Venmo – Why Work For Us?


Venmo was founded in 2009 by two former college roommates who wanted a better way to pay each other back. What started off as a simple SMS platform to send and receive money has evolved into a social payments app allowing people to split bills, pay each other back for rent, and make purchases - all the while making these life stories more fun and less awkward.

At Venmo, we're working to build a payment experience that's simple, delightful, and connected. Fueled by an abundance of snacks, locally sourced cold brew, and each other, our team solves exciting new challenges every day. Venmo's mission is to change people's relationships with money and each other. And it's working - people love using Venmo but we're not done yet. We want the magic of sending money with Venmo to be in every place you use it.

There's still much more to do! We are always looking for amazing engineers and product designers to join our team. Our headquarters are in New York, with offices in San Francisco and Chicago.

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

    Pros

    Venmo has seen a lot of success over the past few years. The product continues to grow and gain popularity. Never a dull moment at Venmo.

    Cons

    Change is constant. Things move quickly at Venmo, and are constantly changing (maybe not a terrible thing).

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving the product and investing in the team.

    Interview

    Overall the experience was average.

    One thing I want to mention is that I was flown out to their NY office but was never reimbursed for my travel expenses. I contacted them about this and was left hanging. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT TRAVEL TO THE NY OFFICE AND INTERVIEW. ITS POSSIBLE YOU WILL END UP HAVING TO PAY FOR EXPENSES OUT OF YOUR OWN POCKET.

    This company prides itself as a world class payment processor, but can't pay out travel expenses to their candidates. Oh, the irony.
