New Relic is a San Francisco Best Places to Work award winner, an Oregon “Top Workplace” award winner, named a leader in the Gartner’s 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015 “Magic Quadrant” for APM companies, a Top 100 OnDemand Company, Best of SaaS (THINKStrategies), Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing (CRN); 10 Cloud Management Companies to Watch (NetworkWorld) – the list of accolades goes on. More important than all of that: we provide challenging work, opportunities to learn, high quality teammates, a standard-setting product, and a company on the move.
We provide competitive compensation, equity and big-company benefits (medical, dental, etc) -- all while maintaining the energy, agility, and fun of a start-up.
New Relic is most decidedly an equal opportunity employer. We eagerly seek applicants of diverse background and hire without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, individuals with disabilities, age, sexual orientation, protected veterans, or any other characteristic protected by law. Note: Our stewardship of the data of many thousands of customers means that a criminal background check is required to join New Relic. We will, nonetheless, consider qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records in accord with applicable law, including the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance.

I have been working at New Relic full-time (More than a year)
I've been here nearly 2 years, and have found:
- Smart people
- Great customers
- Challenging problems to solve, many related to scaling quickly
- A humanist culture focused on solving real problems for our customers
- Lots of opportunity to grow as the company grows
The place is definitely going through a transformation and people are working hard to retire "debt" that has been deferred after growing so fast for 9 years so we can keep scaling with less hiccups. As a result, there are some rough spots, but people are pulling together to work through them. Typical growing pains in my view.
There have been some recent changes in Sales and Marketing leadership that are starting to improve the culture - my manager is very invested in my growth and I can see a systematic effort to improve lead flow, systems, and comp plans.
- Dealing with growing pains
- Equity awards could be a bit more generous, but not unusual for a company this size
- Our broad platform means it's taken we some time to ramp up on all the tech
- Finance and Legal seem to have more involvement in deal approvals than I am used to
Advice to Management
- Support experimentation
- Keep building up Product Marketing - it's getting a lot better, but is critical it be strong to help us with messaging to customers
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at New Relic (San Francisco, CA) in July 2017.
For the interview process on the marketing end, I initially met with my VP, head of competitive, and those who would be my peers. the interviews went smoothly, and I genuinely felt that everyone cared about interacting and gathering my feedback...I felt welcome.
They wanted to my approach to product marketing, specifically around moving products through a go-to-market strategy.
After initial interviews with marketing, I moved on to speak with members of their product teams. I believe they wanted to understand how well I would work alongside my peers within their product division.
In all, their interview process ran smoothly, with a rep from recruiting guiding all interactions and next steps.
The people at New Relic are serious about making great products for their very technical DevOps audience, but not so serious that they avoid talking about the human element (which matters equally to them).
