    Interview

    I interviewed with the director. He started from asking my location and described the company and position. Only two simple questions: explained p-value to non-technical people and tell what's overfitting.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pocket Gems (San Francisco, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was given a take home challenge after the initial phone screen. They provided several dataset and asked us to help target a group of customers for a promotional campaign. Felt like the company wasn't interested in hiring at all and just wanted us to do their work for them.

    First Round: phone interview: go through resume
    Take home assignment: after submission: Rej
    I don't think Pocket Gems really want to hire new graduates since I got rej at 6:48 am, this is weird

    1. Phone call with HM
    2. Take-home exam

    I really think PG is just using hiring to get "free" ideas, just take advantages of the candidates. Avoid it. Save your time unless u have nothing to do.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Pocket Gems (San Francisco, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone call, followed by an onsite interview with the analytics manager. Then a homework assignment: design an experiment to test the results of a sales offer. Included SQL queries and data analysis questions (create a model etc).
    Interviewer was friendly, office has a lot of character.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pocket Gems in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was asked some details about the projects on my resume and was given a homework. The homework itself is interesting, but I assume they are looking for someone with relevant work experience. You have to be very familiar with those game metrics. Otherwise, it will be hard to complete the homework in 8 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • Talk about one project/experience that relevant to this position.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pocket Gems.

    Interview

    General fit call with hiring manager (go into detail about the projects you've worked on, etc.), followed by a "homework" exercise, followed by another phone interview about the project. Didn't get an on-site, though was never told this.

    The project was interesting, but the interview process as a whole seemed pretty disorganized and inefficient. Unprofessional that they never got back to me (not even an automated rejection) after I'd spent ~4 weeks in process.

    Interview Questions

    • Build a game user LTV model given a slice of user in-app purchase data.   Answer Question
