    I worked at JustGiving full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked for the U.S. operations (prior to its sale), which meant I had the opportunity to visit the UK office on several occasions and work with many team members. Here are some of the reasons I loved it:
    -- JG is the pioneer in online fundraising. They have been doing this since before it was fashionable, before the majority of people realized it was a brilliant idea.
    -- Zarine is energetic, magnetic, just all around awesome. And she truly believes in the company
    -- I worked in a role that allowed me to interact with charities, fundraisers, and donors. It was such a privilege! I learned so much, and was able to help these great causes raise money. How cool is that?
    -- Everyone has a voice. We were encouraged to speak up, have an opinion, be bold.

    Cons

    The senior management team really pushes the idea that the company is flat, but *they* have titles and senior roles and therefore don't always understand how hard it can be to be a mentor to more junior hires, and yet not have structure. This lack of structure also means there isn't necessarily a clear career path. For some, that's a deal breaker. It wasn't for me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at JustGiving (London, England (UK)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The process was pretty straightforward. First they requested my CV, then I was assigned a programming task to do, finally I went in for the final interview.

    The role requested experience in Android development, so that was what I practised and applied for. The reality just wasn't the case, though - they were in fact looking for an iOS developer, with Android being only a "future addition".
