    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Applift (San Francisco, CA (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process took extremely long - ranging around 4-5 weeks. They thought they were on the same caliber as Google - providing potential employees with entrance exams to see if they had what it takes in terms of experience (a joke once you learn about the real company and ppl that make it up - in SF)

    Junior Campaign Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Applift in May 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume on their website and received an email 2 days later for a Skype interview.

    1) My interviewer wasn't able to get to my email in time confirming the interview, so I waited an hour for him on Skype. I called the local office because it turns out that the interviewer was from Berlin. We rescheduled the Skype video interview for the next day.
    He was very amiable and asked me to explain my resume/ past experience, what brought me to be interested in AppLift, what interested me about the position, and how I thought my past experience related to the job. He also asked me questions about how I thought the role fit into their system (vertical vs. horizontal organization). Though I was wrong, he explained the position thoroughly. He told me that a three hour skills assessment would follow and I needed to email him to coordinate.
    2) The skills assessment was pretty daunting. It had both analytical questions (response in words) and math problems that I had not encountered before (this is mobile advertising math, such as eCPM). It also had vague questions (I wasn't sure if he wanted just a word explanation or if he wanted numbers too for some questions, etc.) I emailed him the assessment once I finished and he told me I would have a Skype interview with other members of the team.
    3) Out of the three people I was supposed to speak with, I was only able to speak with two since the last man was very busy (and would need to reschedule). The first was with the Team Lead, and it was very intimidating because he asked me situational and technical questions that were related to the position and industry (which I've had no previous experience in; though I prepped, he asked very detailed and thorough questions, like calculations from the skills assessment). The second interviewer asked the general situational questions (i.e. how do you work in a group setting, etc.) and some questions specific to the position, but not like the first interviewer. Both were Skype voice calls since the first interviewer is from Berlin, but the second interviewer was from the local office.
    4) After a couple of days, or perhaps a week, I received an email that I did not get to move on further in the process.
    My overall impression is that the skills assessment was difficult since I had not encountered the type of math before. Though I looked up formulas, I wasn't comfortable with my work. The interviewers were fine, though you could clearly tell when your answer wasn't satisfactory. I think another reason why I think the process was somewhat difficult was asking me detailed technical questions in a position I did not have experience in or exposure to before ( I was surprised how detailed the questions were because this was an entry level position and they knew I had no exposure in the environment).

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Applift (Berlin (Germany)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    four rounds: online call, in-office interview with a team member, team lead, and VP separately... the in-office interviews were a bit tiring because questions are almost the same.
    in general, questions are easy, but I was too nervous.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applift (Berlin (Germany)) in July 2019.

    Well organized interview process with smart and interesting people. Best expirience so far. Discussions were about my motivation, capabilities, way of thinking and personality. On top of that interview process was really smooth and you are able to ask your questions through the whole interview, so its more like a dialogue rather than Q&A session.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Applift (Berlin (Germany)) in November 2018.

    The interview process was smooth. I had initially a phone interview with HR and then an SQL test followed which I had to submit via email within a day. Soon, I was invited to the office for 2 interviews; one with the Team Lead and one with two members of the team. After a couple of days, I was invited for a final interview with the department director. In all cases, the atmosphere was friendly/relaxed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Applift (Berlin (Germany)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I first had to do a 30 min HR phone interview which went fine. I then completed an SQL test which involved 5 questions. I found the test fairly easy. The final part was a face to face interview. The face interview involved meeting the team lead who seemed to make up some of the questions on the spot. He also made me made do SQL queries which on a white which was a little frustrating. I found out the following day that i was unsuccessful. I emailed the HR person to ask for some more detailed feedback but she couldn't be bothered to reply.
