Roz Ho, Senior VP and GM, Consumer & Metadata, TiVo is a 2018 Women in Technology Hall of Fame Inductee
TiVo at the Grace Hopper Celebration India 2018!
For the second year in a row, TiVo was a sponsor at the Grace Hopper Celebration India (GHCI), held from November 14th to 16th in Bangalore. GHCI is India’s largest gathering of women in technology. The conference offers a lineup of sessions that cover an extensive range of topics like leadership skills, loT, entrepreneurship and so on.
The TiVo India team hosted a booth, which was a huge hit at the event! We had a range of activities at the stall - quizzes, lucky draws, social media campaigns and much more! Our ‘TiVo Trivia’ quiz, based on a treasure hunt theme, saw phenomenal participation. The contestants had to find the answers within the booth, as well as a brochure, and this brought out their competitive streak! Some exciting goodies were up for grabs as well. We gave out nail polish with TiVo branding to all the stall visitors, which were very well received!
Moreover, Roz Ho was a speaker at the conference and shared her learnings at a speed mentoring session for budding women leaders.

Rest & Relaxation
We know how important it is to maintain a work-life balance, so our vacation, personal/ sick time policy is generous and flexible. Need to step away from your desk to recharge? Some of our facilities offer on-site gyms and/or game rooms.

We believe in and encourage giving back. TiVo works closely with local charities in our various locations to provide employees opportunities to participate in company-sponsored charitable events. In fact, we provide all full-time employees two paid days per year to do community service, and have a matching gift program for charitable donations.
We take pride in our work and are responsible for delivering on our commitments to customers.

Throughout our teams, departments and job functions around the world, TiVo employees are designing and creating the next generation of entertainment technology.
I have been working at TiVo full-time (Less than a year)
My skill set is valued even though I am an "older" worker. This emphasis on value of the person, regardless of age , highlights TiVo's commitment to diversity in the workplace. I brought experience with TV analytics products and digital advertising both from the advertiser side and supplier side to my new position at TiVo. Highly recommend looking at TiVo in a job search.
Only downside is crazy commute traffic. But that's a given with so many positions in the market.
Advice to Management
Keep up the openness to hiring diverse talent.
I had about 5 interviews from the team manager to the system architect. Every interviewer was concept oriented with some basic C/C++ questions and more intuitive questions on projects. Was also asked a couple of design questions based on abstract classes and virtual functions.
