MediaRadar – Why Work For Us?


We’re proud that every person at MediaRadar has their own unique set of talents and experiences. Our differences make us a smarter, more creative and a more agile organization. When we combine these talents with our common mission and shared values we accomplish amazing things.

Here’s how you can recognize a Radarian:

We’re GOOD PEOPLE.
We make a point to be empathetic, accountable and open-minded people. We treat everyone with kindness and respect. We strongly encourage know-it-alls, braggarts, and jerks to go elsewhere.

We LOVE DATA.
Nothing beats the facts. We’ve built a business around providing our clients with the highest quality data, and we use metrics, facts and numbers to inform important decisions of our own.

We’re TRANSPARENT.
We are open and forthcoming with each other, our prospects, and our clients -- even when it’s the tough thing to do, it’s always the right thing to do.

We’re TEAMMATES.
Being a Radarian means being part of a team. We unite across departments and roles to build, grow and sell great products. Teamwork makes our dream work.

We LISTEN.
We believe that one of our greatest assets is feedback from clients, teammates, and industry experts. Listening is fuel for our engines!

We’re CURIOUS.
We are ferociously inquisitive, inventive, and adaptable. The most rewarding work is the work that seems impossible. We strive to be thought-absorbers, thought-leaders, and thought-provokers.

    I worked at MediaRadar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great product. Can sell it to a ton of different industries. Lots of different ways to position it. Its unique and flexible which is great for great sales people.

    Cons

    Not an easy sell. While you can sell it to basically any industry, its also one of the most expensive products in the space making it impossible to hit quota without closing a "monster" account.

    Advice to Management

    Lead-Generation. We spend so much time identifying and getting in touch with a lead that we barely have time to sell.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MediaRadar (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    1. I had a phone interview with a MediaRadar developer during which he described what the company does and how it is structured. Then, he asked me about myself and my experiences etc.

    2. I was asked to complete a programming assignment which I did.

    3. I was asked to come down for an in-person technical interview. I was interviewed by 3 developers

    4. I was asked to come down for another interview to meet the team management.

    Interview Questions

    • Design an end-to-end twitter-like web application.   Answer Question
    • A telecommunications device emits continuously emits numbers. Ideally, whenever a particular number is emitted, it should later be emitted again. Numbers can be repeatedly emitted, but, in the end, they should be emitted an even number of times.

      Given a stream of the devices' output numbers, design an algorithm to test whether the above constraint is satisfied.   1 Answer
    • A question about a set of points and lines involving them. It's not coming to me now, but, anyway, the interviewers themselves were confused about it.   Answer Question
