Mission: We're on a mission to improve peoples lives through technology.
I have been working at Tigerspike full-time (More than a year)
This company provides awesome opportunities for its employees such as traveling to other offices in different countries and providing stipends for professional/ personal development.
In addition, the company believes in fostering experts in the industry. It wants the employees to not only be i.e. XD designers but XD designers that specialized in i.e. interactions or information architect. If an employee is more senior and wants to venture into writing or teaching opportunities, then the company will work with her to accomplish that goal.
Overall, Tigerspike values prosperity in its employees, which reflects in the success with clients and the company's fast paced growth.
• no on-boarding
• work can be hectic at times
I applied online. I interviewed at Tigerspike (New York, NY).
Way too many rounds, process took months unnecessarily. Managers didn't answer many critical questions directly. [Lies by Omission] They described a process and structure that just isn't there.
Several phone screenings/emails with recruiter > in person-interview with manager and team > in-person interview with team members > absurdly time consuming design exercise > team presentation > more phone discussions and emails > waiting for people to get back from vacations > offer > no negotiation (on anything)
We helped Westpac’s HR department to improve the efficiency of their on-boarding process. The solution delivered exactly that, saving hiring managers time and dramatically accelerating the new starter process. Check it out: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQP1s
What initially began in 2012 as a remit for a team of four to design the user experience for the Emirates App for iPad, has since expanded into a multi-tiered programme of delivery across channels (mobile, web and wearables) http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQPlO
