I have been working at last.fm full-time (More than 8 years)
Unusually, it's a company where people can contribute to the vision as well as working on the implementation. Feedback gets listened to. Also, if you want to work in music, it's a company that isn't haemorrhaging money, unlike competitors…
Not enough people to execute the vision. Need to hire more.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at last.fm (London, England (UK)) in March 2010.
I had two phone interviews about general c++ questions.
