I have been working at Ampush full-time (More than a year)
Super transparent management, great learning culture and the people are best part of the experience. Real values and solid perks (e.g., fully paid healthcare). Very happy customers means lots of growth!
Things move fast, definitely work hard/play hard culture; things change rapidly so you will never be comfortable.
Advice to Management
Provide even more transparency, get more organized around career development and keep focusing on people first.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ampush (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.
After submitting my resume/cover letter, I received an email asking me to take the same quiz a bunch of the other reviewers mentioned. The actual math in the quiz is pretty easy, you just have to read the questions carefully in order to figure out exactly what they're asking. A few days later I was contacted to set up a phone interview. The first 30 minutes were spent on standard behavioral stuff, while the last 15 were spent on a few questions very similar to the ones from the online quiz. I found this brief phone quiz more difficult than the online one because I had to write the numbers down and try to remember all of the element of the questions and felt awkward asking the interviewer to repeat parts of the question (she was very nice and helpful, though). The next round was an on-site interview where I met with two senior employees. The first person asked mostly behavioral stuff with a short case at the end. The second person went through two longer cases and a short brain teaser. The cases were essentially more detailed versions of the questions from the previous rounds.
