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.
- 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.
- 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)
