At Criteo, life is full of bean bags, nerf guns and scooter races. But we are so much more than our perks and quirks. Watch our new video to discover the truth behind what makes us tick. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ1nx
What does it take to stand out in today’s hyper-competitive travel industry? For @Flight_Centre, it’s trust, brand loyalty, and not necessarily just being the cheapest on the market. Here’s a look at how they do it: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQGcO
We are a global community, united by our contagious energy and hunger for performance. We are challengers, go (Go, GO)-getters, innovators, makers, logicians, and technical magicians. We dissect, debate, and deliberate, dreaming big and aiming high.
Belonging to Criteo means having the freedom to drive your ideas. Taking risks, moving quickly, and enjoying every moment. When you combine our computational power and unparalleled datasets with the intelligence of our people, anything is possible.
From our entrepreneurial beginnings to the success we share today, it’s been a journey of global proportions. But through it all Criteo wouldn’t be the company it is today without the amazing people behind it.
We create impact at scale
We serve 5 billion ads a day. That’s about 4 million requests per second. We push the limits of deep learning and AI. And we don’t plan on slowing down. From intern to engineer, our people make a real impact. As a collective, we are hungry to succeed and push each other to be the best. Sure, it’s a LOT of hard work, but it’s also incredibly rewarding.
We go, Go, GO
We are all about moving quickly, innovating constantly and delivering real change. Here you can take every opportunity and run with it. It’s your chance to drive your ideas and have the freedom to make them happen. In return, we expect you to be all in.
We connect through playful energy
Our best perk is amazing people. While we take our work seriously, we love to have fun and laugh along the way. Every office is filled with equal measures of hard work and playful energy. From yoga to rooftop parties, early morning kale smoothies to late night karaoke sessions – we do it all, together.
We’re a company that’s sharply aware our world is primarily driven by technology. At Criteo we face some of the most challenging, but interesting problems in the tech industry. We work at a scale of speed, performance and complexity that few others in the industry can compete with. Every day is different and we’re proud to make it a culture that always challenges your skills.
Empowerment: We believe in hiring the best engineers in the industry and then letting them get on with what they do best – designing, coding and releasing state of the art software.
Mobility: In our Voyager program our engineers get to pick which team they want to work on for 2-4 weeks, boosting collaboration, networking and maybe even leading to switching teams.
Agility: We work in a fast pace environment where we build and release stuff frequently to deliver value soon and adapt to changes quickly.
Variety: We have many ways to get your code to production including our Hackathon, 10% projects, Voyager and more.
Multicultural: You will work with diverse perspectives, alongside global team players and some of the brightest minds in the industry
I have been working at Criteo full-time (More than a year)
I consider myself a Silicon Valley veteran as I've worked for quite a few companies in the valley. Criteo is one of the greatest companies I've worked for.
Lots of smart and talented people. Some of them are super nice too. :)
Top notch pay and benefits (has to be deserved, obviously).
Flat structure. This implies that employees are treated as adults and expected to behave like adults.
Open and honest communication from the top (very little BS or propaganda)
Truly diverse with all ages, origins, accents, genders, and orientations treated with respect. Everybody is encouraged to be themselves and treat each other with respect.
Voyager program designed for those who want to work for a month in other parts of the world. (The travel policy though is not very friendly to those with families and kids.)
After you have earned some karma, you'll have freedom to do what you think is important (which sometimes can run into some political barriers)
It is a midsize company which means that there are enough resources to support you and that you can still have a meaningful impact on company's bottom line
A lot of focus on hiring the right people. I think it is super important.
Lots of challenges and opportunities
A bit slow to deal with people who don't fit well. (though there is a delicate balance)
"One size fits all" travel policy is too restrictive for employees with families.
ESPP is missing to make the perks package complete
The company is growing so fast that there is a legitimate concern over maintaining the company culture.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great job! Watch carefully for the company culture. Talk more often to the people "in the trenches".
I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo in August 2013.
Talent Manager was super charming and did a great job of selling the position/company. She also provided a very clear picture of what I'd be walking into. The rest of the interview panel had a good understanding of my background without me having to tell too much - it was clear they knew the industry/function well.
got what I asked for right off the bat
