    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at DigitalOcean full-time


    Leadership cares about me and my growth (professional and personal!). Flexible PTO policy and work hours. Great work-life balance.


    Lack of diversity amongst leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, my experience at DO has been great! Keep up the excellent work. I would like to see diversity hiring made a priority in the coming year.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DigitalOcean in January 2018.


    The recruiting process at Digital Ocean is very impressive. The recruiter I worked with was phenomenal. He went above and beyond to match up multiple interviews with various stakeholders to my availability (which wasn't always easy) and was great at timely follow up and feedback.

    The DO team members I met were people one would want to work with; each added their perspective to the role and the future of the company. The overall process was organized and set DO apart from other organizations.
