We Are Groundswell
Headquartered in sunny El Segundo in Los Angeles.
I work alongside smart, talented and hard-working people who I genuinely enjoy brainstorming, problem-solving, collaborating and creating with. The constant challenge and daily learning fires me up!
We foster a high-trust culture.
On our team things like integrity, trust, and respect are table stakes.
We embrace diversity.
We value diversity not for its own sake but because we staunchly believe different experiences and perspectives will make us better. Oh, and we think diverse workplaces are simply more fun and interesting.
We value high competence, but low ego.
Your pedigree isn’t what will earn you respect around here; your competence and humility will. It doesn’t matter to us whether you’re coming from the School of Hard Knocks or an Ivy League.
We believe we can make the world a better place.
If you don’t have an unabashed belief that you can make the world a better place, then you should go work at Amazon and help ship cat food faster.
We work smarter and harder.
Our mission is too important and vision too bold to simply show up and mail it in. You must have an all-hands-on-deck attitude and sports team mentality.
We celebrate. We have fun.
We want teammates that we are eager to see on Monday morning because they make our lives richer.
We seek to never stop learning
We seek and give feedback, not for agreement or consensus, but to get to the best idea. Groupthink leads to Groupsink.

Interviewing at Groundswell
Our interviews are conversational with the goal of getting to you know you (perspective, style and motivations) and your experience (skills, talent and lessons learned) so that we can ensure a two-way fit.
Every role on the team is critical and every person helps shape our culture and the future of our company so we’re very thorough and thoughtful throughout the interview process. We want you to know what to expect and hope you have fun as you get to know our team.
Apply online: We’ll review your application and you’ll usually hear back from us if it is a fit within 3 days.
Phone Interview: The first step is always a phone conversation, which helps our recruiting team bring your resume to life. Again, we want to get to know you!
Zoom Interview: The second step is a video interview with our hiring manager. This is an opportunity to dive into the role and specific technical expertise it requires. It’s also a great opportunity to ensure a fit with management and leadership style.
Technical Assessment: For most roles, we hold a 60-minute working session or short take-home assignment/engineering test that is discussed live.
On-Site Interview: Our final interview is always on-site so candidates can get a taste of life at Groundswell and meet the rest of our team.
Everything sounds great but not seeing what’s right for you? Know someone who would be great for Groundswell? Let us know! We’ll give you $1,000 for your referral.
