Mission: The online marketing industry develops at warp speed. Facebook alone is constantly pushing out new ad formats, targeting techniques and optimization tactics.
There’s a severe lack of talent in the market. Advertisers are struggling to recruit and ...
I have been working at Smartly.io full-time (Less than a year)
Just recently started but everything has been very smooth. Onboarding preparation, materials, sessions and even getting work devices have been very thorough.
Lots of new opportunities, and had a bit of a culture shock given how open the environment is for new ideas and suggestions.
Lots of in-office and out-of-office events as well, which has made settling in extremely easy.
Everyone is very technically knowledgable and so may be a bit more challenging for non-tech backgrounds to adapt.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Smartly.io (New York, NY (US)).
The interview process, as most others have noted, is broken down into a few main phases:
In the first phase, you have a general discussion surrounding your experience, interest in the role, and other high-level aspects of the company and yourself. If you pass this phase, they send you a homework assignment that consists of analyzing some spreadsheets and responding to questions given a fake company's situation.
If you pass the homework assignment, you are then invited to the second phase, which consists of somewhat in-depth interviewing on Facebook's auctioning systems and other aspects of Facebook's advertising platforms.
If you pass the Facebook concepts interview, you are then given access to the company's platform, and must perform a sales demo where you convince a 'client' to use the product.
Assuming you pass the sales demo, you meet with other 'higher-up' people in the company to assess culture fit.
This interview process is intense, but effective. When all was said and done, I spent about 6 weeks interviewing with Smartly. They have a high level of expectation at each phase of the interview process, so its important to take it seriously.
The way to differentiate yourself in the online marketing industry is to combine technical expertise with substantial customer experience. Technical Account Managers are doing just that at Smartly.io.
