Ooyala has a globlal sales team of over 115 people. Operating in over a dozen of countries. Our Sales Engineering team is an amazing blend of customer facing and engineering skills. We asked Luke (who manages Sales Engineering) what its like to be part of Ooyala's sales team.
"Working at Ooyala means you get to personally create the future of video. Even after only working here a couple weeks I found myself presenting to one of my favorite websites and they loved what we had to offer. That's happened a lot since then and working to make a better video experience on the sites I use, and my friends and family use every day, is hardly work at all! The biggest brands and media companies look to our team, the SE team, to advise them and help them tap into the growing digital video audience. Together with a very successful and incredible sales team we have a lot of fun and find lots of reasons to celebrate. 2014 was a big year for us and for video but the future of digital video is enormous so join us at Ooyala if you want to build it."
Ooyala is growing around the globe....Here are some of the Ooyala Offices!
I have been working at Ooyala full-time (More than 3 years)
Great culture, food, unlimited PTO, beer and pizza Friday's, work life balance, ping pong, and lots of team fun! Bonuses are always nice too.
Going through a transformation but after 10 years it was time. Changes at exec leadership haven't helped but that is soon to be solidified. Engineering in a bit of disarray but we too are coming together. Engineering leadership is working hard and the results will be proven. HR Dept seems to get a bad rap but they have also been through many changes. HR Business Partner is highly respected for her efforts and should not go unnoticed. Hard to find anyone that is more supportive than her. Director of Recruiting and that team has delivered without any excuses bringing in talent under any cause. Product Team is on fire and has added some missing pieces of talent that will do nothing but help the company hit our milestones. Sales team may be better now that it has ever been in the past with great leadership and team members.
Advice to Management
Instead of finding weaknesses in your employees look at their strengths and allow them to prosper. Stay transparent. Ask the employees for advice. They know better than anyone what is needed. It is a major set back when talent walks out the door for any reason. Get on the retention band wagon. Go back to taking care of the employees and your customers will be taken care of. Now is the time! Let's do this!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Ooyala (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2017.
Phone interview for 3-month contract to hire. Great conversation with the hiring manager and they were looking to fill multiple positions. Seems like an awesome company to start out at and get experience in the tech world.
