    Thanks to an investment from Accel-KKR, FastSpirng has the capital and resources it needs to innovate and grow. It is an exciting time to join the company. Employees are given a lot of autonomy and trust.


    There are no real cons besides the usual growing pains of a high-growth company.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at FastSpring (Santa Barbara, CA) in February 2018.


    I had an on-site interview with 2 members of the Demand Generation team. We went over my resumes and relevant experiences. They were both super friendly and welcoming, and the process did not feel intimidating at all. The People Operations Specialist was also very kind enough to set up the whole interview for me and make me feel welcome during my visit.

    I was fortunate enough to meet some other people at the company, and I can confidently say that FastSpring has amazingly friendly employees. Everyone's attitudes reflects their positive company culture. I also learned that their employees allow dogs to come to work every Friday. I would definitely love to work here someday.
