Opportunities to Build a New Industry

Grammarly exists because our engineers have the freedom to innovate and uncover breakthroughs. These breakthroughs regularly influence our product roadmap and help chart the course for the future of our company.

Innovate Through New Challenges

"I think what we’re doing in the browser extension space is pretty unique. There’s a lot of space for innovation, and the technical challenges are demanding. Because of this, we need to be very open and at the same time very disciplined when we’re making technical decisions. There is no known best practice to accomplish whatever we need for the product — we have to find it on our own.” - Sergey Yavnyi, Tech Lead at Grammarly

Looking Beyond Grammar

"Communication is something that most of us do from an early age, and it both binds us together as people and tears us apart. And a toolset that helps people bridge those gaps, connect those dots, and communicate what they mean really does have the promise to fundamentally change how the world works.” - Brad Hoover, CEO of Grammarly

    Pros

    The biggest pro of working at Grammarly at this stage is the impact you can have on the things you genuinely care about — and these may differ from person to person. For me (nearly 2 years in), here are the top three:
    1) Contributing to the office/company culture by being myself and encouraging others to bring their whole selves to work. I'm so proud to work in a place that isn't just tolerant of my quirks — it's accepting and encouraging of them (and of others'). I genuinely love coming into work knowing that I'm appreciated for who I am and that my perspective and feelings are valid. My teammates are incredible, and together we get to build the inclusive environment that makes coming to work a true joy. [NB I'm a woman in tech.]
    2) Being around people I can learn from every day — Grammarlians are so smart, so giving of their time, so helpful, so empathetic, and so interesting! I truly learn something new every day from folks in all of our different functions.
    3) Our mission and the people we serve: It never ceases to inspire me to know that our product is making such a difference in people's lives. Knowing that we're helping millions of people around the world (we hear from our users a lot!) is such a great feeling. While some may view Grammarly as a mere productivity tool, our users tell a different story — when they talk about Grammarly, it becomes so clear that it's so much more than that. It helps them feel confident, it helps them have the courage to express their ideas, it helps them land that job, it helps level the playing field in a world where English writing skills are a prerequisite for success (e.g. for folks with dyslexia, immigrants who are non-native speakers, etc.). There's a true sense of purpose in our mission, and there's still so much room for growth.
    --
    There are so many more to list (our vision for growth, the complex technical challenges that need to be solved, our business model, super-dope powerhouse women colleagues, humble CEO who's willing to learn and welcoming of feedback, etc.).

    Cons

    As we grow in San Francisco, I look forward to seeing more representation from URMs within our organization. I'm encouraged by the steps we've taken in the past year and look forward to more — we have work to do here.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grammarly (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted after I had applied online for a phone interview with a recruiter. The recruiter was very fast and responsive. I moved on to a second phone interview which I thought was going well until they asked about my education history and college GPA. I've been out of school and a working professional for several years now, so this threw me off a bit and did not sit well. They did not move forward with me after the call.
