BREAKING NEWS IN TINYBEANS RECRUITMENT!
I have been working at Tinybeans full-time (Less than a year)
Working at Tinybeans for the past 6 months, it really is like I've adopted a new family. It's a super caring and collaborative team here, and it's exciting to work with so many smart, talented, driven people. Keeps me on my toes!
I love having a lot of responsibility and opportunity to learn and make a real impact for the company.
My favorite thing is reading reviews of our app and hearing first-hand just how much joy we're helping bring to families all over the world. The other day I read one from a mom based in Hong Kong and thought, "wow, I never imagined something I helped build would reach the other side of the world like that!"
I'm particularly excited about the new "open book management" policy just announced. It definitely aligns with the company's value of transparency and I'm looking forward to being even more invested in my work when I can see a direct tie to how it's supporting the growth of the business.
Like any startup, we have growing pains, and the path to success isn't always straight or well-paved, but that's also part of the fun and the challenge that leads to real growth!
The other tough thing is that, because we have offices in both Sydney and the US, juggling schedules across a 14-hour time difference can be an extra challenge. The good news is, the team is always super accommodating and everyone is focused on solving schedule problems rather than just complaining about them, which I sincerely appreciate. We also have flexible work-from-home and ability to work with managers to find compromises that work for us. For example, sometimes if I've had to stay late for meetings during the week, I'll leave early on a Friday.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tinybeans (New York, NY) in October 2017.
I was contacted by a recruiter initially, then I spoke to HR, followed by an on-site interview with the technical lead. Afterwards I was sent a technical challenge to complete. Then I met with the product lead.
