Rocket Fuel | Web Application Developer| Redwood City, CA | Fulltime | Onsite| VISA We successfully hired a junior developer through HN last month and we are now looking to fill positions for a mid to senior level engineer.

I work for the Applications team and our team builds the web app responsible for managing the ad campaigns and providing the interfaces for the work built by the rest of the engineering teams.

Our work also includes building CRUD, tools for data visualization and analysis, API design and many other things that comes with building a complex web application. You will also get exposure to the work done by other teams. Competitive salary package and benefits, great workspace and fun teammates.

Shitty company. I've spent 4 hours on-site (+ ~3 over the phone) and never heard back from recruiter. Nothing! Also, was very disappointed about technical level of interviewers. And look at their 5-year stock (google "rocket fuel stock") - this is the reason why you DO NOT wanna go there.

I went through many interviews with Rocket Fuel. I did one 8 hour take-home project, probably about 5 phone interviews and the whole day on-site. It didn't seem like the recruiter was going to call me back either, but thankfully I followed up with him. They didn't give me any real feedback as why I wasn't getting the position, so that was disappointing.

That being said, I thought the interviewers were very pleasant to meet and talk to. If I had to give feedback to Rocket Fuel, I'd say that they need to streamline their interview process (several unexpected interviews happened in my case). Also, more feedback should be given to the interviewee, especially after such a long process.
