    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 online. The process took a week. I interviewed at JustGiving (London, England (UK)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    By far the best interview I have ever had! They don't care about theoretical stuff, they don't want to you tell them principles or other things. All they are looking for is seeing if they can work with you, have a little knowledge base of TDD to be able to code right there and if they like you. It will be a pairing exercise, to create a little program and along the way they make it harder, to see how you react and how well can you organise your code and improvise along the way. They were super friendly, joking all the time and making me super relaxed, feeling like I'm coding with some friends. And it's not like they're making an effort to do so, because that's how they are in day to day life. And I was asked something that no other company asked me: "Why do you want to come and work here?"
