    Pros

    I've been here for almost a year and I've enjoyed every second of it! This is by far the best company I've worked for so far. Transparency, ownership, and support are deeply rooted in the culture and behavior of people. Both leadership and peers are quick to recognize great work and share feedback proactively. The general atmosphere is very laid back but highly productive. Stuff gets done with no tensions or stress, it's amazing! Home office and remote work are common practice, I do it every few weeks, not just to go home, but also to travel and work from abroad. Working hours are fully flexible (for reals). I've always been taken aback by the humbleness and respectful attitude of the founders that lead by example in promoting the values of the company, empowering teams to make decisions that have an impact on the entire company. There's genuine interest in employees and their wellbeing. The product has an inspiring purpose and ambitious goals for the future, and everyone gets so enthusiastic about their work that it's contagious. So many smart and passionate people with such diverse interests from all over the world. There's enough room to experiment, innovate, try out new things, even fail and learn from your experience (embrace failure is one of the company values). I am literally amazed at how a company environment can feel so good and the level of trust people have in each other here. I don't think I'd be able to believe it if I wasn't a part of it.

    Kontras

    It's a young company so there's a lot of work around setting up the foundations and shaping the structure and processes, but that's exactly why this is such an exciting time to be here.

    Rat an das Management

    Keep the focus on purposeful work. Dare to dream big and inspire people to innovate and be bold in what they do. Keep empowering the teams as you do now. You're already doing an amazing job, just keep at it.

    Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Blinkist (Berlin).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I had an amazing overall experience interviewing for a Talent Acquisition role in Berlin. The entire process took less than three weeks, with two online interviews and a visit to Blinkist offices in Berlin which I really enjoyed.
    The interview process was quite comprehensive since the very start. The first conversation was with their TA Manager who shared some very helpfull information about the position, the company and explained to me the following steps of the process.
    The whole experience was just seamless and really thought through. Communicating with the team there has been extremely smooth and easy. I interviewed with the TA Manager, HR Manager and business leaders. The leadership team seemed very down-to-earth, transparent and extremely ambitious in their plans and ideas for the future of the company. I also had a chance to meet the rest of the team which I really appreciate. Everyone there was more than happy to answer any questions that I had, which helped me understand the way they think and gave me a really good sense of the type of work I'd be doing, as well as who I would be working with.
    I think there’s an aspect to the company culture that remains invisible on the outside, and that’s the adventurous spirit and the almost family atmosphere that you get when you enter the offices. That’s what really had me sold from the very beginning. Everyone I spoke to has been super friendly, extremely engaged with the business and passionate about their work, but also about their hobbies and recreation. The company policies seem to be very flexible and allow for everyone to adjust their work to their personal life.
    All in all, I felt really positive about the company and the entire team. Seems like an incredible place to work at.
