    Pros

    Fast Moving company with tremendous growth. We get exposure to many areas of the biz - Tech Systems, Marketing Systems, eCommerce Tech, Operations Technology.

    Working on really cool stuff such as Mongodb, TalenD, AWS and Big Data and Data Science projects.

    Dynamic Senior Management with Servant leadership and Innovative culture. They are always willing to help and listen to your ideas. They want us to think out of the box and implement ideas. I just launched a feature on the main site and instantly saw the great results of my work and got instant recognition.

    Great holiday benefits, summer friday offs, considerate when you need to work from home.

    Cons

    Lot of exciting stuff to work on, but need more resources to super track the company for success.
    Need more fund for developer training and learning.

    Advice to Management

    Great management team, should look at improving the benefits to attract top talent in Silicon Alley.
    Also, improve retirement benefits.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fareportal (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is more technology agnostic and non-algorithm/non-data structures.
    It's about design,OOp concepts and practical implementation ideasWhat other tools can be leveraged (distributed messaging like RabbitMq, zeromq etc.)

    The hiring is smooth. But their immigration lawyers are not great.
