    I have been working at JW Player full-time (More than 3 years)


    - Great work environment
    - Management is easy to communicate with and open to suggestions
    - Open about business decisions and coming changes
    - Unlimited Vacation
    - Snacks and good coffee


    - The sales department seems to be in flux and is constantly re-organizing
    - Many changes have been happening structure wise, but understandably so with such rapid growth

    Advice to Management

    The culture seems to slowly be fizzling out, which is one of the best parts of this company. My only advice would be to try harder to hold on to the culture as the company continues to grow rapidly.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JW Player (New York, NY) in October 2017.


    Applied online, got response from HR. HR was pretty good with scheduling all rounds, after the 1st technical phone call was an online challenge with some SQL and algorithms. Next step On site.
    They have 2 people interview you, in every round, round 1 - I was clueless about this Design problem, one of the interviewers couldn't stop yawning, I was thinking c'mon man, get some coffee, its only 20 meters away. Somehow got over that 1st hour, 2nd round was some more design stuff, and I found it fun to work through that problem. 3rd round was a coding exercise and given 30 mins, that was impossible to do in C++ on time, without the support of high level libraries, I tried but failed. Throughout this process, I felt like they dont know anything about me, and especially the first round was a disaster. They ask nothing about me or my experience, I think they dint even read my resume ...

    JW Player Raises $20M To Expand Its Video Platform

    There's been "a very big shift" in the thinking of many online publishers, according to JW Player President Chris Mahl. Yes, many of them are looking at Facebook and YouTube as platforms where they can build awareness, but he argued that they're "really concentrating on driving traffic on their own sites."
