    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GoodData.

    Interview

    Fair technical questions about databases and previous work experience. Interviewer was helpful when prompted and was very amicable throughout the duration of the process. There were courses available that helped prepare me for my job at the company.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GoodData (San Francisco, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Lengthy, long, complicated and convoluted. Multiple on-sites, unstructured interviews and a few interviewees were more intent on getting free consulting than sizing up for a fit. They then asked for a 30-60-90 day plan delivered as a presentation, but didn't set proper guidelines of expectations or outline the key friction they were wanting to solve. They weren't sure how the Marketing function should actually work, they didn't know what they didn't know... and when the hiring manager told me he was about to terminate one of the marketing team members who just interviewed me... it got awkward fast.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GoodData (San Francisco, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    This interview process was by far the worst. You would think smaller start-up companies are fast and responsive - not this one. No one ever followed up with me for any rounds moving forward. I had to continually wait a week, send a reminder note, then they are like oh yea let me set that up. They say they will get back to you by a certain time and never do. Sometimes they lie and say they are waiting for a person to get back to them, well hello it doesn't take over 1 week to respond to an email. I wish they were transparent and quick but this start up works slower than a 100k+ employee company. I never even got a rejection email/note, they just never responded back. It's been over 2 months since I came in for a long final interview, I've never heard back since. Of course I followed up, weeks later, and they say they are still collecting feedback. Really? It takes you over a month to collect feedback from 4 people? Horrible...to this day still no rejection email/note

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GoodData.

    Interview

    The company outreach and interview process was very timely with open communication.
    The recruiter was specific in what they found in my profile that made us a good fit and shared what they were looking for. Often, when approached by a recruiter, it doesn't appear as if they did their homework but in this case it was evident why she contacted me.
    I was kept up to date throughout the entire process and the recruiter and interviewers followed up exactly as promised.
    This was the most professional interview process I went through from initial contact through offer.

    Negotiation

    I was not interested in going back and forth in negotiations. I was honest with my expectations and satisfied with my offer.

    Vice President of Product Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GoodData (San Francisco, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The process at GoodData was remarkably smooth and positive. Throughout the entire process, I was never in the dark and never had to reach out to determine next steps....Jessica and Albert kept me very informed, worked with my already very busy schedule and accommodated last minute changes on my part, and scheduled a large number of interviews across the entire organization in San Francisco and Prague with what seemed like apparent ease (though I'm know it took considerable effort on their part to make it easy for me).

    Regardless of the level of the person I was interviewing with, the focus was on driving hard to create valuable and competitive products in the market while maintaining a culture that focused on collaboration, passion, and a very apparent team spirit. This was very welcome in that it was a characteristic that I was seeking for my next professional endeavor.

    Interviews at this level should be difficult and rigorous and while it was exactly that at GoodData, it was also very inviting and the welcome I received when I accepted the offer, was the best of my career.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GoodData in January 2018.

    Interview

    A few levels of interviews- internal recruiter, sales manager/VP Sales, and a presentation of the product suite. I found it to be pretty standard. The recruiter was fairly knowledgeable on the company-lots of buzzwords it seems.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GoodData (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Disjointed to say the least, I almost did not want to take the interview they could not get their act together. When I finally did interview with the Sales / Hiring manager I found them to be inept and somewhat challenged on sales concepts and achieving revenue

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at GoodData in January 2017.

    Interview

    Overall disappointing interview process. I applied directly on the website and had a call with the recruiter who moved me through the process with the hiring manager. After speaking with the hiring manager for more than an hour, I was told that they would be setting up a face to face meeting for the following week but that never happened. After several emails to the manager and the recruiter, I was told that they are moving forward with another candidate. I can understand that they might've found someone else better suited for the role but don't go radio silence on candidates.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    - The interview was thorough, the CEO of the company took the time to get to know me, that was very refreshing
    - Three phone interviews and an in-person interview
    - Try to understand the product from a big picture perspective; if you go in there and repeat their marketing assets, it's not going to get you very far
    - All of the interviews were extremely conversational, barely any "typical" interview questions

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GoodData (San Francisco, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process at GoodData was very smooth, and all the interviewers were so helpful and accommodating. The first round was a phone screen with the recruiter. She spoke with me and mostly asked culture fit questions, as well as general questions about my work experience and how I would fit within the team. The second round was in person where I met with the VP of Finance, Finance Associate, Accounting Director, and Revenue Accountant. During this portion of the interview, everyone was extremely nice and seemed so smart. They asked more experience questions, such as how my previous positions have prepared me for this company, what I knew/liked about the company, and various general accounting questions. After this interview, I got an offer. I'm not sure if this is typically the last interview, or if there are generally more rounds.

    • A brain teaser where you have to find the variables to an equation. I forget the exact questions, but it was definitely unexpected.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The recruiter called me to see what I was willing to leave my company for, and got that amount for me (I was pretty reasonable). I then tried to counter offer again, but was declined. I was happy with what I got regardless.
