I have been working at DoubleDutch full-time (More than a year)
It's true that the company has gone through a rebirth recently. We've shed a lot of weight and become much more efficient and growth oriented. I LOVE the team we have now.
Some people have left with hard feelings.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work. You've brought us through being VC backed to standing on our own.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DoubleDutch (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.
I was contacted by a DoubleDutch recruiter to set up an initial call within three days of applying online. Recruiter was very punctual (which I appreciate) calling at the scheduled time. To be honest, the recruiter wasn't the most welcoming for an initial call with a company you are considering to work for. The call lasted less than 15 minutes and one question after another was asked down the line - which felt definitely like a quick screen. I couldn't get a sense if the answers I was giving were 'good' or 'bad' - there was little feedback. The recruiter said he would be circling back by end of that week to let me know next steps but ended up getting back the following week - which left me a little underwhelmed. I guess, overall for an initial impression of DoubleDutch it wasn't very good - felt more like DMV than an innovative start-up looking to change the event software space. There was really no opportunity given to ask questions - it was more like a 'well get back to you'. Once I heard back that they were not going to move forward with me - I thanked them for the opportunity and asked if thye could answer one question for me as a follow-up and never heard back.
