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

    Pros

    Laid back culture ( jeans and t shirts)

    Flexible work schedule which includes work from home options.

    Warm leads that you don’t have to hunt for (absolutely no cold calling)

    No micromanaging from leadership

    Opportunities for growth with a growing organization

    Big commission checks if you can sell

    Cons

    Startup so at times changes can happen swiftly with little warning.

    Low base salary- granted if you have a pulse you can make over 60K a year with plentiful commissions.

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grows to new heights maintain the casual nature that currently exists while making changes that will stimulate growth.

    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eargo (Mountain View, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Reached by the technical person, who claimed to hire engineer. But it turned out they don't want to hire people seriously, or they already have got the right candidate. Or maybe it is just an advertisement. Be cautious, don't wast your time in it.
