When you see an ad online that pushes you to the store, chances are we put it there.
From the beginning, MaxPoint had a clear vision: to drive in-store sales for advertisers by helping them reach the right neighborhoods online for their local, regional, and national campaigns. We worked hard to develop advanced digital advertising technology—the kind that uses complex algorithms and the latest in real-time data to pinpoint and reach the consumers most likely to buy products.
Our results speak volumes—we have worked with each of the top 20 leading national advertisers as ranked by Advertising Age. And as one of the fastest-growing companies in North America, we remain committed to growing our team of digital advertising experts and to producing results for the biggest brands, retailers, and agencies across the globe.

I have been working at MaxPoint full-time
Sure, there are the technology start-up style perks: a fully stocked kitchen, free starbucks, relaxed atmosphere, beautiful work environment, etc. For me, though, the biggest benefit is working with so many crazy smart people. The work is incredibly challenging; we solve hard interesting problems and have broad latitude to figure out how to do it. There are no politics: if you have a good idea, you are encouraged and empowered to implement it. Also, the company grows incredibly fast. Every employee is an owner and you can see that generates camaraderie as people feel like that are working for each other. I've never worked somewhere with more teamwork than MaxPoint.
We work hard...you have to be able to find the right work-life balance on your own. Being a very successful start-up means you have more products to build and customers to help than time always allows. You need to be able to prioritize and walk away from your work when you need a break. People who are the most successful at MaxPoint have a good ability to compartmentalize and are conscious of setting boundaries that allow them to have balance. I've had small kids while at MaxPoint and have never had an issue. Also, success is often rewarded with substantial new responsibilities. Some people might misread this...there isn't room to hide. People who don't embrace this can have a hard time.
