    The CEO does a Q&A every week where he answers the most voted questions, no topics off limits. Incredible benefits and perks. Fantastic environment with extremely intelligent coworkers.

    Pros

    Culture is amazing. Management really cares about you and they provide amazing benefits as well. There is a lot of opportunities to learn and grow.

    Recruiting team is quite large and sometimes you end up trying to "recruit" the same candidates. But there are processes in place to avoid that.
