    This is hands-down my favorite place I've ever worked, and I've worked for some cool companies. - Awesome team, co-workers, & boss - Challenging work - My voice is heard. I feel like I have a purpose and can make a difference - Rewarding - My hard work is noticed - Awesome benefits - Great work / life balance


    We're a growing company, so the teams can feel a bit lean. I think we just need to continue to hire some rock stars and expand our team to help ease workload.

    Advice to Management

    Continue rewarding hard work and keep up the great work.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at LiveCareer (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.


    I applied for the job through the recruiter on linkedin. The recruiter matched my profile and once found that mine was a good fit she called me to check other requirements for the role. I received a mail for the phone call with the hiring manager and it was very interesting to know more about the role and he also asking a couple of sql questions. I had another phone interview with the Engineer from the team who tested my skillset for identifying kpis in a web mining environment and other marketing questions. I received a mail for the onsite and it was with 5 different people from different team for whom I will have to work with if I join. The interview was very challenging. They asked various problems from data science, stats, sql, marketing analytics, google analytics, R and puzzles here and there. I also was called in for another onsite to meet few other team mates and the people/interviewers were very polite and approachable. That's one thing I have seen lacking in many interview processes. I think that's what made me perform better as I felt comfortable in the interview environment which is an important contributor to anyone's performance in a job interview. The recruiters were very helpful and prompt of updating me on the next steps.
