    I have been working at Amplitude Analytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people, product, and clearly defined path of where we’re heading as an organization is like nothing I’ve been a part of. Spenser on down there is a focus on scaling our culture to build a successful company for the long term. The support, communication, and openness to experiment brings a new purpose to what we accomplish as a team. As a fairly new employee the experience has exceeded my lofty expectations.

    Cons

    We are maturing as an organization and with that comes change.

    Advice to Management

    We are just scratching the surface of what we can accomplish together. Keep setting the example of what a building a great company the right way can look like.

    Pros

    Great work life balance for a startup. Work the hours that make sense to you with unlimited personal time. Executive team are earnest and committed to the company and the employees. Fantastic Growth path Equity and Salary are great!

    Cons

    It's a startup-this means that you'll have to be flexible to be successful. Employees will help to create processes and be willing to change tracks quickly. If you want know exactly how the day will go-you'll be frustrated. No Matching 401k

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work to maintain excellent culture and a nice place to work!

    I have been working at Amplitude Analytics full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been here for a little over two years now and this is still the smartest group of people I have ever worked with. Things are almost always in flux, as with any startup, but leadership clearly has a vision of where we're trying to go. There's a huge emphasis on cross-team collaboration; sales people are helping to build marketing collateral, product managers and engineers love to jump on sales calls to lend a hand,...

    Cons

    We're still a growing company, and most things that we're doing these days are things that we're doing for the first time. For plenty of roles there's not as much hands-on guidance that you'd see with larger companies. This can be a great thing if you like defining processes, but it can be make for a bit of a learning curve if you're not used to paving your own path. Amplitude is also a fairly technical product, so if...

    Advice to Management

    A huge selling point with the company is the flexibility offered to almost every role. As the company grows it can be hard to maintain giving everyone the freedom to work from home, take the PTO they need, keep the work/life balance strong. We do this really well, let's just make sure we don't forget about it as we grow!

    Pros

    Low-ego employee-base with NO shortage of high-impact work to do. Everyone is genuinely grounded in the company morals of ownership, humility, and growth. I'm surrounded by ambitious coworkers who are both excited about getting the work done and equally ready to laugh and enjoy the ride. I feel supported and encouraged every single day. I feel so lucky to be a part of this team, and I can't wait to grow my career...

    We're moving fast! I'm so impressed by the way everyone is currently able to juggle priorities; I'm looking forward to the build-out of more employee resources to sustain the amazing culture we've built thus far.

    Pros

    If you've worked in startups, then you've heard it all before -- flowery, pie-in-the-sky promises of a fantastic company culture that sound great on paper, but inevitably disappoint. Amplitude actually walks the walk. The culture here is unreal, and management is laser-focused on keeping it intact even as Amplitude doubles in size year-over-year. Their goal is simple: find new hires that up-level the team and exemplify...

    The team is going through some growing pains
