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.

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:
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 teams and personalities, but we’re primarily a sales and client services office, with a strong dash of marketing and 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 burgers.

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.

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 across the street at B Bar or at our very local House of Shields.
Office vibe: Lively and energetic
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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Quantcast.Interview Details
Interviewing with Quantcast was very smooth. I first reached out to a recruiter through a friend, and she and I did an informational call in the fall. They didn't have any post-grad job offerings up at the moment, but she told me to get in touch in a few weeks. When I did, they informed me that they'd opened a Sales Planner position, and that I should apply.
I submitted my application online, and then went through three rounds of phone interviews. The first was with the college recruiter that I'd already been speaking with, the second was with a member of the sales team, and the third had three back-to-back rounds of half-hour calls with HR and sales people. The calls were different than other interviews I'd had, in that they asked very little about me - the vast majority of each call was set up to be me asking questions about Quantcast and the position. It was very conversational, and everybody I spoke to was super-nice, but the lack of questions from them did throw me off at first. The questions they did ask were behavioral and pretty standard - "What do you know about us?", "Why do you want to work in this industry?", etc... I got the sense that they were using the calls as a way to see if I would be a good fit culturally, and to see if I cared about the job enough to do research and come up with questions. There was no in-person interview.
Finally, about two weeks after the last interview, I received my offer and accepted it.Interview Questions
