    Empowerment After Acquisition

    Often after one company buys another, you hear leaders talk about how they're going to "empower" the executives of the acquired firm. A CEO might say, "We're going to leave them alone, we're not going to mess with their culture, I just want them to keep doing what they're doing."

  • Great write-up from Business Insider on our beautiful HQ office in Hoboken, NJ. Take a look inside:

    It may be part of the world's biggest retailernow, but Jet still has its own personality. Inside Jet's headquarters in Hoboken, New Jersey, a year after Walmart acquired it for $3.3 billion, the company still feels very much like a startup.

Jet – Why Work For Us?


We’ve come together to build a better shopping experience. Learn more about our team and opportunities at Jet.

Jet is reshaping ecommerce as we know it. We live bold. That means taking risks, asking “why not”, looking where no ones looked before and bringing it!  

Jet is on the relentless pursuit to build the greatest shopping experience, while saving customers every penny possible. With some amazing technology (and a little magic), we optimize the supply chain, remove unnecessary costs, sprinkle in surprise and delight, all while saving customers even more money and we’re just getting started.

If you want to take on the challenge of building something amazing from the ground up, 
then this is the place for you.  

The Jet engine

Jet.com is an ecommerce company that is changing the way people think about online shopping. We're aggressively discovering and implementing new ways for our customers to make better shopping selections and save more money on purchases than they could anywhere else. 

On the other side of the Hudson River, just 10 minutes away from downtown New York, engineers are collaboratively designing and implementing new systems and features at the fastest growing tech startup in the east coast. These engineers are all a part of the purple family at Jet.

Jet’s mission is to create the best e-commerce experience that can only be backed by cutting edge technology. Our engineers are utilizing world class technologies to perfect a revolutionary pricing engine that will help customers save money on nearly everything. Not only are we focused on finding the cheapest prices, we are also invested in reshaping the world of e-commerce.

We dream big and in order to achieve these dreams, we need to find the right group of engineers. We are looking for smart engineers who can thrive in a fast-paced and creative environment.    

We believe that the best engineers are the ones who have a willingness to share knowledge, a desire to learn and most importantly, a passion for all things technology

At Jet, I'm given the ultimate freedom, tools and resources to create, and that alone is empowering.

    I have been working at Jet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    intellectually competitive culture yet minimum or non existent office politics, friendly and extremely smart coworkers, perks, best office space on the East coast, pay, tech events,location, well defined career path etc. I have been around for a while and worked for some very famous brands but this is by far my best job .

    Cons

    The firm should continue to strive to recruit world class talent .

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jet (Hoboken, NJ) in January 2019.

    Interview

    All interviewers throughout were very engaging. Phone interview took 45 minutes. I highlighted my interest in consumer behavior. After passing phone interview, I was invited to participate in the online game. One business day after completing the game, I received an email from HR at Jet to schedule an in-person interview. They only do interviews on Fridays, and unfortunately we couldn't find a mutual Friday that worked for nearly a month out. The in-person interview involves 3 interviews followed by the chance to ask current employees any questions. The interviewers were all so well spoken and had great answers to my questions. I had a very positive candidate experience. The interviewers did a great job at engaging with me and being present in the interview. The current employee panel was extremely helpful in getting an honest perspective at working at Jet/Walmart Ecommerce. Other posts on this feed include the common specific questions asked. I used those reviews to prepare for my interviews. Definitely take the time to scroll through and read all of the reviews! Best of luck!
