Employee Spotlight Interview: Jekka K.
Jekka came to work on the Quantcast corporate sales team after spending a year teaching English in China and Thailand. Although she didn’t come from a sales background, Quantcast’s robust training program allowed her to quickly get up to speed. Jekka says that the skill set she developed from teaching has been particularly useful in Sales at Quantcast, because the technology we sell is so new it’s often necessary to educate prospective clients about our offerings at the same time as selling our product.
Employee Spotlight Interview: Matt G.
As a Quantcast field sales representative based in Los Angeles, Matt strives to find creative ways to bring in new prospects for our business, and build quality relationships with potential clients. Matt’s diverse background in media and audience technology has given him unique industry insights that help him plan unusual and fun promotional events, while sustaining a solid network of relationships with Quantified and soon-to-be Quantified clients. According to Matt, when you work in the field and are not on site at our office, it’s crucial to forge great relationships with fellow Quantcasters and stay in constant communication with the rest of the team.
Employee Spotlight Interview: Brian T.
Brian came to the Web team at Quantcast after having graduated from Carnegie Mellon in 2010 and subsequently working in several start-ups. Brian started out working with product managers on developing our measurement product for mobile platforms and apps. Right away he was expected to help find solutions to big problems. Brian says, “That’s the opportunity that Quantcast presents, to really work on something big right away. You get to have a voice and an influence from the get-go,” which Brian says is a big part of our culture. Great ideas, and the responsibility accompanying them, are valued no matter who they come from.
We’re located in cool places like:
Our HQ is in San Francisco, located in the SOMA district, right across the street from Moscone Center and a short jaunt from AT&T Park. Since this is our corporate headquarters, most of our employees are here. We work in an open space where you will often see engineering stand ups in the middle of the office, scooters racing around, and lots of visitors in and out! When we aren’t in the office, you can find us eating lunch at Yerba Buena Gardens (when it’s sunny), or having a drink at our very local House of Shields.
Office vibe: Lively and energetic
The New York office is situated on Park Avenue South, next to Madison Avenue and the Flatiron, near several of NYC’s major agencies, advertisers and publishers. Our growing office has an eclectic mix of personalities, but we’re primarily a sales and client services office, with a strong dash of creative in the mix. Our favorite happy hour spots? Cocktails on the Gansevoort Rooftop Bar next door, brews and beef-heart hotdogs at the Cannibal across the street, or nearby Madison Square Park for some Shake Shack.
Office vibe: Enthusiastic and eclectic
Our London office is located in trendy Noho, or “Medialand” as it is often referred to. We’re nestled in with some of the best restaurants and celebrity hangouts around, a short walk from bustling Oxford Circus. Being a Sales and Marketing division of Quantcast, the office is always full of activity — we have an open plan office with a fun and relaxed but focused environment.

- Application Details
I applied through other source – interviewed at Quantcast.Interview Details
First I participated in the code challenge, which is something like a mixture of BFS and string match. After a few weeks I received email from the recruiter discussing the schedule of the interview. During the interview I was first asked to talk through one of my project. Then I got two technical questions. Question #1 is to find and remove all the duplicates in the array(unsorted), which I only came up with a brute force solution - sorting the array. Question #2 is to find the k smallest elements in N lines of data, where N is a fairly large number. I solved it with maintaining a min heap.Interview Questions
