    I have been working at OpenX full-time (more than a year)


    The best part of working at OpenX is that you are surrounded by people who have great intuitive towards solving problems. I am constantly learning from my peers here which makes my experience at OpenX one that I will never forget or take lightly. Engineers here are also always so willing to lend a helping hand or give insight into their experiences and work. It's a great learning atmosphere. More than that, I feel like there's always potential and room to grow. Personally, my manager has made me feel like I can work to my fullest potential and be heard. At the same time, we cultivate a culture that encourages humility and respect.

    Aside from daily work life, we get free lunch 3 days a week and our benefits just got way better especially for a not so large company like OpenX.


    There always seem to be a lot of politics involved in highly visible projects. This concerns me as I have not seen a project so far that has not garnered intense criticism from multiple parties in the company and the various departments involved. It always seems like there is a battle to prove to each department that competence and trust can be found in each other, which I think really deters us from feeling like a unified company. Definitely lowers morale and camaraderie especially in such potentially high stress situations.

    Moreover, it seems we were going through a lot of growing pains the past year and we're still feeling its effects. Gladly it has slowed down and I feel it has gotten a lot better, but management in engineering especially seems to still be a large issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to treat your employees with respect. Continue to challenge them and help them grow to their fullest potential. Allow them to understand that what they're working on is significant, and that communicating and being transparent (while still of course staying professional) is something that you value at OpenX.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at OpenX.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by the recruiter for the telephonic interview. First guy I talked with was very nice and asked me questions related to my resume and asked me to design a class for chess. Also asked me some general DS questions. Then in the second round, I was asked to code a problem in collabedit with a link where I can finally compile and run my code. I coded it quiet well in time without much difficulty. I missed out an edge case( very rare and difficult to figure it out in interview) which I fixed when he pointed it out to me. Later I got a mail from recruiter that I am rejected for the further interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't know the reason why they rejected me in the collabedit round even after writing a executable code with all the test cases cover in the first instance. The interviewer was rude and egoistic.   Answer Question
