At Spredfast we are social first. That means a few things.

It means that social is our first love and it’s where we focus our innovation. From our developers to our Customer Success team to our executive leadership, we all come to work thinking about how to better connect brands with consumers in an increasingly social world.

It means that we believe customers should come first in brands’ marketing efforts. Including our own. We work with transformative marketers at the world’s best brands. We celebrate their successes and stay attuned to their needs and desires.

It means that we stay social together. Daily catered lunches, group fitness sessions, and company-sponsored volunteer opportunities are just a few of the many ways that our team stays connected. (Check out the #socialfirst hashtag to see more!)

We approach who we hire and how we perform based on a set of core values that reflect our innovation, our work ethic, our dedication to collaboration, and our whimsical charisma.

Awesomeness—We want innovation to mean more than just a good idea, but a good idea that makes a difference forever in the pursuit of awesomeness.

Freesponsibility—We hire great people so that our team has the confidence that they will “do what they say.” We give people the freedom and flexibility to get to the finish line in their own way.

Agilispeed—We move quickly. Customers are amazed at our responsiveness and speed of innovation. We act and react with relentless composure.

Transopency—Trust enables people to do great things. We believe visibility empowers us to take ownership and seize opportunities. We earn trust everyday.

Teamswork—We are one team. It takes many talents and diverse voices to make a company great. We depend on each other to make the whole thing work. We move together in one direction towards a common goal.

When we say everyone should feel included at work, we mean every single person. When we say we’re stronger when we’re diverse, we mean the success of our business depends on incorporating different perspectives. When we say we must be honest about where we have room to improve, we mean we value transparency and its place in our progress toward diversity and inclusivity.

Spredfast believes in diversity, inclusivity, equality and transparency. Learn more here.

We are on a journey to increasing equality at Spredfast. We still have work to do to achieve the diversity we strive for across the company.

    I have been working at Spredfast (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the balance of being small enough to be on first name basis, but big enough to have such a wealth of knowledge. There are so many people here who are experts in their area.

    Cons

    Being downtown has some drawbacks if you live far away.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people. It pays back tenfold.

    Software Engineer - Front End Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Spredfast (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Initial phone screen by hiring manager, general questions about professional history, technology stacks used. Be prepared to talk about what you're doing in the development community outside of work, what you're reading, what upcoming tech you're really excited about... Next was a general programming screen with an engineer. Nothing too complex here, but be aware that your JavaScript skills should be fairly strong. If you don't understand variable scoping, immutability best practices, scope closure, etc., start studying. Finally, on-site interview was scheduled. 8 interviewers, 2 at a time, one hour sessions. Be prepared to explain everything from the less commonly used CSS selectors, to the usual JS gotchas - prototypal inheritance (and how a prototype chain functions), lexical scope, mutability, parse time vs. run time - the whole lot. All in all, the interviewers are informal, and are interested in your mind - your thought process and general approach to programming, how you solve problems. Ask plenty of questions, and explain your thinking as you go.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain the difference between classical inheritance and prototypal inheritance, and what sort of problems might be be solved by each.   Answer Question
    • How does lexical scope work in JavaScript? Explain the concept of closure, and provide an example.   Answer Question
    • What is the JavaScript event loop, and how does it function? Describe the lifecycle of an asynchronous request as it relates to the event loop.   Answer Question
