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

    Pros

    - mission driven company with a focus on improving human health through connected fitness

    - CEO and management team with incredible passion and vision for global digital/mobile leadership

    - incredible growth on every front, revenue, talent, brand profile, athletes, teams and assets

    - world class proven digital leadership and talent via acquisition of 3 of the top health/fitness category app leaders

    Cons

    - with rapid growth comes change, uncertainty, and a need to be able to "go with the flow" at times

    - working here will likely force you to grow your career, and growing generally happens outside our comfort zones: you will be uncomfortable at times. Just like fitness. Your teammates will pick you up.

    Advice to Management

    Identify the people who have the passion to fulfill on this mission and make sure they can advance quickly to rise to their potential.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MapMyFitness (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    After contacting random employee's on LinkedIn who were very friendly and helpful I was contacted by the VP of Engineering for a brief phone interview that was 50% personal and 50% technical. The phone interview was a great experience and went well.

    A few weeks later I was contacted again about coming out to Denver. MapMyFitness was very helpful when it came to picking a hotel and flights and informed me I would be reimbursed - which did happen in a very timely fashion.

    On arriving in Denver I was taken to a very nice lunch which was both casual and a 1 on 1 personality interview. Once back at the office I had a series of technical interviews which ranged from front to back end development and everything in between. The questions were all very reasonable and applicable to the job. When I struggled the interviewers were happy to help me along a little and let me reach the answer on my own. Interviewing took about 3 hours.

    What really stood out about MapMyFitness was the quality of people at the office. All were very friendly and easy to talk to. The interview process was truly a blast. It's obvious they work hard but know how to enjoy work. Everyone seems very passionate. The office currently is a smaller building in LODO which is very cozy and would be a joy to go to work to everyday. Dogs are allowed and very open work area.

    Bottom line: If you are a passionate developer that likes doing it all and you're social and interesting in fitness you will not find a better place than MapMyFitness.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't give away interview questions, just think about what challenges MapMyFitness faces with the data they do collect and look over their website for what technologies they use.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was very competitive for the market and generous but another offer was more attractive in order to pay off my and my wife's loans.

    I'm still not sure I made the right decision to decline.
