      Good employer culture, great opportunities to work with data, good tech stack


      Data driven product development is not a statement that leadership and upper management adhere to

        The people are young, smart and fun. Socialising is fantastic, especially if you're particularly in-tune with the Berlin music scene. The product is also very high profile and well-loved in some circles.


        The company suffers from transitionary challenges - most specifically, the conflict between the original startup family 'inner circle', and more recent recruits; those who were on-board in the early days have carte blanche, whereas those hired since are treated with suspicion. This doesn't benefit anyone. Upper management may feel the need to dabble in the work of those lower down the 'food-chain', yet doesn't make time to actually get to know the position that workers are actually in. Management may also overestimate their ability to attract talent, and as such does not care as much as it should about nurturing and retaining talent. There may also be a unhealthy attitude to working hours - not length, ironically, but the *later* the better. Arriving in the morning and hoping to be home for dinner is not a good idea. Much better to arrive after lunch and leave before midnight - this will win you favour with upper management...

      If employers are shopping cheap, should we just apply for roles that we're less qualified for?

      I had an interview late August, sent a thank you the same day, followed up when they said they would get back to me, and then again a week later and I got no response. I gave up and they just sent me an email saying the position was on hold and they hoped to have an update at the end of the week. I'd still like to see what they might offer me so what could I say in response?



      Have you ever been asked by a recruiter to sign an nda before they can speak to you about a job they're recruiting you for? Mind you they reached out to me
