I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Convertro (Santa Monica, CA) in October 2013.
My background is a strange mix: mechanical engineering, signal processing, and data analysis and software.
I was contacted by a recruiter who pointed me to the job listing on Convertro's website. We had a few back and forth phone calls and then it was decided I should have a video chat with several people from Convertro. When the time came no one was there in the chat room! I sent a text to the recruiter who then called Convertro and had to remind them of this video chat session.
There was a single person on the other side of the video chat and it sort of looked like was talking to me from a utility closet. Right away he jump into asking me curiously-detailed questions about basic image analysis and signal processing.
Next he described a scenario where one might wish to detect some type of spike event on a timeline. The was obviously related to Convertro's focus area of cross-device attribution modeling. I asked for clarification on this question. I indicated that, while I had never before worked on this specific topic, I was somewhat familiar with the general concepts. His response to me was very vague.
During the next few minutes of discussion I could clearly observe my interviewer looking offscreen and listening to what someone else was saying. I could not see that other person, and from that moment onward I felt awkward and began to feel more anxious.
The interview ended and overall I felt I performed rather poorly. I never heard back from anyone at Convertro. But the recruiter did call me a month later, but it turns out my resume had simply gotten caught again in his screen. This final conversation was very short.
