Pros

Great autonomy, great work life balance, learn ALOT about all sorts of different things due to the fantastic transparency of the company. Awesome office... no drudgery to a boring cubicle here!

Cons

Being a small company, not much room to grow in terms of your traditional company hierarchy... but this can also be a Pro.... since as an individual you have room to run your own show and work with a small team of really smart and empowered people.

    Pros

    The organization is very flat, that being said career opportunities are everywhere. While there is not a lot of structured development, individuals are free to create their own career path and chase what interests them. This is most commonly seen in the "If its broken, than fix it" mentality that runs through the organization.

    The company also has a core set of beliefs in supporting merchants and the community in a very real way. This comes to life in the product roadmaps, and the Friday ritual to spend 30 minutes cleaning the streets in our neighborhood.

    The people here are great – professionals who know how to get it done.

    Cons

    The company is moving fast, and with any fast-paced environment there is not a lot of structure, individuals who like a comfortable and predictable day may struggle to find the 'grounding' they need to be successful.

    There are some growing pains with resource allocation, and clear direction. These are usually addressed, but it can take a minute for them to surface and be prioritized.
