Mission: The core mission of Liftopia is twofold: help skiers and snowboarders get out on the slopes more often, and help alpine resorts generate incremental revenue. The Liftopia platform gives alpine resorts the ability to sell advance-purchase, date-specific tickets, rentals, lessons ...
I worked at Liftopia full-time (Less than a year)
Liftopia is an amazing company. I worked for Liftopia during the 2018/2019 season and it was a wonderful experience. The team of people who work with Liftopia are absolutely some of the best. It is a very comfortable place to work, and they make you feel like part of the team as soon as you're hired. They appreciate their workers, and it's a very positive, upbeat environment that makes it difficult to leave. This is a seasonal job, however the pay is more than fair. The hours are great as well. The systems are very user friendly and easy to learn, the training is fast-paced and short so you start working right away, and the team and leaders are only a message away for any and all questions.
In all, I have no complaints about Liftopia, only many good things to say. It was a great experience and I wish each and every person I worked with the very best in life, today and always. Thank you for having me.
The only con in my opinion is the job is only seasonal.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing, because you are doing it right !! Thanks to you all, you are all AMAZING !!!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Liftopia (San Francisco, CA) in July 2013.
Brought me in for a technical interview, but ended up being too busy to actually interview me. They scrambled to find an engineer who was free that day. Even though my expertise was in front-end engineering, they had me talk to a guy in devops. He didn't ask me anything technical, and was clearly not prepared to be interviewing.
Once the VP of engineering came out of his meeting, he talked to me for approximately 30 minutes. The discussion was relatively directionless, and ended abruptly when he said he had to get to a company all-hands.
I had expected the interview to be a typical 4-5 session day, but instead got shoveled to the elevator within the hour. Not a single technical question was asked.
I hadn't heard back after 2 weeks from Liftopia or the recruiting firm they were working with (Sourcery). I dropped the firm a line, and they gave me a generic "They decided you were not a good fit at this time."
From what I saw, it would not have been a great place to work anyway. Low salaries and small stock option packages in exchange for working at a place with an outdoorsy culture. Plenty of other places that offer the best of both worlds.
