"What we do matters"
Loving it matters.  Owning it matters. Doing it matters.


Loving it: We’re in the business of helping people. Period. We get to impact our users, our partners, and each other in significant ways each and every day. They’re all in and so are we.

Owning it: We all have a seat at the table here and we all contribute to the success of our company. We show up, take responsibility and have each others backs. We take the initiative and always go the extra mile.

Doing it: We say what we mean and do what we say! We take on big ideas and get the job done. We are a group of innovative thinkers and down down-in-the-dirt doers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at XO Group (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Met with the recruiter for an initial phone screening and then the hiring manager a few days later. Interview process was pretty simple, but I found the interviewing experience to be kind of unprofessional. A week goes by and I hear nothing, so I email the recruiter and I get no response. I had to email multiple recruiters just to get a response. Irrespective of whether I made it through or not to the next round, I would have liked some feedback and at least a response back from the company.
