How to Get Hired

We asked Quantcast for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Candidates that demonstrate their ability to deal with ambiguity, get things done, and give credit to others when talking about their accomplishments tend to excel at Quantcast. They’re able to admit their own shortcomings and explain how they’ll make up for it. An especially strong indicator is demonstrating leadership. This does not mean leading people necessarily. It could mean taking initiative in your own life such as deciding to start running marathons or to get involved in an open source side project and become a major contributor. Those characteristics go a long way because it shows the candidate approaches things from their own motivation.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Sometimes it’s as simple as being prepared, thoughtful and taking a personalized approach, or demonstrating a high level of interest in Quantcast. We live in an age where information is abundant -- take the time to learn what we do, research our competitors, and be able to explain why we’re different. Coming to our events and being genuine in your cover letter are two great ways to stand out. For engineers, the coding exercises provide a great opportunity for candidates to shine. The exercises are built to be hard so that we can tell pretty quickly whether someone is absolutely not a fit, will do a good job, or is a truly exceptional candidate. Lastly, connect with Quantcast employees to learn about our culture and the team you’re interested in. Don’t apply to all available jobs, but focus on the role you want and be smart about going after it.

Are there any unusual or especially rigorous steps of your hiring process that candidates should be aware of?

The typically rigorous steps of the hiring process require candidates to do more than talk about their skills, but to demonstrate them. For Engineering this takes the form of the whiteboard coding test. For Sales they’re asked to give a fake sales pitch in front of the prospective team. Client strategists walk through an account call with the interviewers, while product applicants go through business cases demonstrating how they would fix or launch certain products. Quantcast interviews are not just behavioral. We don’t try to trick people with strange riddles or unrelated math problems, but we will ask them to demonstrate the experience they’re claiming to have.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

This coming year we’re continuing to focus on hiring a lot of senior engineers and engineering leadership. We were founded by two exceptional engineers and that will always be a central part of our identity. We’re also making sure to have a strong team on the ground in our growing international locations. It’s important that the first set of people in a new country and a new office are recognized leaders in the market and can build out a similarly strong team.

 

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Educate yourself about Quantcast and our industry. You need to have an answer for why you want to work here. Reach out to people at Quantcast -- not just in recruiting but employees across the organization -- to help get a better understanding of what we do and what you’d enjoy. We’re very approachable and it doesn’t hurt that we also have a great referral program! The careers page of our website is always up to date and our Glassdoor and LinkedIn profiles are other great places to start. Attend our industry events and MeetUps. Watch some of our webinars. Find what you’re interested in, connect with others and share your excitement with us!
