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

    Pros

    I have been at Diffbot for 8 months now and here are the things I like:

    - We are solving a difficult problem
    - We work with web-scale data, ML and large software systems
    - Many real companies, big and small, pay to use Diffbot to add more value to their offerings. This is a testament to the fact that Diffbot adds tangible value to their business.
    - We are research driven with both in-house research and collaboration with academia
    - We are a small team with large per-capita contribution to the product
    - We are metrics driven and attempt to quantify everything we produce
    - It's a culture driven by integrity, responsibility, respect and challenges.
    - Great CEO and early team. Mike set the tone for the technology and culture at Diffbot and let the rest of us mould it into a collective culture.
    - Snack bar, pantry, paid lunch, fully covered medi-dental-vision, pet-friendly

    Cons

    - It's a startup and it's not for everybody.
    - The software is large and complex written by prolific coders. Working for large systems is, again, not for everyone.

    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Diffbot.

    Interview

    The interview process was very practical, focusing on your ability to perform and complete tasks that they will require. I went through a phone interview and then went onsite. Didn't make it pass onsite, so I don't know if anything happens other than that.
