I worked at Smart AdServer full-time (More than a year)
Great place to start working on Advertising and Ad-tech. Fast pace company to catch the market continuously. Possibility to dive into any latest technology.
Still struggling to establish a strong market out of France especially the American market.
Advice to Management
Give more opportunities and appreciate the good work.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Smart AdServer (Paris (France)) in September 2019.
I applied on linkedin, and I spoke with HR on the phone, and then had an in-person interview with the hiring manager. The experience with HR was great.
The meeting with the hiring manager was a complete waste of my time. They were clearly not interested in my skill set, so I don't know why they asked me to come in, as they told me that the other candidates had more experience in this industry. It felt like a "tech boy's club" that was not very open to diverse profiles outside of their direct industry. I was casually insulted when the hiring manager alluded to the fact that maybe I wouldn't be smart enough to be able to speak and understand their developers "who went to the best engineering schools in France" . I was convinced that the interview was going nowhere after about 10 minutes, but at the end of the interview an hour later, the hiring manager said I could review their current solution and give feedback about their tutorials the following week. I felt a little uncomfortable that he gave me his personal and not professional email address. I politely followed up a few days later to say I was not interested in pursuing the process.
It was however interesting to learn about this industry.
