How is Nextdoor?

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 😊

    Nextdoor sounds great in theory, but in practice is ceaseless notifications about missing cats, racism and SJW virtue signalling. Oh and the occasional ikea desk.

  • Definitely, go. I lost my cat again and Nextdoor is my last hope. Work hard as Mr Snuggles and I need you very badly!

    No idea what their model or vision is. Hope the new CEO (who's really good) can figure it out.

    I 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.

  • 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)

      Boring but very profitable if done right

      We’re doubling revenue every year. We have Ads, a subscription Real Estate product for realtors, and more diversified business units in the pipeline. There is a lot we’ll do with small, local businesses as well.
