Take a step into our office — you’ll find someone riding a razor scooter from the kitchen to their desk, a couple of people playing Settlers of Catan, and a few employees chatting in the kitchen about how much they are looking forward to our upcoming company camping trip. You’ll also find the Business Development team in a strategy meeting, the Engineering team huddled around whiteboards or hundreds of lines deep into Sublime Text, and the Product Implementation team working through client data flow documentation. LiveRampers know how to get their work done while also having a great time in each others company.
The people that we bring into our organization shape our culture, and LiveRamp’s culture is one-of-a-kind. The products we build are top-tier and the people who create those products are also extraordinary. The talent we hire directly contributes to LiveRamp’s awesome culture and quality of products. Therefore, our interview process is necessarily rigorous and selective. To better understand, let’s dig a little deeper into our recruiting process, specifically our approach to engineering.
Engineers eager to join our team have big shoes to fill. LiveRamp prides itself on intelligence, humbleness, and independence; we weigh culture fit heavily and seek hires that embody all of these traits.
For junior engineers, we begin with an assessment of an applicant’s technical skillset and general interest in LiveRamp. This is then followed by two conversations with experienced engineers. From this process we are able to assess problem solving skills, technical capability and overall communication. Sometimes, we’ll ask logic-based questions. By whiteboarding an applicant’s’ thought process to answering these questions, we’re able to gauge their learning style and critical thinking abilities. Technically, LiveRamp tests candidates with a language-agnostic, algorithmic-centric approach. By doing so, all candidates are evaluated equally and there is less room for bias towards language background. Clear, concise and well thought-out communication (written and verbal) is what brings the whole package together.
As a last step, an applicant will visit our brand new, beautiful office in downtown San Francisco for a series of interviews with peers and executives. By using an extended, in-depth version of the same criteria laid out above, we’re able gauge whether or not LiveRamp is a good fit.
LiveRamp is hiring aggressively and plans to grow our team rapidly. As a result of the process just described, we have added 97 talented people to our team (15 of which were interns!) in the past 12 months. LiveRamp has plans to grow our team to over 200 employees over the next year.
