    Pros

    There aren't many 5 star companies out there. This is one. Read the reviews. At Cro Metrics you are listened to, in an uncommon way. You work with some of the most dedicated, creative, kick-ass pro's in the industry. The culture is the company's biggest asset.

    You won't always be patted on the back and told how great you are. There is a culture of radical candor in place. But you'll always be treated fairly and with respect and be challenged to improve on a daily basis. And your accomplishments will be celebrated.

    Cons

    Depending on your geo location, comp may be on the soft side. Benefits are awesome though, as is the autonomy, the respect, and the career growth this company affords you. For me at least, it's not a close call.

    Advice to Management

    You have something special here. Keep it front and center even as the company grows.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CROmetrics in August 2017.

    Interview

    1 - Application: there is a work sample you need to create with a hypothesis backlog of at least 6-8 ideas for a sample site (45 min).
    2 - Phone interview: you'll speak to the leadership team on a video call (30 min).
    3 - Paid interview: this is a 10 assignments process each taking about 1 to 2.5 hours. I'm currently half way through the assignments. Someone will shadow you during this phase and ensure that you fit the team's culture, processes and that you are actually skilled for the position. It’s also an opportunity for you to test the water before you jump (1-2 weeks)

    Because the position is remote and requires certain skills (communication, ability to work remotely, experience, etc.), I think that the company had to create a unique hiring process to filter candidates. That being said, I understand that it's not for everyone. If you're in a hurry, have bills to pay or are applying to 10 positions per minute without reading job descriptions, you'll probably just skip this one.

    Personally, I think that the hiring industry is broken and found this process refreshing, respectful and fun. Considering that I spent countless hours re-entering my resume field by field on outdated HR sites, I see this process as an HR innovation and am willing to spend the extra time. Strongly recommend applying.

    Interview Questions

    • Create A Work Sample
      The following is a typical task you would be doing on a daily basis. Follow the steps below to see if this type of work interests you and is a good fit.
      We want to know how you think about designing elegant product solutions focused around increasing conversions.
      Here is the website for a past client: Hired.com. Hired spends a lot of money (e.g. through paid ads) to drive applicants, primarily software engineers, to their site. Their goal is to increase the number of leads/applicants that complete the signup flow and are ready to be hired.
      Your first task is to come up with a hypothesis backlog of at least 6-8 ideas you have for improving conversions for Hired.com. An example of a hypothesis is: “Adding a video to the Hired website will help job candidates understand how Hired works and therefore, increase conversions.”
      Once you’ve developed your hypothesis backlog, choose one of the ideas that you believe is most likely to increase leads.
      Write a spec for your chosen idea comprised of the user story, any supporting data, expected user or page interactions, engineering notes, etc. Optionally, you may also produce a wireframe and/or a visual to go along with your spec, using any number of UX tools such as Axure, Balsamiq, Invision or even simple pen/paper sketching. Just be sure to submit your spec as an image so anyone can view it without special software.
      In a real-life client situation, you will work with the client to create a testing roadmap supported by data that aligns with the client’s KPI’s. You’ll then write a spec for the experiments, and will work with engineering to implement and QA the experiment. Once the test is implemented, you’ll run an A/B test, share the results with the client, draw insights from the test, and develop new ideas for testing.   Answer Question
