So what does it mean to be an Ooyalan?

Ask what if?

Ooyala was born of innovators and we all share that birthright. Ooyalans invent, improve, and stay at the front edge of the possible.

Get after it.

It’s the original virtue. Innovation without hustle is a gadget in the basement. 
We simply out-pace the competition.
It's the customers.
How customers feel about our products and our people is the one true 
measure of performance. We are passionate about their success.

Speak up.

We respect diversity of thought and behavior. We encourage each other to 
embrace personal differences and new ideas.

Listen up.

We make sure we all know the full context for our daily decisions. Teammates 
who have a shared vision are nimbler and do more great things together.

    Founders and CEO created an amazing culture. Very open, very honest and a fun place to work. Probably the first company I worked for, where I felt like I needed to thank them (as opposed to the other way around). No jerks. I worked with a wide variety of people and departments and there were no real jerks that I encountered. And there were tons of fun, easy going people who were enjoyable to be around. Nice benefits, catered lunch and dinner, free annual cal-train passes, etc. Interesting technology.


    They moved too far south!

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ooyala (Dallas, TX) in May 2015.


    First, we are grouped on class room and gave six algorithm questions. They takes one week to review and then on site interview. I think they are very stress on the ability of creativity.
