    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Rubicon Project in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    After the initial phone screen, onsite interviews were scheduled in advance(about 1 week). Clear directions to offices provided with full disclosure of interviewer schedule. Opened with nice tour of facilities and completed interviews with mix of both Business and Technical team members. One interview involved a Skype call and we encountered minor connection issues. Snacks and drinks generously provided throughout. Interview completed ahead of schedule. Overall, a great experience, well-organized in a vibrant facility.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Rubicon Project in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    First round was a telephonic screening, followed by a Skype call. After clearing those rounds, selected candidates are invited to the "internship" day, where the candidates are introduced to the company, office space, and team introductions by various managers. After that, the team interviews begin (by the team that was initially interested in you). Each interview lasts for 20 minutes. You also get to interview with one extra team that you are interested in.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the question were related to previous experience and knowledge. The technical questions were moderately easy to solve due to the 20-minute interview schedule.   Answer Question

    Product Marketing Role Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Rubicon Project.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview w/ hiring manager, then in-person interviews with core team members. Phone interview was very straightforward - probing on skills, background/experience after an initial run down of team and role from the hiring manager. In-person interviews with head of product, and 2 other team members that would interact with the position. All personnel were extremely professional and very impressive...very nice, down to earth/no ego issues, super smart and engaging. Took time to explain technical aspects of the role (important for those coming in without Ad Tech experience), very open to people of diverse backgrounds. Majority of interviews felt like really engaging conversations between interesting people talking about interesting stuff vs. traditional interviews...except for a few straight-out-of-bschool case type questions to 'see how you think' from one [more junior] interviewer (i.e. what is your favorite ad, how would you recommend a tv strategy for Rubicon and how would you go about evaluating the market opportunity of a teleportation device). Company HQ was also impressive - values/mission very apparent throughout, not just posted but clear that the org makes an effort to live/reinforce the value every day. Also as an aside, best driving directions/building & parkig info packet I have ever seen, which showcases company's attention to detail and customer orientation. Overall great experience, great company!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Rubicon Project.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very well organized and clear. Both of the receptionists were very nice and welcoming. I met with three different people in the departments that the positions I was applying for are in. All of them were very nice and enthusiastic about the company. The interviews felt more like a conversation than an interrogation. They asked me plenty of questions, but also gave me the opportunity to ask them plenty of questions.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Rubicon Project in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process had three steps: phone and skype calls, homework, and an on-site interview. The homework was given after a skype call and it involved writing a piece of code for a problem in a language of your choice. The on-site interview took place in Playa Vista, CA. It started at 10:30am and finished at about 2:30pm. (I was given an option to schedule it such that it fits the first or second half of the day.) I spoke with five people for about 45 minutes with each. A typical interview session involved technical questions, coding problems, and a discussion about my experience and the role. Had a nice lunch. At the beginning and the end of the interview I was given a tour of the building where the company is located. The entire interview process was efficient, well-organized and enjoyable.
