    I have been working at Backbase (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, strong team, positive attitudes and company culture, international travel, strong ethics, cutting-edge product with a beautiful UX, one of a kind product in the marketplace, growing rapidly, great location in Midtown, reasonable working hours, start-up feel without the start-up hours, if you work hard you are rewarded. Incredibly transparent. Retention-focused. You will grow.

    Cons

    Competitive Dutch Salaries (on the slightly lower end of the average).
    Young company that is constantly rethinking it's structure.
    Internal struggle between Ams HQ and American office.
    Product is constantly evolving so it's difficult sometimes to stay on-top of the latest iteration and maintain "expert" knowledge.
    "Sales-First" mentality can be as harmful as it is productive.
    There will be difficult late nights (as there always is).
    R&D is mostly in Amsterdam.

    Advice to Management

    Stay non-political and avoid Bureaucracy. The growth of unnecessary structure within the company cab be cannibalizing to the growth of individuals.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Backbase.

    Interview

    One phone interview with Recruiting, one Skype interview with Global Head of Marketing (based in Amsterdam), three in-person interviews with Sales and the CEO. The process was efficient and transparent. Each executive was friendly but direct. I appreciated their approach and share their excitement for the opportunities ahead. They appreciated my passion for the role and we agreed it was a solid fit.
