    Great place to work if you are in the beginning of you career. The engineers are really smart and you get to learn a lot from your peers.

    The work life balance is good for a startup

    There is time for a lot of fun apart from work. (ping-pong tournaments are really fun)

    The culture is very diverse, you get to interact with ppl from all round the globe


    Top tire management is a little dominating.

    If you don't perform up to their expectation, you WILL get fired immediately

    Interview Details

    A recruiter called me, asked about my salary expectations and scheduled a phone interview with someone who held a similar role. The phone interview focused on quick math and problem solving questions related to digital advertising.

    The next round was three consecutive in person interviews at their corporate headquarters. The interviews had a similar format as the phone interview.
