Adknowledge – Why Work For Us?

Here’s what gets us out of bed in the morning: using data to improve our clients’ ROI. That can mean shaving a millisecond from response time; optimizing a campaign to further refine targeting; conferring with a client to map out strategy for reaching new audiences; tweaking creatives to better catch a user’s attention or designing a new algorithm to drive customers.

Adknowledge is the kind of place that never rests on satisfaction. Just when we think we’ve gotten something perfect, it’s time to take another look to find out how we can make it even better. We love iterating!

Since our start in 2004, Adknowledge has grown organically and through acquisitions. This includes the 2011 purchase of AdParlor, a leading social marketing platform and one of the first Facebook Strategic Preferred Marketing Developers. Adparlor is also a Twitter Marketing Platform Partner. Adknowledge also acquired Giant Media and TriVu Media—both digital video advertising products—in 2014.

Our corporate headquarters are in Kansas City, Missouri; we have North American offices in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit, Fort Myers and Toronto. There are overseas locations in London, Paris, Munich, São Paulo and Singapore.

So who makes the cut at Adknowledge? Intelligent, driven people who enjoy innovating in a tech-driven culture. Admittedly, we’re not a 9-to-5 operation but we have a lot of fun when we’re here. Sound like a good fit for you?

    I have been working at Adknowledge full-time


    The online advertising business is always changing. This company is consistently looking for ways over under and through the challenges that arise on a regular basis. It has a diverse business model in multiple segments of the industry. There are consistent promotions within the organization and transferring employees between teams to focus on priorities for those who are good at what they do. Alot of people have bonus opportunity directly tied to the performance of the business and managers can change targets as the business changes. If the company goals are missed, you can still earn a bonus awarded by your manager if you are awesome at what you accomplished so you are not penalized. There is always too much to do and I like how the company has made it so you can hold yourself accountable for your own balance when it comes to your personal life and still be successful. We have flexibility in time-off, we have great technology to do our job on the fly, and we have quite a few activities during the work days to give us mental breaks. Everyone contributes and has the opportunity to affect the business, I love that is is a place where "that's not my job" or "there's nothing I can do" is not part of our makeup.


    The cons are more about what works for you. If you want an 9-5 job where it doesn't push you, this place is not it. If you are not comfortable with change, then this isn't it. If you need a place where you have a identified career ladder, then ADK is not right and probably never will be because all the teams I know are small. I believe the reason for this is to give the ability for everyone to make an impact and people are not in a silo of only being allowed to do one thing. If you like clearly defined paths and processes, this is the downside to a consistently changing business and strategy, it won't happen. You have to be flexible, driven, enjoy making decisions and offering impact on a daily basis... there is no room for phoning it in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has greatly improved in promoting their people however the downside to this is training new managers. There are a lot who can use this and should be required to complete. Also the downside to multiple business and changing strategies, is some times there is a lack of continuity and communication. Communicate what is driving changes, talk about the challenges or the bad so your people can understand why certain decisions are made. Yes it may create a short time negative result however your good employees will step up and help move beyond it.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with the hiring manager in May and the interview went very well. I was asked to come back for a second interview with the CEO and it seemed like his goal was to trip me up, ask a question that I couldn't possibly know the answer to.
