I have been working at Domino Data Lab full-time (Less than a year)
Smart people who listen to direct feedback. This takes a bit of getting used to at the inception, but is universally a positive. The team moves quickly with new ideas & works earnestly to improve the platform in ways that make sense for all of our customers & for our future vision.
As with any startup there are times where you're wearing more hats than you may be comfortable with. However, this is as much of a pro as it is a con when you consider what a stellar learning experience it is.
Advice to Management
Trust your employees to thrive in the environment you've set up. Continue to set direction and manage, but work to find higher value tasks that will deliver faster growth - rather than getting mired in detail. Hire more marketing.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Domino Data Lab (San Francisco, CA) in July 2017.
Having been both an individual contributor as well as a hiring manager with multiple companies, it is not an exaggeration when I say I've reviewed ~1000 resumes and been involved in ~100 interviews.
The operative word is resume. Due to rigid HR screening and traditional recruiters, the recruiting process hinged on resume review rather than actionable qualifiers.
Domino was a refreshing process, beginning to end. Rather than asking me to regurgitate my work experience, we discussed culture, what motivates me, engaged in role playing, and partook in a rather rousing take home challenge. The challenge allowed me to get creative on how to take an NLTK classification model from ideation to model deployment via the platforms powerful, yet simple, API endpoints.
Imagine that, hiring based on merit over resume writing
