    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ooyala in September 2016.

    Interview

    Pathetic voice. The voice was not clear at all. I had to repeat his words again and again. I didn't find him friendly and he missed one interview date also though he apologized for that. Bad interviewer and my hard luck :(
    The questions were from resume and the one coding question.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ooyala (Dallas, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The overall process is good. I liked that I wasn't spammed by technical questions, it was mostly theoretical and design conversation. I was talking to principals and seniors, so all conversations and questions was professional and well deliberated

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ooyala (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I did not have a good experience. In phone interview wasted 30 mins just talk about my related work, which I have already explained to recruiter. Finally, he asked a coding question he explained it properly and took at least 10mins. Although, the question explanation was good. Finally, I could not solve the problem because of time constraints and got panic.

    Sorry for the poor experience. The recruiter feedback should have been shared with the phone interviewer. Its normal for the interviewer to spend a few minutes on past exp but 30 min is a bit much. Thanks for the feedback

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Ooyala in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process for my position consist of phone interviews (all coding). The questions could take time to think about, but not too difficult if you have strong background in general computer science and/or have been preparing for interviews.

    The recruiter was nice and helped me move forward as fast as possible understanding my situation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ooyala (Mountain View, CA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    The Recruiter has contacted me through LinkedIn and invited me for an informal visit on site, where he showed me the office in MV and introduced me to some employees. Since I had some technical questions about the technology they work on, I had a 1:1 Q&A with an engineer, who explained me some things about their architecture. After this office visit I applied with my CV and was invited for a technical interview. The interviewer was a senior software engineer. Though he is a very qualified person in his profession, I had the impression he saw my CV for the first time. He asked some questions about my projects and education, however there was literally no feedback/follow up questions from his side, which made it difficult to understand what he wants to hear about. I gave him an overview over my educational background, internships and projects and expected him to ask more specific questions, but he just went on with the technical part of the interview (whiteboard coding). After the technical part he asked me if I have any questions about the company.

    The recruiter contacted me upon my application for a position. We talked about my interests and experience. He said they will review my resume and let me know. After about three weeks they came back with a request to arrange for a phone interview. The phone interview was held and the interviewer was very polite.
