    Pros

    As a software engineer I favor companies that are big enough to have interesting scaling work, but small enough where there is still new ground to cover and one can have huge impact as an individual contributor. HotelTonight delivers on both in spades. You're not just a cog in a giant machine, you actually get the chance to see what drives the business and shape the future of the company directly through your work. The engineering culture encourages ownership and empowerment of individuals. Custom tooling and internal documentation allows teams to run their own containerized services, and develop true operational expertise in deploying production code at scale. We don't simply throw code over the wall to a devops team–it is expected for us to watch our code in production and develop good intuition for what will or won't work. At the same time, we also work very closely with product managers and are expected to be thinking of the product implications in everything we do. As an engineer, being able to cover the gamut from infrastructure up to UI and product implications is great experience that gives a broad view of the economic value we create beyond just slinging code. This type of experience paves the way for a wider range of career options than more silo'ed roles would. One thing I particularly appreciate compared to other companies is the financial and operational transparency. The CEO gives a weekly update to the whole company outlining the financial picture for the company, leadership discussions, strategic plans, as well as responding to questions from anyone in the company. It is apparent from these all-hands meetings that our growth is sustainable and not based on buying marketshare through irresponsible means that could burn us down the line. Being part of a real company with solid financials versus SV smoke and mirrors is extremely valuable to me as a software engineer who's been to a few rodeos. Last but not least, the team is fantastic to work with. Across the board the company truly values hiring good, humble people who are all about doing the best work they can. HT has quite a diverse group spread across six offices in North America and Europe, and it is a pleasure to come in every day and see what ideas people are cooking up.

    Kontras

    The downside of working at HT is that things can get a bit chaotic at times. Management is good about avoiding unrealistic deadlines or death marches, but it is the nature of a fast-growing business that things change. This offers new opportunities but could be stressful for those who prefer unchanging and clearly defined roles.

    Pros

    - The company is amazingly open: every week company hosts all hands where all the performance metrics, initiative, goals etc. are presented and afterwards there is an AMA to CEO and executives - Transparent and responsive executives - Lots of learning and skills advancement opportunity - Company encourages to think holistically and contribute to all aspect of business from user growth, hotel on-boarding to customer service and much more. - Innovative & fun product:- HT is definitely no. 1 to other traditional 1920's hotel booking apps/sites

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei HotelTonight gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    It's a pretty nice office with nice perks, such as travel credits and a full bar.

    Kontras

    This company is struggling to make a splash. The value has not increased for about 4-5 years. Engineers are treated like grunt workers that need to execute whatever the CEO believes is best. Engineers have very little autonomy (if any). The CTO loves to micromanage people and the CEO *always* believes he can do better. This shows by a high churn rate of executives and employees at all levels.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We were certainly disappointed to hear that this was your experience here at HotelTonight. As you may know, we have a culture of openness and sharing that supports employees in providing feedback to discuss their concerns directly with their manager whenever possible. When this isn’t an option, we also encourage direct contact with our People Team (either in person or by leveraging one of our many outlets for feedback.) In response to your feedback, I also wanted to share that we are continuously improving processes with the goal of driving bottoms-up innovation and working hard to solve our customers' biggest challenges (resulting in a profitable 2018 that beat our plans and accelerating revenue growth throughout the year and into 2019.) Our engineers will continue to be key partners in the product creation process and we will continue to hold team members accountable delivering innovative solutions and products.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei HotelTonight (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    HT has an incredible office (ehem, in-office full bar facing Market St.) in a great location. I've never seen anyone in management lose their cool, and meetings and discussions are almost always calm and composed. Every engineer here is ambitious and driven, and isn't content sitting around here twiddling thumbs. The brand and general business idea is easy to get behind, and consequently, we're proud to work here. Everyone seems has a deep interest in the product and In-office perks are on-par with other SF startups: Apple monitors and Macs, snacks, bi-weekly lunches. Pay is good, benefits are good.

    Kontras

    It's been hard to see one or two close friends be let go, rather than repurposed as the company grows.
