MathWorks – Why Work With Us?


Every member of the MathWorks team, from our finance department to our developers, contributes to delivering the software that impacts the things we all rely on in our daily lives. Think we’re exaggerating? Think again. Look behind your cell phone, your car, the plane you fly on, the cutting edge medical technologies that could save and change lives, and the scientific advances that awe and amaze us, and you’ll find MATLAB and Simulink. Our customers are advancing the world’s knowledge of engineering and science, and we help them do it. That’s a special team to be a part of. 

What’s daily life like as a MathWorks employee? Innovative. Challenging. Collegial. Energized. An atmosphere built on respect for colleagues and continuous pursuit of excellence. 

But we don’t always work. We eat, like on Wednesday mornings at our weekly breakfast buffet or on Friday afternoons, when fresh-baked cookies are delivered to every kitchen at our Natick campus. We welcome new MathWorkers with a party affectionately called a "Tuesday," even if it takes place on a Thursday. And to work off the effects of all that eating, there is an on-campus fitness center and numerous recreational sports teams.

Mission and Core Values

Our guiding principle is "Do the Right Thing." This means doing what is best for our staff members, customers, business partners, and communities for the long term, and believing that "right" answers exist. It also means measuring our success, not merely in financial terms, but by how consistently we act according to this principle.

Credibility and Integrity

We conduct ourselves with uncompromising integrity and honesty as individuals, as teams, and as a company. We strive to earn enduring credibility with others, which we believe is essential to long-term personal and business relationships.

    I have been working at MathWorks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Good benefits including health insurance, gym membership, etc
    2. Competitive salary in the Boston area
    3. Good company location with nice buildings and facilities
    4. Lovely onsite cafeteria

    Cons

    1. Technology mostly internal and different from "industry norms", and might take a while for new employees to get familiar with

    Advice to Management

    I have an awesome manager who really cares about my growth. Overall I'd say the company management is very well balanced, not too much and not too little. Maybe it'll be nice if the management can help speed up the progress of updating some technology used at the company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at MathWorks.

    Interview

    The interview process is efficient and considerate. Firstly, there was a digital interview powered by HireVue. I was asked to record a video response to share more about your interest and background. I had the chance to practice before my recording, and there were two trials during the formal recording. Secondly, I got an OA powered by HackerRank. The instructions were clear, the remaining time alert was striking , and problem descriptions were straightforward. Thridly, after just one day, I got the invitation to schedule an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Do you think you are a good fit for the EDG internship?
      2. One of your important experience, and why important?
      3. Why interested in MATLAB   Answer Question
