    AppLovin CEO Adam Foroughi: Silicon Valley office culture should be more than an open workspace - Silicon Valley Business Journal

    An open company culture leads to happier employees, smoother operations, and better profits. That's why most Silicon Valley companies have adopted open-office layouts that create a more inclusive and collaborative environment. However, this goes beyond getting rid of cubicles - although honesty might be the best policy, it can be challenging to foster it regularly.

    One of my favorite things about working at AppLovin is our culture of mentorship. Last year, I wrote about my experience having just joined AppLovin and the impostor syndrome I was able to overcome thanks to mentorship from countless colleagues.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at AppLovin (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2017.


    During the phone screen I was asked questions on standard networking topics such as subnetting, BGP, ethernet switching etc., Linux questions such as how to view disk space on a linux host and fundamental programming related questions such as writing iterative/conditional loops etc.. I was called for an in-person interview a week later where my skills related to the above topics were tested in greater detail.
