Digital ads power the Internet economy.
It's time to make them better.
Come here to change advertising forever.

Why work on digital advertising?

Advertising is one of the hardest problems in the modern economy.

Many of our favorite Internet sites and television shows depend on advertising revenue, from Facebook to Mad Men. Yet, in spite of the hundreds of billions spent annually worldwide and the tens of billions spent in the US digital advertising market alone, effective advertising is largely an unsolved problem.

It’s a matter of finding the perfect balance between consumer attention and advertisers’ goals, which has largely been elusive to date. This magic equilibrium is a highly technical and artistic problem at a massive scale, since billions of pieces of content and daily viewed ads require a rare combination of skill sets and capabilities that most organizations lack.
