I have been working at TubeMogul full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
As a veteran of TubeMogul, of various start-ups, and several IPOs, the one thing that sticks out to me about TubeMogul is how we've managed to preserve the no BS culture. I would even go so far as to suggest that the culture has strengthened as leaders at all levels of the organization have matured and the company as a whole has grown more confident with success. At the end of the day, we all just want to get things done and kick some arse in the evolving video technology space: personal success naturally follows. As the old sports adage goes, winning cures all ills, right?
As a technologist, what I most appreciate here is the general lack of red tape, the ability to move quickly, and the lack of sacred cows: constant evolution and improvement is definitely a theme, even if that comes a bit slower these days because not all development is greenfield development. But to me, this is part of the challenge: it's one thing to create; quite another to create something that can be maintained and improved over time. In any case, the general feeling is that the ball is in our court.
Colleagues are sharp and open: as with any collection of talented folks, egos may exist but are very skillfully and courteously tucked behind the ear. The engineering culture is very conscious of the tension btw. preserving start-up velocity and the need to add some natural process as the organization grows: processes are not taken lightly and instituted with care.
No place is perfect but what is important to me is that an organization is self-aware and takes active measures to improve. There is a training group devoted to improving structure and on-boarding programs across all teams. Engineering compensation is definitely at market; and high performers are noticed and routinely rewarded.
Cutting edge, high performance, distributed "Big Data" systems in production (not prototypes or POCs or academic exercises). What are you waiting for? Get your keyword on (haha). By the way, we're hiring.Cons
The general attitude of the company is aggressive, not aggressive as in coworker interaction, which is quite friendly; but this is a company that wants to win: the dynamicism/optimism of TubeMogul's scrappy start-up roots is palpable at all levels and with that comes a certain intensity which I personally enjoy but may not be for everyone. Work/life balance can occasionally be a factor but that has improved a ton over time as the company has staffed up aggressively.
On the flipside, what you're getting is 90% of the start-up experience as far as the ability to make an impact, without much of the financial risk.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Don't be afraid to stick with what works, even if it's not in the conventional playbook. Improve, solidify, but stay nimble.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at TubeMogul.Interview Details
I had a phone screen with HR and as next step in the process, called in to meet the team. I first met with the account director and she was a spitfire. I couldn't even finish my sentences and she would move on to the next question. I also had a "case" to think through, not sure how an offline related case is relevant to a digital video company though. Next was an account manager who chewed gum throughout the entire interview. And interviewees are always taught to be professional! His questions were straightforward.
Lastly, was another account manager and he was on his laptop the entire time, barely looked up (even when asking questions) to engage with me. He could've at least had a preamble he would be on his laptop taking notes. Worst 2 hours of interviewing with unprofessionals.Interview Questions
