    Pros

    People are really nice, open to questions, ready to help. Tech stack is not the best, but a huge effort is being put to improve it. People really open to new ideas

    Cons

    Codebase is a mess, but getting better :D

    Pros

    very professional, talented team, good values

    Cons

    The company is growing and sometimes it feels like a mess. many tiers are added, it was a flat company. many managers, many PMs, many staff engineers, many meetings, very hectic, very stressful. The benefits are not that great, the pay is OK.

    Pros

    Really good hiring process. We feel like a conversation on each step. I felt really comfortable with the whole process. The teams really want to grow the systems and improve what we have today. Every feedback is heard and the feedback culture is really strong.

    Cons

    Slow interactions due to security processes

    A very nice place to grow

    Pros

    A company where the quality of the product matters. This means that we strive to write the best possible code. Always with cheerfull code-reviews, pointing out where we can do better. Test cases are encouraged. Also, this is a place where we bring new ideas and they might get accepted easily if they are proven good. Besides the coding part, the fact that we can ask for the hardware that we like is something precious (I got the mouse that I liked, a big screen, the most recent MacBook Pro, a nice char, a sit-stand desk, etc). The company is also very supportive in many different ways. The HR is always helpful, more than once I had some personal requests that helped me out very quickly. The lunch is always fresh and very nice. Our product owner is very nice and always helps the team to keep up with the goals.

    Cons

    The business is very broad. So it takes some time to get "productive". There is a lot of rules, partners, providers, payment stuff involved, that we must know to start coding. Personally, (and it is an unusual opinion) I don't like the office location, right in the middle of the city. I would prefer if it was in a less crowded place. We don't have a very strict agile environment. But I feel like, it is working fine.

    I'm really enjoying work at Mollie

    Pros

    One of the best things I like about Mollie is that only very few people are leaving. I think this says a lot about the work and culture. Over the past years I've seen Mollie grow from less than 20 employees to over 120, but it definitely doesn't feel out of control or too fast. In the engineering department you notice that the company is more a tech company than a financial company. We are encouraged to work with cool and new technologies. Developer happiness is a valid argument to start a project. There are lots of interesting technical challenges, like keeping all processes working with the growing business or building new products.

    Cons

    The growth of Mollie gives a lot of opportunities to all employees, but I feel like you really have to push yourself forward to make steps in your career. Still junior developers becoming team lead because they want it, but very skilled employees staying where they are because they aren't taking any initiative to take a next step. You also have to create your own next position, instead of someone higher in the organisation thinking about how to structure the departments and then trying to find the best person for the position.
