    I worked at Craftsy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Craftsy. The culture is hardworking but genrally lighthearted and eager welcoming. Folks take the quality of their work very seriously. Very. These leads to honest feedback and motivates a culture of growth.

    For me, much of that growth came with the flexibility to get involved in areas outside of my expertise. This was a major highlight. The ability to work with fellow creatives on photography and motion graphics teams has made me a more wellrounded designer.

    I also felt that most folks had a genuine respect for the impact of good design.

    Oh, and the Pac-Man,and Super Smash Bros tournaments were a great perk, if that's your thing.

    Cons

    The frequent organizational changes. It is (or at least was) very much a growing company. What worked at one stage does not always scale effectively. A willingness to endure inconvenient (but in my opinion necessary) desk swaps, role realignments and even manager changes is necessary.

    For me, this was more of an inconvenience than a con. Go with the flow and take advantage of the opportunities to voice your opinion.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Craftsy (Denver, CO) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Initially contacted via private message on LinkedIn by Craftsy inhouse recruiter to set up an an introduction phone call. Spoke to the recruiter via phone about my skills experience and next position expectations. I was then scheduled a phone call with a Director level member of the department. This call focused on my skills and experiences. My third phone interview was a technical proficiency discussion with a current member of the devops team. My final interview was an onsite round robin format. These were primarily an evaluation of the culture fit.
