Mission: Inventing the future of marketing technology that is people centric, fully integrated with advertising, and unifies the industry through a wall-less garden.
I have been working at TUNE full-time (More than a year)
TUNE has great perks and a great working environment. I don't experience as much of that as I'd like, because I'm remote and only in the office for a week every month, but I appreciate it when I'm there.
In addition, the company has clients that are in the absolute top tier ... names pretty much everyone on the planet recognizes. That means we're doing some very significant work at very significant scale, which is exciting.
Leadership of the company typically has their heads screwed on, understand the issues facing mobile, marketing, and advertising, and are working hard to address them.
The company also does some incredibly creative marketing projects, including Postback, a major mobile marketing conference, and marketing campaigns with drones as giveaways, or cakes in packages, or ugly sweaters ... all tied to various marketing themes.
Finally, the company does a really good job finding and sharing insight about the future of mobile, the future of marketing, and how brands can prepare for it today.
TUNE is a startup, and there are generally bumps in the startup road. It's not easy to go from 5 people to 300, and that means some mistakes in product mix, in team formation, and company culture. But overall, the company has and continues to work hard to fix them, and is succeeding in an extremely competitive landscape.
Advice to Management
Continue pushing hard to integrate product around a unified story.
Learn lessons from past failures, sure, but don't stop making big bets on new products and technology
Have a thick skin: no-one does anything significant without critics and complainers.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TUNE in January 2017.
I had a pleasant 30 minute phone interview. The questions were fairly basic and predictable, aimed at determining personality. The woman I spoke to was nice but she was definitely getting through a script of questions and recording her perceptions. A well prepared set of answers to a bunch of common interview questions found online would probably be helpful. My biggest problem was not having prior sales experience so I was trying to work in how my other experience can lend itself to preparing me for a sales role. It's a tough sell and in the end didn't work for me.
