Mission: Removing the expense and inefficiency of ad agencies by working directly with partners to automate the building and buying of advertising. To be the best and last local marketing decision a business will ever make.
I have been working at OwnLocal full-time (Less than a year)
These people are incredible. I've never enjoyed working with my coworkers more. People truly care about the quality of their work and care about their teammates.
The maturity of the company is occasionally questionable.
I applied online. I interviewed at OwnLocal in May 2016.
I had a phone interview with them. It was the standard "get to know you" interview where they ask questions about you and your resume. He asked me to send in a coding sample after the interview. He had mentioned several times that they were swamped with applicants and gave no specifications on what kind of code to send. So I sent in a simple linked list, thinking it might be helpful for them to look at something they already knew about. I was soon denied to continue on in their (6-step) interview process. I was rather annoyed because I hadn't been given good instructions on what to send in. They could have easily asked for something more complicated, and I would have sent it.
