    Great place to work, but you should expect 1-2 years of not-so-greatness

    Current Employee - Technical Leader in Buenos Aires (Argentina)

    I have been working at Mercadolibre full-time (more than 3 years)


    LOT of different projects related to e-commerce
    Own cloud to play with
    Freedom to choose whichever technology fits best to the problem you want to solve


    The positions offered when you start are below than what I expected, and don't expect any promotion on the first year.
    Sometimes you become much neccesary to a project and it's difficult to get out.
    Many developers in different sites not always have the same code quality

    Positive Outlook

    Anonymous Employee in Barueri (Brazil)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Mercadolibre in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications through Head Hunting. Later, 1st interview with HR regional Manager, 2nd interview with HR LatAM Diretor, 3rd interview with Business Executives: Marketing and Products Latam Director, Latam Marketing Manager, Head of Business Director; and the last interview with the Senior VP of Business Unit.

    All interviews were demanding, asking questions about my last 5 years background. Questions were about business scenarios of my past history, understanding tradeoff, resultas and decisions. HR interviews were all about background to understand interpersonal qualities. Business interviews were focused on background but driven for the future challenges from the new position.

    Interview Questions
    • Difficult - a Series o questions, may be 30-40 questions, in sequence, discussing an strategy behind consumer segmentation, trade marketing, Digital Marketing, Consumer engagement and business growth. Very challenging and interesting though.   Answer Question
    No Offer
