    I worked at Group Nine Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Warm, welcoming, non-cliquey team
    - Lots of autonomy offered, lots of room for career growth on the tech side of things
    - Transparent and open management that welcomes questions
    - Smart, capable coworkers using a mix of old and new technologies to really push media tech forward

    Cons

    - The tech team is still somewhat small so there is occasional difficulty prioritizing incoming work
    - There have been fewer team events outside of work (happy hours, etc) in the past couple of years

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Group Nine Media.

    Interview

    There were no technical questions. First was a phone screening, they asked for a github link and told me "they will be in contact by the end of the week.

    They reached out a month later for the next round. After I was finished with the phone screening with a hiring manager I was told I would be sent a project.

    I reached out to HR to thank my interviewer and after a week I got a response with the interviewers email (not a big deal they could have passed the message along). The next day they were pursuing other candidates.
