    I have been working at Lovepop full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Amazing amount of talented and friendly individuals that make coming into work very enjoyable. Paired with a fun work environment that fosters creativity.
    - Opportunity to work on products that make meaningful and magical moments in people's lives.
    - Good benefits. 401K, Health Insurance, Disability Insurance, etc. are always improving as the company finds better options. As an example, 401K is relevantly new and the Disability coverage jumped to a much higher amount.
    - Team & Company outings, monthly breakfasts, seasonal events. Some of the memorable events include; Apple-picking trip to a farm in the fall, Red Sox game, Tree Plantings, Boda Borg.
    - Flexible vacation policy is great and for anyone that is expecting a baby, so is the parental leave policy.

    Cons

    Not much to say here as my experience here over the years has been mostly positive. Maybe that sometimes the objectives get muddied by other projects that are happening at the same time and not enough focus is put into the things that matter the most.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lovepop in October 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. First step was a phone screen with the recruiter. Some of the behavioral questioning seemed over the top. However the recruiter stated that they were looking for culture fit, he really enjoyed our conversation so I was referred to the hiring manager. Had a phone screen with the tech lead of a team. Spoke about my experience. Was given a take home assignment. You are encouraged to only spend 1-2 hours on it. When I received feedback on my code, the tech lead pointed out a couple of flaws. I was not invited to come onsite for an interview. Honestly I wouldn't bother applying, take home assignments are a gimmick and the mark of a good software engineer is the ability to work as a team to solve problems not code the perfect solution on your own.

For this challenge, we would like you to develop a simple module to perform basic variable extraction and substitution for an SVG file.
