Bridge the business and technical worlds as a problem-solver. Product managers work closely with clients and developers to understand what the market needs—and to turn those needs into products that impact our users’ lives. Product managers combine a deep understanding of the client business, a mastery of software, and the people and leadership skills to get it all done.


Our developers bring an array of technical skills and engineering capabilities to turn product concepts into powerful solutions. They work with teams across the organization and across the development cycle—from initial coding, to QA and troubleshooting, to deployment. They’re not afraid to iterate quickly, they live to code—and they build great products.


Mediaocean is dedicated to giving all our 80,000+ users the most seamless experience possible. The QA teams are the perfectionists that ensure that the product experience is seamless. They’re passionate about code, are creative in how they test, and won’t relax until they know we’re delivering the best products the industry has to offer.


Our account managers identify and implement the solutions that help their business thrive. They combine a passion for improving the advertising world, a strong understanding of our product suite and of the agency business, and the creative problem-solving to turn agency needs into deep, mutually beneficial relationships for the long-term.


Mediaocean support specialists make our products work better for our clients—guiding users through subtle points of our software that may not be obvious at first, and working with the Product, Development, and Marketing teams as the front lines in solving problems that emerge, and delivering a better product with each release.


The Training team gives our users the knowledge to unleash the potential of Mediaocean platforms. Through expert classroom training, on-site support, e-learning, and more, Training combines a mastery of teaching and design with a deep knowledge of our software and our clients’ work to help Mediaocean’s global users get the most from the platforms we deliver.

Mediaocean software helps our clients run their finances effectively and efficiently. Our Finance team does the same for Mediaocean. From managing company investments and financial strategies to controlling expenses and costs. Finance is at the heart of making sure our company isn’t just great—it’s profitable. And, of course, Finance only becomes more critical as our company heads into new stages of growth.

    Later on, they called me for an In-Person Interview.

    Upon your arrival, HR will meet and asks you to take a test which is for 30 minutes. Test contains 7 questions and for 25 points. Six questions are on Java and One is for a SQL query (group by - having). Java questions are to optimize the code and to find errors.

    After the test, I had to meet 3 people for 30 minutes each. It was technical, mostly on the recent projects/experience.
