    Interview

    Tough coding challenge. They asked pretty challenging Leetcode questions. Strong understanding of dynamic programming and algorithms is a must in addition to a good understanding of data structures. Waiting to see my result on the coding challenge but doubt i will move ahead.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Quantcast in October 2017.

    Interview

    One coding challenge was given, which is supposed to be 3-4 hours in one sitting, but it should take an average programmer at least 10 hours to finish. It feels like throwing you a big class assignment to help them write the codes that their engineers do not want to do at work.

    Two rounds of the phone interviews with the Engineering team. Coding questions are very relative to the real work done at Quantcast. I got positive feedback from those interviews and was expected to move me forward on the onsite interviews, but the recruiter requested another round of interview asking me probability and machine learning modeling question. I had interviewed with many companies, and this is the first one asking me how to calculate the probability of flipping coins. Yes, I did take my probability class, but getting those question on a software engineer technical interview is out of my imagination. Then I got an email after the weird modeling interview and said they decided to move forward with other candidates. I do not know whether the other candidates have been through this process, but it just happened to me. I highly recommend the people who are about to apply to Quantcast actively communicate with your recruiter on the hiring process, the expectation of the position you are applying to, and the content of the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Quantcast.

    Interview

    I talked with recruiting at a major conference. I was then sent homework to complete in one sitting on my own time, which took about three hours. Following that, I had a phone interview with a university recruiter. Shortly thereafter, I did a technical interview and coding assignment with a member of their engineering team. My nerves got the best of me and I failed to adequately communicate my coding process, but both the engineering interviewer and the university recruiter were understanding and encouraged me to apply again later on.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quantcast (San Francisco, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    My experience was very bad in this company. I cleared the recruiter, phone screen (manager) and then an onsite of about 5 rounds. Easy algorithm questions, and some questions on the project I worked on. The manager was friendly and also some of the other interviewers. I had a lunch with 2 workers who seemed ok too. After all these, the recruiter calls me next day to take a some sort of puzzle hands on coding exercise!! Weird. They basically wasted my PTO for nothing. Advise to Quantcast - Please keep these take home exercise before the onsite, so candidates do not waste their time half-day in onsite. I declined the coding exercise.
