    I worked at Scrapinghub full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You are responsible for results and nobody cares about hours worked. Remote work. A lot of opportunities to make an impact inside the company and be a leader. Opportunity to develop your skills and learn. Some movements on building culture and improving transparency.

    Cons

    Culture and values feel like a lipstick service sometimes - there are internal processes, actions and attitudes which in my view openly contradict company values. Hiring - I got an offer and was rejected after due to a business review and between the offer and rejections communications were slow and not clear. Termination - I had a meeting where I was told that my contract ends without a prolongation. The reason I got is the change in business priorities, which wasn't clear for me. In seconds after the meeting, I was blocked of everything - email, Slack etc., so I ended up writing goodbye emails to my friends from my personal email. Openly discussing company problems doesn't seem encouraged and I had heard "it's done as in usual business" too often.

    I have been working at Scrapinghub full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A multicultural company, with understanding of all cultures and work ethics. A company that is always innovating. A company that is prepared to grab change and embrace it. Making the best version of me in a work environment that fits around my life.

    Cons

    If I had to say a con it would be the time it took for me to understand that remote working is really the best way to work. No more hours sitting in traffic, and arriving stressed before the day has begun. Once I realised I was trusted to work on my own timeframe and told that 5 hours of productive work is better than 8 hours of pretending to work, things really took off .

    Pros

    Remote working, No micro-management, great trust amongst colleagues, everyone is treated very fairly

    Cons

    Remote working can at times be isolating however employees are urged to connect with each other to combat this. Occasional miscommunication between teams but this is the case in every company I have ever worked for

    Thanks for taking the time to give us this feedback. I know from time to time we all have to work additional hours to meet deadlines and I'm glad you can talk to your manager about this.

    I worked at Scrapinghub full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Remote with nice people all over the world.

    Cons

    - No transparency in the decision making - Senior management doesn't take responsibility for what they do - No trust between CEO, his favourites and other company - No critics allowed. Especially no critics for CEO and his favourites. - Awful engineering quality and culture. However management doesn't want to improve anything - Die hard to get salary rise regardless of efficiency and results.

    Thanks for your comments. For sure, one of the great things about Scrapinghub is that we are a remote company and our people are based in many corners of the world. My philosophy is that you don’t need to compromise on your career in order to live where you choose. As a former Scrapinghubber, you may know that Scrapinghub has grown to an organisation of 127 people this month. We’ve put an experienced senior leadership team in place since 2017, and some of this happened during your time here. There were many changes during that period, and I am sorry that things didn’t work out for you. I’d like to update you on how we’re addressing some of the points you raised. We have a yearly compensation review, which is tied to performance. We’re working on benchmarking to ensure it’s always fair and rewards those that deserve it. In the first half of this year we’ve had several initiatives to improve engineering practises. These include a project to further standardise and promote our development best practises, we promoted and hired more tech leads, more guaranteed time on open source and mentors to help developers get started, a company-wide training program, etc. We openly discuss our top problems, including together at our last all-company get together. They all have owners and regular updates, but we’re working as a team to solve them and make Scrapinghub a great place to work! Shane Evans, CEO
