      Pros

      - Leadership: levelheaded, strong decision makers who know the space well. Having Finnish/Scandinavian roots, they actually take care of their people well, with a focus on sustainably operations & growth. Sets crystal clear vision and strategy, without micromanaging. - Smartly.io is #1: in the niche space of ad automation, and also competitive in the expansive social advertising space. - High growth: but with a focus on growing sustainably. - Co-workers: motivated, smart, nice people. No a**holes.

      Cons

      - somewhat flat structure which can be good, but also create a sense of a lagging career when there is no clear upward trajectory. The Leadership team is focusing on fixing this now.

      Pros

      So far, my experience at Smartly has been a really positive one. Onboarding has been very organized and the people are so nice and very intelligent. I feel supported and can already tell that this will be a fun, positive and challenging work environment. It is very clear to me already how much the company cares about it's employees which I feel is rare to find this days!

      Cons

      A tough interview but brilliant in that it weeds out people who are not willing to take that extra step and put in the work.

      Pros

      -Fast-moving company with room to grow and advance your career -Challenging and motivating work in a growth industry -Great company culture on a global level -Every employee concern is taken seriously and acted on -Everyone at the company helps define company vision and goals

      Cons

      -Typical growing pains of a startup shifting to a larger company but nothing unexpected. Things are constantly changing, communication, etc. But I feel these problems are par for the course and a negligible compared to the positives. -Sometimes it's hard to keep up with how fast the company is evolving.

      Recruitment Process at Smartly

      Pros

      This is an overview of the Smartly Recruitment process, I have not been here long enough to judge how it feels like working here. - Great communication, full transparency; - Amazing best-in-class product; - International team of A-players; Why I chose to join, other than the reasons mentioned above: - The company is in a really good place, it's growing rapidly and results are great; - It's a flat organization with tremendous opportunities for growth; - The vibe is quite amazing, you can feel the team spirit; it's result-oriented, yet very humble, everyone is extremely helpful; - You can quickly make an impact on the organization with the right attitude.

      Cons

      The commitment to full transparency results into a lot of information and communication to process on the daily basis. However, I'd rather deal with that than the opposite and a lack of transparency.
