I worked at Indiegogo full-time (More than 3 years)
“Empower the world to bring their ideas to life?” That’s an amazing mission. Its a lovely team of people too. New challenges on the job all the time. Most people are pretty passionate about the work. Colleagues genuinely respect and are supportive of each other. Balance in work hours is great. Company takes diversity seriously. Grown up and stable management team. Really good perks and benefits, fun office. Tasty food and fun events.
Company growth is solid but not explosive. So you'll learn a lot on the job, but you won't be promoted every six months like some startups. Some recent adventures into equity crowdfunding didn’t play out as expected so folks left. New plans for growth in China still ramping up. Office neighborhood is dirty, although central SF location makes commuting easy.
Advice to Management
Keep the culture awesome.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Indiegogo.
I was referred in by an employee who is a friend of a friend. I got an email from a recruiter within 24 hours of my resume being submitted and had scheduled a phone interview with the recruiter and the Director of Engineering a few days later.
The initial interview was very broad and open allowing the director and recruiter to get a good feel for my personality and general skills. Within 2 hours of the initial interview I was contacted to setup a technical interview with one of the senior engineers. The interview was scheduled for the next day.
The technical interview was conducted via Google Hangout with a Stypi setup for coding problems and test questions. This portion of the interview started off very basic technical ability and moved on to building certain algorithms in code/pseudo code. It ended with some generic academia type questions - "purpose of inheritance, inner join vs outer join, etc".
Within 24 hours of completing the technical interview I was contact again by the recruiter to be told that they were pursuing a different candidate for the position. Overall it was a great experience - everyone I spoke to was very kind and incredibly enthusiastic. This made for a pretty relaxed setting for the various interviews.
