I worked at LateRooms.com as a contractor (Less than a year)
Cutting edge technology; GraphQL, React, Redux Observables to solve some really interesting and challenging problems. Great talent and fantastic place to learn and up-skill. Very talented team who are always happy to pair program.
The environment is very social and friendly. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a challenge alongside a great team.
Getting code approved occasionally took a while and it could sometimes take a day or so to get things merged.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LateRooms.com (Manchester, England (UK)) in January 2013.
Pair programming exercise with a 30 min time limit, 1 to 1 interview to discuss your development experience focusing primarily on how much unpaid out of hours self training you did per week and how much Test Driven Development experience you had. There was also an emphasis on peer pressure to attend regular weekend developer TDD conferences (in London) again unpaid and expected to be self funded as far as entrance tickets, hotels etc.
