    I have been working at Nevro full-time (More than 8 years)


    Team: Nevro continues to hire people who are committed to helping move the company forward.
    Cross-functional approach: We accomplish more by soliciting ideas across the board. We divide the workload, we are agile, and we trust each other.
    Culture: We are a growing company and we maintain the core identity of our culture as we scale the company while redefining the messaging as necessary.


    As we are growing, we also need to have space to spread out. Management is addressing this but things are tight at the moment. Looking forward to our new space.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow people to be passionate. Creativity exists on all teams - even the teams where the processes can be tedious. Continue to listen to the small voices and allow people to define their roles.

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nevro.


    Nevro has a very long interview process and too many people interviewed and asked same questions. You meet with HR, department heads, team members and then CEO. I took another job offer while waiting for their offer.
