I have been working at Warby Parker full-time (More than a year)
Highly impactful work; exposure to a variety of projects; work on interesting and challenging technical problems; autonomy; opportunities to play a large role in system design and software architectural decisions regardless of title; pride in the company’s involvement with charitable organizations; their glasses are of high quality with variety of unique designs.
Not a clear define path for promotions or raises; Slightly below average salaries; slow to implement overall changes to the technical organization albeit it is moving in a positive direction.
I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Warby Parker (New York, NY) in July 2017.
I applied online and was contacted about two weeks later to take a one way video interview. The questions were very easy and the next day was contacted to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager.
The phone interview with the hiring manager was really short as she only asked three pretty basic questions. "Do you have planning, allocations and inventories already set up, or do you do most of your work in excel?" "Walk me through your resume/how you got to the position you're in now" and I can't remember the last question, but it wasn't very hard.
I thought we had a good back and forth, and was very surprised to receive an email from a no reply address at 4pm on Saturday (the interview was on Thursday).
