I have been working at Smile.io full-time (Less than a year)
Everything at Smile.io is truly a team effort! There is a high degree of collaboration, lots of constructive feedback, and everyone here operates in the best interest of Smile.io and our customers. It's a breath of fresh air to know that even at the executive level, this company looks out for its employees and interested in the growth and development of not only each team, and each employee here. The work is challenging and there's not a single person here that doesn't work hard.
Not really con, but process and strategy are both still maturing. Getting things more solid will be imperative for scaling.
Advice to Management
Keep building this great culture!
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Smile.io (Kitchener, ON) in January-2018.
The interview process is 3-4 rounds depending on who you meet and when. First contacted via email, and spent an hour with HR, super causal and felt very comfortable. Second round is a technical interview, where you create a store and use the app. Three and four are cultural based interviews with expectations and meeting a bunch of people on the team. Everything is pretty casual, but the technical interview takes a lot of time to really get where they want you to be with support knowledge and diving into the blogs and resources. It's an amazing team that cares a lot about fit and experience, so ask a lot of questions, get to know everyone who's interviewing you, and be aware that they don't talk to each other (so ask the same questions in each interview about culture and different team aspects)
