    Two interviews. Simple questions about background knowledge on the field. Was not asked to code anything. Only experience based questions. Everyone was kind and straight forward. Did not get the job but I would apply again. Seems like a good company.

    Media Partnerships Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    One phone interview, 30 minutes long. Was asked to complete an analytic exercise regarding ad impression estimations. Came in for in-person which consisted of meeting with different 4 people. Everyone was nice, though some of the interview questions seemed pointless. I was told 2 weeks to hear back. A full month later, I emailed them because they had not been in contact. They did not reply. I'm utterly disappointed in that level of unprofessionalism. Interesting company, nice enough people (who boast 'honesty'/'transparency' as a company-wide value) yet lack honesty or transparency.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I went through three rounds of interviews:
    1) simply phone interview with team leader
    2) coding challenge (took around 4hrs)
    3) 1hr interview with 3 different team members

    I felt good about the interviews, however, after this entire process I got an email telling me that the position was terminated for budgetary reasons. A waste of both of our times.

    Marketing Engineer Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview followed by an in person interview with 5 interviewers. They were very friendly and informative. They wanted to know why I was interested in their company and the industry all together. They were nice, but definitely research the company... beforehand. Also, if you sound like you know a lot, they will ask how you know, so have sources.

    Strategy/Account Leadership Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Someone internally referred me for a role and I was contacted by recruiter within a week. Recruiter contacted me and provided high-level overview of role and team and an in-person interview was set up to meet with the leaders. Conditional offer extended and references were requested, but never contacted. Since I had contacted references to expect a call from someone, it was very embarrassing for MM to not contact them. Also declined another offer since the intent from MM was clearly states. Very unorganized process and never heard back from MM, despite follow ups. It is apparent that this company doesn't value or respect people's time or reputation in the industry. Looks like I dodged a bullet from working for an org that is so unorganized.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First round with manager to see why you're interested in MediaMath and Platform Solutions specifically. Final Round was 6, 30 minute conversations with the team. I was told the interviews went well then received an e-mail saying MediaMath is entering a "hiring freeze" and only hiring internally at the moment. Would have been nice to know upfront before going to New York for a 3 hour interview and wasting everyone's time.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at MediaMath (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for an entry-level position as a recent grad. They called me on the phone and we spoke for about 30 minutes. No tough questions, very basic and straightforward. They explained their business, which was very helpful. Definitely prepare yourself by studying their website and know a background of their company. I don't think I got the interview b/c I didn't have enough specific experience in that area.
