    I have been working at Rocket Fuel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rocket Fuel was a family.... It really was, and we were all rich for 5 minutes, lol. Thank you to all of the people there that made it possible.

    Cons

    Apparently ad-tech was a dog-shit product because consumers were completely unable to differentiate hype from science - also, some of our competitors had a better program with publishers, which is a game with apparently chose not to play. (dumb).

    Advice to Management

    George, Abhinav, Richard, you guys did a great job and provided all of us with the best experiences of our lives. If you do it again, please hire us back, because that was super fun.

    Site Reliability Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Rocket Fuel (Redwood City, CA (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Two over the phone interviews, then followed by an on-site. Location isn't that great, out in the mines. Stock isn't doing great in mid-2017. Interviews didn't convey great culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard system inspections questions, i.e. how would you go about determining the root cause of a problem?   Answer Question
    • What is the difference between resident vs virtual memory?   Answer Question
    • Write code to determine the union, intersection, and difference of two sets?   Answer Question
