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

    Pros

    Alpha has all of the ingredients for something special and is quickly becoming the best place I have ever worked. I have never worked with a group of people that combine intelligence and caring the way my coworkers do. I’ve had other sales people drop what they are doing to help me in a pinch, product managers that jump in to help me with a pitch, and customer success managers help train me to have ninja skills on the platform. Our leadership team will do anything to help you get a deal done, whether it be introductions, new ways to move the needle or getting on a plane for additional support. They are also all incredibly experienced but have adapted that experience to fit the system and make it even better. As a remote employee I feel connected, supported and have all of the tools available to achieve success. This is the first place I’ve worked where the company rolls things out before I realize that we even needed it. It’s uncanny how that happens. On top of all of this, the people I work with are fun and people I truly enjoy spending time with. We are solving tough problems, and the bar is set high, but expectations are clear and because of this, I am doing the best work I’ve ever done. The clients we work with are amazing and we get to help them tackle some incredibly challenging initiatives. Our company is built to achieve true partnerships with our customers and everybody operates with an attitude of “closest to the problem solves it”. I absolutely love it here.

    Cons

    None really. But if I have to give one it’s the fomo that I get when the nyc team rolls to a cool event together.

    Advice to Management

    We are growing and growing fast. Let’s bottle this awesomeness as we scale.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alpha (New York, NY) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The hiring process usually involves an initial application, a phone interview and then a long in office interview where you meet and sit with different members of the team. The process is all about getting to know you as a person and how you fit into the company culture, how you work and what experience you have relative to the role. Be sure to also ask questions beyond the traditional interview questions and get to know the team.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview is all about learning more about you as a person beyond what is written on paper.
