I have been working at OfferUp full-time (More than a year)
OfferUp has a fun and exciting culture and the potential to be one of the next big Companies in the Seattle area. The employees have the opportunity to help create products and features that make a difference for millions of users who want to find great deals or get cash for unneeded items. The teams generally get along well and jerks aren't tolerated. The atmosphere is both casual and energized, so it's a fun place to come to work every day.
Working at a startup is not for everyone. One of the OfferUp values is be scrappy, and if you expect to have all of the problems solved and all of the systems and processes already built, this may not be the place for you. However, if you'd like to participate in building them, OfferUp is a great opportunity.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OfferUp (Bellevue, WA) in March 2018.
The process started with a phone screen with a recruiter. This was mainly for culture fit and for the recruiter to get a sense of what my individual skills and interests were. This was followed by two technical video interviews. Finally there was an onsite which consisted of 4 technical interviews and a lunch interview (non-technical and isn't factored into hiring decision). Overall the process was quick and the recruiters were very helpful and responsive. Each of the interviewers were very respectful and all seemed extremely passionate about the projects they were working on.
The interviewers provided a great representation of what the OfferUp culture is all about. They were all interested in what I had to say and seemed excited about the interview process in general.
