    I have been working at Feedzai full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Feedzai has a unique startup culture. Everyone is super easygoing and open. New ideas are always welcome in Feedzai. My co-workers are super smart and extremely helpful. They are always willing to help you out every time you get stuck anything. People from C' lever are easygoing and talking to them is the same as talking to anyone in Feedzai. The company is growing super fast and new hires happen all the time.

    Cons

    The only downside from Delivery team in US would be the travel. Traveling every week at the initial stage of the project is required for security reasons. With all colleagues around, it is much easier and more efficient to make the job done. Also because of the easygoing and open culture, Feedzai has made the whole travel experience less boring as we have activities every week. However, it is sometimes still a pain... to travel every week.

    I have been working at Feedzai full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Feedzai as a company is growing very quickly, something I was specifically looking for when I was job searching. Companies I've worked with in the past have each been in a different stage of the business life-cycle (startup, mature, decline) and to experience growth first-hand is exhilarating. It almost feels that there are new members of the global team joining each week and are welcomed to the team immediately... with open arms. You won't feel like just another cog in a giant wheel at Feedzai, trust me on that. A huge pro is there are new challenges every day, both on the project-side and related to Feedzai itself, making each day different from the last. Everyone is given a great deal of autonomy with which to work, leaving it to the individual to pave their own way to get the work done.

    Cons

    Only being able to speak from the delivery side within the US, the downside is the travel. The delivery team is working to establish processes that allow for more remote client work after an initial on-site project kick-off period, so it is known that excessive travel is a burden and that Feedzai wants to do something about it. However, Feedzai does make being away from home as pleasant as possible through group... activities, dinners and comfortable living quarters.

    Advice to Management

    While growth is exciting, recognize that many new faces will be joining who come from all different industries and might not immediately be aware of the specifics of fraud and the payment industry. We're all guilty of it, but sometimes the acronyms and industry-specific jargon flow very freely without realizing that not everyone may be as up-to-speed as the next. Also, focus on unique ways to share knowledge... across projects and other business initiatives. Many unique learnings are picked up every day and while all are not transferable, learning the same thing twice in two different projects is expensive. There isn't a silver bullet to solve this by any stretch, but when teams are so spread out, seamless knowledge-sharing creates a sense of community among many other positives.

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

    Pros

    Many startups have unproven business models and platforms. Feedzai has large clients that give its business stability and the platform is deployed in production environments. The team is international and is a data science powerhouse. The hiring process is very very rigorous so this means your colleagues are top-notch people. People here are very down-to-earth though, the culture doesn't tolerate brilliant jerks.

    Cons

    For an emerging startup, Feedzai has some big company dynamics. There are 6 offices globally and clients nearly on every continent. The sun is always up somewhere within Feedzai's world. So if you like an environment that is more international and a business that is globally connected, then Feedzai is a good fit. If you don't like the startup vibe and disruptive bent, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the high standards for recruiting and hiring.

    Pros

    Feedzai has a great culture and the work is very interesting. If you want to work on the cutting edge of tech this is the place to be. They are a Portuguese company but the US team is quickly coming together and the leadership is strong and focused. The delivery team travels a lot but they make sure it's comfortable.

    Cons

    On boarding process could be better, working with clients can be slow.

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

    Pros

    You will be surrounded by motivated people, ready to help and full of knowledge to share. It is a great place if you want to learn new techniques, improve your coding skills and keep up with the latest technologies. The implemented solutions must fit high standards, as we are dealing with aggressive performance requirements. If you are looking for a challenge, then Feedzai is certainly an option to consider.

    Cons

    Things are changing really quickly, so it is hard to get a long-term detailed plan. Overall documentation of the product could also be improved, although the constant help of other team members help mitigating a bit this flaw.
