    Director Level Role Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at App Annie.

    Interview Details

    -Really positive external recruiter contact then it all went downhill.
    -Internal recruiting head seem nice enough but really didn't have the level I expect to head up recruiting. It was a completely different experience than the external recruiter. It wasn't a great candidate experience.
    -One of the senior leaders seemed biased, I don't think he would command the respect of others.
    -Hiring manager seemed overwhelmed and he played a role in getting solutions to his current issues.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at App Annie.

    Interview Details

    There were many interviews, recruiter handled them well lots of scheduling. This all ended in a "homework" case study, which took a fair amount of time. I guess it makes sense to have it, though it all felt like a bit "much" and they clearly were looking for very specific things. Some of the interviewers were smart and inspiring, others were just ok.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at App Annie.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter very unprofessional...did not follow up as he said he would (either way, this is a common courtesy people generally expect). Additionally, she/he was unpleasant and a tad bit pompous. I don't know anything about the culture over there, but have read very positive things. Check with your recruiters and see if they have any clue how to manage expectations. Classic over promise and underdeliver scenario.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at App Annie.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and had a phone screen with the senior data analyst and another one with the principal data analyst. The whole process took about a month. This was one of the most negative experiences that I have ever had. They seem to hire elitist types who are arrogant and condescending. Would never consider working here.

    Sales Enablement Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at App Annie in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with two members of the internal recruiting team, global recruiting leader and a sales recruiter for an intro and basic pre-screening. They kept me informed when there was a slight delay as they were settling in the new hiring manager for this role. They were very friendly and knowledgable about this search. They made sure things lined up from my experience to compensation expectations.

    Next was a phone screen with the new hiring manager. Overall very great and professional people. You can tell how excited they are about the company and what they are doing. They all seemed very busy but that's understandable as they are in high growth mode. The coordinator was very helpful too. It seems very fast paced there. Almost too much going on at once. In the end, they moved forward with another candidate and I was pretty bummed. The recruiter kindly called me to close the loop. Pretty rare these days. It was a very positive experience compared to many other companies out there who move too quickly and treat candidates like numbers.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at App Annie in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my application online after seeing LinkedIn posting.
    Got a response within a few hours to setup a phone screen. Picked a time for my phone screen.
    Received an invitation to next round with hiring manager later the same day (mock call)--was some questions about my experience/interest in the product and then a mock call-->feedback--> another try at the call to rectify some of the issues.
    Received an invitation later that day to come into the office for an in-person the next two days.
    Was provided detailed instructions & they were very understanding of my schedule (I was working full-time) so I went in that evening, was greeted & met with the recruiter. Introduced to the hiring manager (head of sales) & then met with the person I would be meeting with.
    Lots of questions about why I wanted the job and why I was interested in the company in particular. Very thoughtful/thought-provoking interview (really made me think about why I would be a good fit and if the role itself was interesting).
    I wasn't that thrilled about the role when I first started the interview process, but after speaking with people and learning more about the company/team/position, I knew it would be a good fit.
    Called back with a verbal offer the next day.

    Interview Questions

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at App Annie.

    Interview Details

    The interview is straightforward. Starts with a phone screen with a recruiter followed by an hour interview on the phone with the UX director. I thought both conversations went well and people seemed nice and smart. I don't like how they treat their candidates post-interview however. At the early stages they make you feel like you're the perfect candidate for the role, they act very excited and are completely responsive, but then after the interview it's not possible to get any sort of response. It's not very classy and you can tell a lot about a company by the way they treat people during an interview.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at App Annie.

    Interview Details

    I had a really positive experience with the recruiting team and the company's interview process. I was scheduled for a phone screen and on-site interview, and the company was very accommodating with my schedule. I was still at my former place of employment at the time so we were working out of normal office hours. The person I spoke to on the phone to schedule my interviews was so nice! When I came to the office, they had just moved to another floor and people were very friendly in helping me find the right place to be. I met with three different people when I came in and they were all very engaging. The interview seemed more like a conversation than an intimidating interview--they seem to be genuinely curious to see if you'd be a good fit/they'd be a good place for you. Plus, it helped that everyone I spoke with was excited about the position and how it would benefit the company.

    The culture seems hardworking yet casual and relaxed. When I came in, I was interviewed until about 7 in the evening. When I left, there were people still in the office, joking around which I took to be a good sign. The SF office is about 50 people, so it's still small so the culture is still be defined. It's definitely growing though.

    One of the most positive things I have to say about this process is that they were very transparent. Not only were they clear with the next steps with me, but they also discussed my potential growth trajectory within the company.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at App Annie in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very challenging and required extensive in-depth knowledge on the digital mobile app industry. The on-site consisted of multiple interviews with questions that covered both technical aptitude and culture fit.

    All in all, the interview process was wonderful and the recruitment team was extremely efficient. I was able to tell that App Annie is committed to building a highly skilled team with great culture.
