I’m looking at software engineering roles in the Bay Area and came across Nextdoor. Seems like a socially impactful product and I like the mission a lot — anyone with personal experience working there willing to share? Would appreciate any insight 😊
- ClearDATA zjDm22Nextdoor sounds great in theory, but in practice is ceaseless notifications about missing cats, racism and SJW virtue signalling. Oh and the occasional ikea desk.
- It’s a great idea and I used to want to work there. But I’m not clear how would they make a profit (showing ads is boring)
- Facebook Teddybear1I really like the app and the concept of Nextdoor. Enough that I would have talked to them about job but they are not where I am located. However their challenge might be converting occasional users to regular (daily / weekly) users. Anyway, definitely look at the long term plans critically.
- Airbnb RandomidxxI wonder how people question the business model from Nextdoor when many successful companies such as FB are ads based. The product quality is not there yet but will get there. Too early to judge. The business model makes total sense. They are already generating a healthy amount of revenue with a team of 200 people or so. This is the first step... go Nextdoor! Be user centric and win users heart.
