Hulu – Why Work With Us?


WE'RE HULUGANS

We are a dedicated, user-focused bunch working together at the intersection of entertainment and technology, changing the future of TV for millions. At Hulu, we’re looking for people to help us empower everyone to discover, share, and celebrate the stories that connect us. People who love what we do, the products we make, and obsess over every line of code. We know that what we can do together is better than anything a single one of us could do alone. We are committed to our values and proud of the culture that we’ve built and own.

OUR VISION AND VALUES

Our Vision

Lead the future of Streaming TV by creating new and familiar experiences for our viewers, amplifying bold voices, and challenging our diverse builders and creators to push the boundaries of storytelling and technology.

Our Values

As Hulugans, we're inspired by the opportunity to be the number one choice and we’re proud of the culture we've built and own. Our values comprise the set of behaviors that define our culture. They guide us through decisions we make about our work and our teams.

We Start with The Viewer
Viewers come first. We strive to understand their wants and needs to ultimately earn their trust and loyalty. We know who matters most, so our decision-making process always starts with the viewer.

We Think Big
We see endless opportunity in front of us. The opportunities we’re after require unconventional thinking, creativity, and a willingness to embrace risk. Pushing our thinking starts with asking ourselves every day, ‘is there a better way?’

We Are One Team
Only together can we redefine TV. We are accountable to one another, committed to aligning on common goals, and moving forward. We do so because we know that no one person or team alone could achieve what we’re out to do.

We Embrace Fun
We love what we do and believe we do our best by bringing laughter and creativity to our work. We set ambitious goals and celebrate our wins and each other. Having fun while working hard is uniquely who we are.

We Are All Hulugans
Our people are our greatest differentiator. We embrace diversity and create a culture where everyone is an insider. We do what we say we will and have trust in one another to do the right thing. Above all, we treat each other with respect and empathy, striving to continually elevate what it means to be a Hulugan.

    I have been working at Hulu full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - I really enjoy my team. We can easily joke around and keep the mood light.
    - People are very smart and capable.
    - On my team we are given tasks and not hand held. This is a pro to me because at my last place I felt like I was constantly shown how to code or do something. There's a lot more fun in being presented with the problem and having to track down the right people, learn the right APIs, and think about the most efficient way to solve a problem. I enjoy that aspect mostly because it gives me a sense of trust from everyone else that I am capable to do my job.
    - Great pay

    Cons

    - Like I said above, I enjoy my team, but this varies from team to team. I'm lucky but I know other teams are not as social. Other teams may have worse managers etc. Just know that if you want to interview you can always move inside the company to a different team after a year or so.
    - Long hours sometimes
    - Did not experience this with my team but there have been many long and hard projects that were tossed last minute after being code completed.

    Advice to Management

    For me specifically, keep being awesome

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hulu.

    Interview

    Initial phone chat with recruiter followed by a technical phone screen that lasted around an hour.

    Next step was a virtual 'onsite' that consisted of 2 coding interviews and 2 system design interviews. The interviews were extremely technical and design focused. The coding interviews focused very heavily on creating reliable code, thinking of edge cases and collaborating well with the interviewer. System design interviews were fairly standard and covered both designing a new system and talking about design experience and previous systems that I had designed.

    This was easily one of the most professional and well run interview processes that I had been part of. It also dived very deep on a technical level so you'll need to be very well prepared. There was no room to hand wave your way through it. These factors gave me additional confidence in Hulu as a company from both the technical bar and general organization which was key in me accepting the offer.
