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

    Pros

    Awesome workspace, perks and smart people that creates a very good work environment.

    Is very easy to have what you need, try new ideas and innovation at any level and also challenge the status quo, in this sense the company is very open mind.

    The culture is one of the key things of this company, they still having some trouble to have a real people focused culture but they are in the right direction. I think is very difficult to find a company with so great open and people centered culture.

    Company is promoting a lot autonomy in the teams to decide what to build and how in an agile style.

    Very promising product and company that could be one of the top players in the future.

    Cons

    As a company is very inmature and needs to grow, specially because the oportunity to be an awesome company is very high.

    There are some important things blocked and not changing enough fast to make real all the potential.

    To be an startup the decision making process is quite slow, what it creates the same troubles of big companies in an startup environment.

    Regarding the product is very interesting with an awesome potential to grow although the delivery is quite slow, what it makes difficult to run the business and grow enough fast as is expected.

    Needs no change a bit the culture because the behave is too familiar in some situations, what it creates paternalism with some people promoting them to voice their opinions more than other people. Promoting this behaviour causes blocked initiatives and especially a devaluation of expertise voice.

    Advice to Management

    Management have to learn a lot about how to communicate and specially manage people. Most of them are the ones were in the company from the beginning without enough management skills. If you want to keep them you have to grow their skills because there are making a very basic management faults.

    A part form that I'm not able to understand how is possible the company is trying to protect and keep the culture while is hiring people not aligned with the culture and the way of working what it creates a lot of friccion.

    You have to align before ask the people to do something, most of the issues and conflicts in teams comes because you are not aligned in very basic things.

    Please, please stop doing PIPs this is not a way to help people to improve in their position, is more a mechanism to punish and finger point. I know you don't want this then please create a real safe environment whre the people can fail, learn and grow.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Typeform.

    Interview

    I applied to Typeform along with a few other remote companies. They sent me a tech test, and I decided not to take it since I generally don't continue on with companies who send a tech test as a first step. Their HR person followed up to ask me if I planned on taking it, so I figured I'd give it a shot since they reached out. I spent a few hours on the questions, and got a form 'no' response. Unless you are desperate to get into tech, my advice is to avoid companies who send a tech test immediately before giving you a feel for the company. It's hard to get a sense of what type of support they're looking for without giving you a chance to interview first. I got a few offers from other companies who took the time to get to know me and gave me a good idea of what they were looking for before giving me a tech test which is generally a best practice in support.
