I worked at MediaMelon full-time
Talented, hard-working and friendly team. Great work culture - collaborative, ideas- and results- driven. Super-smart CEO, with great industry relationships and product knowledge. Great industry to work in - technology combined with media & entertainment. Company is solving an important problem, which is streaming in better quality to various connected devices. It has been one of the best work experiences for me so far. I left the company due to relocation for family reasons.
The team has offices in three different locations, making communication challenging, but that is how it is with most companies these days.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work.
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MediaMelon (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.
Started with several phone interviews, followed up by an in-person interview at the offices in San Francisco. Hiring process was fairly smooth. CEO completely handled the interviewing process personally. CEO is all over the place, and fairly disorganized, but is usually pretty responsive.
Worst part by far is that until I was in the office in the first day to sign my contract, I found out I was being brought on as an independent contractor, not an employee, and would later be "upgraded" to employee status (still has not happened after 3-4 months) - so all the benefits I assumed I was getting from our previous conversations during the interview process (including med insurance and vacation time) were unavailable.
