    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at MediaMath.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a MediaMatch recruiter via LinkedIn and we quickly scheduled a phone interview with a team lead. The phone interview was pretty normal, although maybe slightly lighter on heavy technology compared to other technology companies.

    I had an in-person interview soon after and generally enjoyed myself and had great conversations with the interviewers. I met with 4 different interviewers and the internal recruiter and the interview took roughly 3 hours.

    Everyone was very polite and made sure I was comfortable and well hydrated. Thanks!

    However, I then heard nothing from the company afterwards. Not a yes, or a no. No feedback, no "thanks, but no thanks". Not even after I emailed the company to ask for an update.

    I understand that some people don't want to deal with delivering bad news and find it uncomfortable, but come'on...you must be rejecting more people than you extend offers to, so you should have had plenty of practice with it. I personally find it extremely rude and inappropriate not to have the decency of letting people who've spent hours talking to you know about your hiring decision. Reputations matter.

    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at MediaMath in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was asked to come in and meet with a panel, take skills test, go to another location to meet with more people then asked for references. Specifically requested feedback by a certain date as I had another opp on the table but wanted MM....since references were requested, I released the tabled opp and waited for MM. Follow up email I sent revealed they went in another direction (WHA...?) asked to come back in for diff role; 2 follow up emails have revealed no feedback on that meeting. MM is a good place to work but several candidates are listing that they too are practically given the job then never hear back. Uncool to waste the valuable time of ppl that are obviously looking for a job. Clean up your act with that messiness.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MediaMath in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter (Annmarie Riccio) was very efficient and communicated extremely well. I couldn't ask for more. She would follow up minutes after an interview ended to check in, and this was a major help. The interviews themselves were challenging but a good match for my abilities. I had interviewed at Google, Palantir, Dropbox, and Evernote, but I got rejected from them largely because of weak system design knowledge. The MediaMath interview was about as difficult as my Twitter interview, but the opportunity with MM was to join a recently acquired team of Akamai veterans to build a new Data Products team from scratch. It was an incredible opportunity to learn from the best and take significant ownership early on, and combined with how positive everyone I met was about working there, I accepted the offer.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MediaMath in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews, since I met my would-be boss outside of the workplace, I didn't have to go through the screening phase.

    Each interview lasted about an hour and half to two hours, where I met numerous people. The questions were thoughtful, no sugar coating the responsibilities, and everyone was honest. I really like in a team. Everyone I met with was really respectful and smart as well.

    Account Planner Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview Details

    I found the internship through my college. I wasn't very interested in the industry but I decided to give it a try anyway since it seemed like a fun company. (It is.)

    They told me to come in for an interview at their New York HQ office. (I don't remember the turnaround time, sorry!) I was only told only one person would interview me so, to my surprise, the interview in total lasted at least a couple of hours with quite a few interviewers: first the top account director, then the account manager that I would be working with if they took me in, some members of her team, and another account manager. If I recall correctly, 4-5 people interviewed me, either alone or in teams of two.

    The interview wasn't too difficult. The only "intimidating" part was the length of the interview; I never had to sit through such a long interview and talk for so long! They just went through my resume and asked the standard "why do you want to work here" kind of questions. Because I had no experience in this industry, they took a generous amount of time answering my questions and explaining to me how the industry worked, which I appreciated. I think they were predisposed to accept me because they liked me on paper and they really needed an intern. And I also think that they mainly wanted to see how much I wanted the position and how well I would get along with the team that I would be assigned to (which is why they brought so many team members in to interview me). As far as I know, from what I saw later when I worked at the company, having the entire team meet the potential employee is pretty standard for interviews of this position (both full time and intern). By the end of the interview, they already implicitly told me that I had the position.

    I think that the main thing they look for is if you fit with their work philosophy. I've heard my manager say this before. You may be smart and qualified but that's not enough; they want to be able to see themselves working well with you. MediaMath has a very team-oriented atmosphere. Do your research on their company values and philosophy, see what they hold important!! Also, it's not very important that you know about the industry, because few people straight out of college like me would know about online advertising in such detail. But they want fast learners and quick, creative thinkers!
