Amobee is about connection. Connection to each other, connection to clients and connection to the community.
We believe every employee has the ability to change the way we do things and we expect it to further the evolution of not only what we are but what we could be. We are the called the A team because we hit the ground running every day with the goal of being better than we were the day before.
Amobee culture is the culmination of every personality, every strength and every quirk of every employee. Each employee brings their own personality to the table and changes the scope and shape of the existing culture in a slight but significant way.
The evolution of company and culture is constant, but the core values and purpose remain strong and rooted as the foundation on which culture thrives: we exist to build lifelong relationships with employees, provide our clients the ability to build lifelong relationships with their customers and enable our team to contribute and build lifelong relationships with the local community and environment.
When you join our team, your life will change. You will meet people that will impact your life, you will have experiences you never dreamed of and you will experience an opportunity of a lifetime.
We have the right people, we are in the right place, and now is the time. Are you in?

I worked at Amobee full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
I worked at Amobee (and previously Adconion Direct until they were acquired by Amobee) for more than 3 years in the San Diego office. My thoughts below:
-Absolutely fantastic people. Everybody is really cool, laid-back, and hardworking. This is not a 9-5 company (few jobs in this industry are), but given how hard everybody is working there is remarkably little tension and bitterness. Workforce is generally very young and and the majority of people are friends with each-other, not just co-workers. Company deserves credit for hiring many people right out of college, something more companies should do
-Lots of fun social events and mixers. Excellent health insurance benefits.
-Causal work environment
-Exciting industry characterized by rapid change
-Pay is decent, but not spectacular. Salaries will be lower than positions at comparable companies in SF or NYC, but this can be chalked up to broader macroeconomic conditions pushing up salaries in those cities
-Acquisition has injected much needed resources and capitalCons
-I believe this is starting to change with the acquisition, but prior there was very little transparency from management about how the company is doing and poor articulation of the long-term strategic vision from a tactical standpoint.
-While company culture is great, occasionally management is so over the top in highlighting the positives while ignoring the negatives that it becomes almost farcical
-Managers are inexperienced (although still cool people in general)
-Poor training programs and skill development on a company and team level
-Despite being in the tech industry, the company has a much stronger sales culture than a tech culture. The company struggles mightily from a technical and engineering perspective and by trying to offer so many products and channels may be stretching itself too thin, especially from a technology perspective. While some of the technology being pitched is real, some of it is smoke and mirrorsAdvice to ManagementAdvice
-Become more transparent with your employees. Be much more detailed and descriptive about the specific challenges the company is facing and the plan to tackle them. The inspiring rhetoric about passion and resilience is great, but it needs to be paired with concrete detail otherwise it rings hollow
-Invest much more heavily in technology and engineeringRecommendsNeutral Outlook

- Application Details
I applied online – interviewed at Amobee.Interview Details
Emailed by HR, got 30 min phone int with hiring mgr. Starts off odd: hiring mgr is unfocused, sounds bored & talks down to me. Says PMs are "usually in-house" strongly implying my contracting experience is invalid. Wants a candidate who is program/product/project/business analyst all in one. Seems to think that is typical of position. Its not. Worst still, hiring mgr didn't have the guts to tell me over the phone she didn't think I was a fit tho it was really clear neither one of us thought this was. She had HR send email 1 hour after interview say just that. Not very professional.Interview Questions
