    Speaking primarily of the engineering organization: Strong engineering leadership and management, sense of ownership among software engineers, and serious application of software craftsmanship. The San Francisco office has had ups and downs, but is on the upswing - there was a group of engineering leadership that left but has since been replaced by building from the inside up, and the current group has made the office their own. There is still huge opportunity to be a leader and make a difference in both the quality and market viability of the product. The people who are at Tapjoy now are people who want to be at Tapjoy, which makes it a great place to work.


    Seems like it took a while to get traction in a crowded market. The SF office is not well designed for collaboration, as the office has two wings which effectively divide people from each other.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to remove features from the product that don't work and double down on the things that are the big opportunities. Focus, focus, focus.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Tapjoy.


    They were very easy to talk to, quite friendly too. There was a phone call, and then an onsite interview. Overall my experience was positive except for the fact that they never told me they weren't moving forward with me, I had to follow up about it a few times, and only then did they tell me. It turned out not to be a great fit from my perspective either, but it would have been more helpful if they had let me know sooner.
