I have been working at Snap full-time (More than 3 years)
Have worked @ Snap for nearly 3 years.
I love working here. Snap is a very fast paced office with tons of growth opportunity and a high upside in overall compensation. I will definitely stay my 4 years, minimum.
Lean teams, so you learn a lot and have a major impact on what you're building.
Our Sr. Leadership is STRONG. Jerry Hunter and Co. are very ambitious with what they're building and I'm excited to be a part of that team.
The vision of what we've built has changed the way people communicate and consume media. That's pretty cool.
Snap isn't a well oiled machine, which is what attracted me to the company in the first place. I was tired of being simply a high performing number at a large tech company.
Snap is not as structured as Google or Amazon. We're in a growth phase between a scrappy unicorn start up and an impactful public company. Not everything is perfect, but the people that work here care about the company and are working very hard to improve the inconsistencies.
Advice to Management
Google does a really good job of showing their employees that they appreciate all of the hard work/hours you've put in. A little bit of appreciation can go a long way.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Snap (New York, NY) in March 2018.

Dont waste your time to be interviewed in Snap Inc. They called me for the first telephone interview and asked me to solve 2 task. First task to understand and tell the interviewer the logic of a provided code. which is simply a token replacer. and the 2nd one is to write a code with your preferred language. which is nothing but to print each word sorted by their frequency in a string. I finished way before time and the interviewer said "You finished so early". For me like what the hack.
Then 2 days after I got email from the snap recruiter saying "You demonstrated several strengths, but we feel that there is not a perfect match for the qualities sought in the Senior Software Engineer, role at Snap Inc. Although it is understandable that you may desire feedback, we are unable to provide recommendations or details regarding specific interview outcomes."
No desire to provide feedback! A complete waste of time!
