    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AppNexus.

    Interview

    45min phone interview with the hiring manager. 3wks later I attended the on-site, which was comprised of 5 1hr interviews (behavioural, case study, 3 with team) + lunch. Recruiter always provided an update within 2-3 days.

    Interview Questions

    • Comprehensive list of behavioural questions - tell me about a time when you demonstrated leadership/ experienced conflict/ had client interaction etc. Case study was open-ended - considerations for publisher going digital. Teach me something. Team posed few questions related to ad auction that required no prior knowledge.   Answer Question
