Senior IOS Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at OpenX in July 2014.
Interview Details – It was very interesting. Everyone was nice, but blunt. We talked about my qualifications, my experience, etc. I think I was slightly under-qualified so they were rightly iffy about hiring me. Also if you're not good at "whiteboard" interviewing, then this company is DEFINITELY not for you!! Must be on your P's and Q's (not that I wasn't).
Interview Question – Why would you consider yourself a Sr. Level Developer? Answer Question
Data Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at OpenX in April 2014.
Interview Details – Process: Initial phone call, on-site panel interview, technical test, and offer.
It was a pleasant interview experience. The interviewers asked great questions that I felt really relates to the position and the culture as a whole. Everyone I met was highly intelligent and easy to talk to.
I wasn't given enough time to think about the offer. The acceptance time window was short.
Interview Question – Excel test and SQL discussion. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I felt rushed to make a decision.
Data Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)

Business Development Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at OpenX in October 2013.
Interview Details – Process took about 3 weeks. Initial phone screen with a recruiter, basically walking you through your resume. About a week after, phone interview with the hiring manager (VP of Biz Dev). This was more elaborate, questions like: what do you know about OpenX? What about RTB? Why leave your current company?
After successfully passing the phone interview, I was brought on-site to speak with the hiring manager and 4 other managers individually for about 45 minutes each. Each manager tested your knowledge of the industry, platform, company overview, and passion for the position. Also asked about your previous experience in closing deals, build a pipeline, etc. I received a call from the recruiter two days later saying that they decided I was not a strong enough candidate. Quite unprofessional, as I was not even given a reason as to why.
Interview Question – Explain how RTB works
Explain the different OpenX platforms
What type of deals have you closed before Answer Question
Hadoop Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at OpenX in November 2013.
Interview Details – Initial call was with HR to get to know if I am a good fit. Next round was a coding task for 1 hr.
I cleared that round and next was a technical interview. It is to getting to know the proficiency in Java and Hadoop.
Interviewer thought that I was talking to some other guy during the interview, but honestly I was not.
Interview Question – Decorator pattern View Answers (4)
Senior Developer Interview (Negative Experience)
Interviewed at OpenX
Interview Details – Phone interview. Went through the first HR rep and then a technical call. Didn't know it was going to be technical, I was sick at the time. I didn't want to reschedule because I figured it would be just a 30 minute getting to know you, but it was full tech. I was coughing the whole time and had a fever and did pretty poorly. They did not respond which I thought was extremely uncourteous.
Interview Question – It was some traditional white board (online) questions. How to execute code. View Answer

Site Reliability Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at OpenX in May 2010.
Interview Details – A phone interview, followed by an onsite which includes 3-5 one-on-one interviews and a practical test. There are technical and soft skills interviews. If you don't pass the initial interview you will know right then whether you will proceed to the next steps.
I found out about it on the web and worked directly with the ops manager and team to get the position. Later OpenX got an internal recruiter and switched to jobvite. Regrettably neither were very effective so the process has gotten bogged down.
Interview Question – it was a long time ago and I don't remember those details Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Ask for what you want on day one because you may never get it later. This part of things has been taken over by the mediocre recruiter.
Software Engineer - Test Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at OpenX in October 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online and received an email for a phone screen. The phone screen is not with HR, it is with the person you would potentially be working with. Phone screen was about 20 minutes about what was on my resume. A few days later, I was contacted with an on site interview that lasted about 3 hours and 30 minutes. I was interviewed by 5 people with each at about ~45 minutes. They were all very nice and welcoming. I was told that I would receive a response in 1-2 and that was true. The overall process was very easy, however I lacked experience that they sought.
