What We Look For

Quantcast's core competencies lie in large-scale, real-time data processing and analysis. Big data, predictive modeling, interesting data sets, insightful analysis and uniquely powerful tools are at the center of what we do, which makes working on any of the engineering teams a challenging yet cool and exciting experience. You'll learn a ton from our sharp, collegial team — we pride ourselves on pushing quality code quickly within a nimble, agile environment. And since we’re a small company, our engineers get more end-to-end responsibility, and have bigger, individual impact. Sound like you?

Working with big data isn’t easy — or cheap. Big data typically demands massive amounts of storage and computing, electricity and space to run and cool all the hardware, plus ample staffing and resources. As any organization that works with large data clusters in production can tell you, the associated costs can multiply quickly, making efficiency paramount.

    I have been working at Quantcast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very bright and intelligent people, high bar for hiring
    - Focus on employee growth. Managers are responsible for growing employees
    - Engineering focused. Engineers are always put first
    - Perks, free food, bar in the new office, happy hours, parties, etc.

    Cons

    - Onboarding is hard, the ad-tech era is full of acronyms and new terms, and Quantcast is also full of internal names and codenames, many of them deprecated but documents are still lying around so a new employee has a really hard time understanding wtf is going on
    - Employer branding: Quantcast's size and scale is unmatched, and the company is doing great, but it's only known to insider and not many people outside of Quantcast know about this.

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Quantcast.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from a Recruiter in San Francisco about a month later. We scheduled a quick phone screening. She was very nice and professional - although, they ended up saying they only wanted the hire individuals with experience in the ad tech space. Not sure why she scheduled interviews with candidates who don't have a background in this space if they're not willing to give them a chance. Overall, it was a positive experience.
