    Systems Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    3 parts: HR screen phone interview, phone interview with manager, in-person interview with manager, director, and team member.

    The process was very low stress because my qualifications matched exactly with what was needed. I hardly had to spin my experience in positively. I simply stated my experience and they were very enthusiastic. It was a very down to earth experience and didn't feel like a game (like most interviews). Great emotional connection with the team and were very laid back.

    The HR recruiter was very good and maintained constant contact. The whole process took about two weeks from applying to accepting.

    Overall, it was easy because I was an exact match for the role.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MediaMath (Cambridge, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through their online portal and got call from the technical recruiter 2 weeks later. He described about the company and asked why was i looking for a new job. Later he scheduled a phone screen with one of the senior QA member. Phone screen was more about the experience and basic QA methodologies, automation and basic java questions.

All the interviewers were very pleasant and explained to me nicely how things work around in MediaMath.

    Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Screening call with HR then a 30 min call with hiring manager, and then face-to-face interviews with a person that I would have manage as well as a VP from another department. The hiring manager said that we would meet to continue our call but they weren't present. I followed up twice after my face-to-face interviews but never heard back, which was very unprofessional. The time you take off of work and the time you put into the process at least deserves an automated response declining your candidacy. I was also sent to the wrong building by the HR person which made me late to the interview. If this is any indication of the company, I would not recommend them.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about my experience pertaining to the job and also my knowledge about the company and Ad Tech industry. The hiring manager asked me about some of my projects but the conversation was cut short as she had another call. It was only about 30 min by phone. Others I met with asked me about my leadership philosophy as well as what had brought me to interview for the position.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screening interview, then in-person interview. Whole process was informal and comfortable, with interviewers that were relatable, clear about what sort of skills and experience they were looking for, and respectful of my time. Even had I not received an offer, I would have left this interview with a really positive impression of MediaMath, and woudld have continued to look for roles as they became available.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The process was relatively quick. After an initial screening of my eligibility, my experience was evaluated by the lead engineer. I then spoke with several team members for about 30 minutes each. The level of technicality in the questions varied based on the member. After this, I received my offer. Everything was very smooth, and every email was promptly responded to. Overall great experience. I went into it without too many expectations and they really sold me. I felt very comfortable, and now I'm excited to work.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked some pretty in depth questions about a coding project I had previously done. I basically walked them through the whole process of my own thought process and development of the project.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I wasn't given too much time to make my decision on the offer. I was able to extend it out to a week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at MediaMath.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at a university event. I then applied online. A recruiter reached out to me, and scheduled an interview. It was a 30 minute phone interview.

    When the actual interview came about, the interviewer had zero questions for me. I'm not kidding. He was very obviously distracted, and had no questions. He asked me to describe myself and then nothing else. Nothing. I tried to keep the conversation going but there was nothing. He was very obviously not thinking I was worth his time. He hung up after 14 minutes. He asked me to describe myself, and he asked me if I'd researched the position, which I had.

    I then followed up with the recruiter who scheduled the interview in hopes that I wouldn't be disregarded because the interviewer was ill prepared. The recruiter never emailed me back, instead I got a reply from a do not reply email address saying they were considering other options.

    Overall, I have NEVER felt so disrespected after an interview process with any of the 15+ companies I have interviewed with. This was a very poor experience and if this is how serious they take finding talent, I do not anticipate them finding it.

    Interview Questions

    • They did not ask me any questions other than to 'describe myself' and 'have you researched the position.' They do not prepare for interviews and do not respect your time enough to have anything prepared.   Answer Question
