    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer 

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

    Pros

    Like most companies, OfferUp has some huge goals with the right leadership to do it. The CTO is very confident in his staff with an infectious drive and ambition. Management is great and trusting of their subordinates. People are ready to help if prompted.

    Cons

    On-boarding is a little rough, but tech is in transitionary period and should smoothen out with time.

    Pros

    A completely new engineering workspace with 12-15 personnel has been conjured from grounds-up in less than 3 months.

On the top of that, we have been entrusted with developing novel micro services that have the game-changing potential for the entire company.

    Cons

    Attrition in Bellevue office. Rudimentary office perks in the new Miami office.
