Data Scientist Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Rovi in March 2014.
I met some representatives of Rovi Analytics, a former start-up recently acquired by Rovi, at a workshop.
The interview process consisted in giving a presentation, followed by about 5 individual interviews. They explained what they were working on, the problems they are trying to solve, how Rovi works, etc.
They inquired about my previous experience with data analytics and asked me several question such as the ones here below. On average all interviewers were kind with me.
My initial reception was very poor: I was left outside in front of the intercom for 10 mins, trying to reach the contact at the phone numbers they gave me. Between one interview and the next I was left alone in the room, but they were kind enough to offer me something to drink.
After one week or so that I followed up with an email, but never heard anything from them anymore. In the mean time I was in the process of starting another job, so after some weeks I decided to move on.
The problems they are trying to solve are very interesting, the company is expanding very quickly. Many employees had only a few months experience at Rovi Analytics. The fact that they did not reach back even with a sstandard email is pretty rude and disappointing
