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


    I have been working at Ondeck for almost 4 years and has seen an incredible transition from last year when there were layoffs and a lot of attrition. Ondeck has made an amazing turnaround from last year and now is a profitable and stable company. There is a lot of engineering talent here and lots of cool initiatives that have been happening which will really help an engineer. Most of the negative reviews are from people who were unfortunately part of the layoffs. But things have changed a lot here and I would highly recommend Ondeck from engineering point of view. Lots of smart people to learn from and lots of cool and new technologies to learn here. My experience has been very positive here and I hope Ondeck keeps investing in technology and engineering.


    The only con i think of is probably we can add levels to Software Engineers. right now we have Software Engineer, Senior Software Engineer and then Principal Engineer for IC. Might be a good idea to add levels so that people can progress in small steps rather than looking for only big jump.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to invest in technology and engineering.
    Please have more 1:1 between engineers and higher management to fill in the gaps if any.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OnDeck (Denver, CO) in December 2018.


    The process took about two weeks, I had a phone screen with the recruitment manager, who was great at explaining the position and company, and scheduled an in-person interview for later that week. The on-site interview went well, I had four rounds of interviews, the first round in-person, the following two were virtual, and ended with an in-person. I was given a tour of the office at the beginning and the end. There were some technical issues during the virtual interviews, which made understanding the questions a little difficult, but overall it ran smoothly.
    The interview questions weren’t anything too difficult, mostly revolving around my previous experience and work ethic/culture. All of the interviewers gave me plenty of opportunity to ask any questions I had and they were all easy to get along with. A few days later I had a final virtual interview with three employees in the New York office. Overall, I had a great interview process, everyone was quick to respond and help.
