You will then wait weeks to hear back (while you could be accepting another position). It's about the least personable way I've ever seen a company interview someone, and I can't say it's a great way to really find the best people either. I can only imagine they came up with this process because the HR department got tired of filtering out candidates... but it also means they will lose really good ones.

    Interview Questions

    • The online algorithmic testing is 2 hours of trying to figure out multiple complex problems. It's also something you'd rarely face in the real world unless it was architected really poorly or you were dealing with massive amounts of "dirty data".   1 Answer
