    I have been working at Outfittery full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers, good team-spirit, freedom to push no ideas and projects, very open C level, you can organize your working day yourself, many very interesting tasks

    Cons

    Sometimes too much growth driven, somewhat chaotic in some aspects

    Advice to Management

    See the project through to the end, don't just release and that it is.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Outfittery in July 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume and cover letter for several different engineering positions and within a week was contacted and invited to a Skype interview. The interview involved a lady from HR and the company's CTO. To my surprise the interview did not have any structure at all. The CTO told me about the different frameworks they use and asked me if I know any of them. There was not a single technical question apart from asking me if I could code in JavaScript (they should have been able to tell that I can from my resume).

    They then told me that I should send them links to my GitHub account as well as a copy of my Ph.D. thesis. The latter was not in the field of computer science so I'm not sure what they wanted to see it for. At the end of the interview they said that it would be best if I could just drop by their office when I'm in Berlin to talk to them. They did not officially invite me, though.

    Following up on the interview, I sent them the material they asked for. A few days later I received an email saying that they could not offer me a position that matched my skill set. I wonder how they knew about my skill set given the fact that the interview did not involve any technical questions or coding tests. In total, the whole process made a very unprofessional impression on me.
