  • Excellent at giving and receiving feedback from others
  • Promotes a collaborative and humble working culture


Here's what we'll offer you:

  • The opportunity to invent the future of marketing and advertising tech while growing your skills in multiple areas, with the aim of eventually specializing in the area you love the most
  • We are growing. Fast. And you will be on the the ground floor. If you're an amazing teammate, opportunities for growth are endless
  • Competitive compensation and benefits, including health, dental, and 401K
  • A work experience that is fulfilling, challenging, and provides a sense of adventure
  • An incredible team of hackers and hustlers that care about your success

  • Daily lunch from local restaurants and monthly team-building hangouts, like karaoke, ping pong, foosball, and more :)
