At RealSelf we believe in extending the life-changing power of confidence to people across the globe. To support that belief, we support and bring attention to global and local needs. For us, giving back is not something that happens just once a year. It’s at the core of who we are.

Global Access to Medical Care

We want to make a real impact on global access to necessary reconstructive surgery and medical treatments. Worldwide, more than five billion people lack the ability to get the basic surgical care they need, leaving them living with reparable birth defects, burns, or other injuries. RealSelf funded surgical trips to India and Vietnam, and in 2016 we launched the RealSelf Fellowship program.

 
FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

The RealSelf Fellowship program provides financial support to doctors who donate their time to provide care and training to underserved communities around the world.

OUR SUPPORT

The program was inspired by our participation and support of surgical teams that provided life-transforming care for those who lacked financial access. Learn more about our efforts in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, andDehradun, India.

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

    Pros

    I was recently injured and have had limited mobility for the last month or so. From the minute the injury occurred to today, my team and the company in general have gone above and beyond to help me. As I look back on this experience, I find myself forever grateful to work for RealSelf. I have felt this way from the minute I joined and honestly didn't need a reason to like this company any more but this whole ordeal has simply reaffirmed how truly lucky I am. The team allowed me to work from home as needed and provided rides to and from work and doctor visits. They even provided meal delivery service while I was stuck on the couch after surgery! If this injury had happened to me while working at either of my two previous jobs, I likely would have needed to take significant time off of work during the recovery period. RealSelf is truly a special place filled with people who genuinely care for one another. While I hope I never have to go through something like this again, the experience, as a whole, has brought many things to light. In conclusion i'm just so honored to be a part of this great organization!

    Cons

    The only cons I can think of is that I am no longer able to play on the company soccer team.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RealSelf (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I applied and had a phone screen, a data challenge, and an in-person tech screen with a manager. I also had an on-site interview with three members that spanned the range of product manager, data engineer, and business analyst manager. The interview questions reflected this, with focus on how to address a few different business case studies, SQL, a little discussion about the data challenge, some high-level ML questions, and logic/estimating numbers (sort of brainteasers, but mostly to follow order-of-magnitude back of the envelope type calculations to see your logical process).

    I found the questions to be fairly easy and straightforward. Although I didn't think the role was the right fit for what I wanted, I really enjoyed spending time with the team and it's clear that everyone there really likes working there and is passionate about their role in the company. Their recruiter is wonderful to work with and it is clear they put a lot of effort into the recruiting and interview process (others have already mentioned the swag bag, gift card, charity donation, etc.).

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about my experience and background as well as why I want to join their team. How would you explain X concept to your grandparent? How would you optimize pricing for X situation? Write a SQL query to find users that took X action between X dates. Many of the same types of questions have been mentioned in other reviews.   Answer Question
