Mediaocean products power the world’s advertising. And it’s Mediaocean’s employees that power Mediaocean. Browse below to see what roles people play at Mediaocean—and which might be the best fit for you.


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’s Marketing team lets the global media community, internal teams, and the business world at large understand the value that Mediaocean offers. From driving stunning visual design for our products to getting the word out in the press to working cross-departmentally to drive the latest product and feature releases to our end users, Marketing ensures that our brand is simple to understand, in sync with demand, and top-of-mind in the marketplace.


Project Managers translate Mediaocean’s product vision into the software that transforms our clients’ work. They serve as the bridge across senior management, account teams, developers and clients—tackling any engineering or resource challenge along the way, and, quite simply, making things happen. Mediaocean’s Project Managers are the driving force behind our speed to market.


The Human Resources team’s goal is simple: hire the brightest minds to bring Mediaocean’s vision to life—and give them a great place to work. From recruiting and on-boarding the right candidates, to managing employee wellness, to fostering training organization-wide, the global HR team combines people skills and the understanding of Mediaocean’s products to transform the workplace into a culture—and each job into a path to growth.


To power the world’s advertising, Mediaocean needs a solid infrastructure to make sure we’re strong from the inside out. From servers to monitoring to backups, our infrastructure teams ensure that our products operate reliably; that internal applications and tools work smoothly; and that we have the backend at the ready to deploy the best software today, and tomorrow.


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.


Mediaocean powers advertising, and the facilities teams create the workplace where that happens—from helping make our space comfortable, to keeping the lights on. From space planning and environmental design to construction, maintenance and safety, they oversee our 11 locations spanning three continents where nearly 1,000 employees, contractors, and guests pass through each day.



At Mediaocean, we believe passion drives success. We care deeply about our work and helping our clients with the challenges they face. Our passion inspires us and moves us to pursue excellence in everything we do.


We have offices around the globe, and many diverse roles. But we're one company with one shared vision. We strive to help each other perform our best by listening to ideas and supporting each other. We win as one. You're more than a team member. You are Mediaocean.


In a complex, evolving industry, innovators are the ones who succeed. That's why we're hyper-focused on powering the future of advertising. We serve today's needs and tomorrow's demands by developing creative strategies and groundbreaking executions.


Focusing on clients above all else guides everything we create and deliver. We're open and cooperative, both internally and with clients and partners, to ensure that every experience is the best it can be. Our openness extends to our products and services, so we design them to be simple and effective. That empowers our clients to be efficient, reliable, and limitless - improving their workflow and driving their success.


Success requires calculated risks. So we think outside the box and take leaps into the unknown. When risks don't work out, we correct our mistakes and turn challenges into opportunities. When risks succeed, we take Mediaocean to the next level.


Mediaocean is part of a global community employees, clients, partners, and philanthropy. From corporate giving to employee community outreach, the heart of our brand strives for positive change.


We're here to unleash the potential of global advertising - and to have a great time while doing it.

  • Team outings – We don’t like to brag much, but we encourage bonding with your co-workers, sharing your thoughts and ideas and really just having some fun with your team.
  • What's a Flying Bearshark? – Why it's the body of a bear, with the head of a shark, and the wings of an eagle! It's also one of our company softball teams. We happened to win a Summer and Fall championship in 2014, but again, we don't like to brag.


  • Executive outing – Think out of the box with the execs and be part of strategic discussions which include setting goals and having some fun at an off-site location.

We give employees time off to do good with their charity of choice or they can participate in organized events.  We run quarterly blood drives in our offices, annual coat drives, food drives to support our local communities and MOvember (the one time a man can grow a crazy stache for a good cause).  Some examples of our organized opportunities include teams that volunteer at local soup kitchens and each summer in NY we travel to the beach to support Wheels2Water where we take individuals coping with recent paralysis into the ocean to surf! Not a bad way to spend a hot July day. Whatever the event is, it is always rewarding.

  • Brand Value Awards – Get recognized for your Unity, Passion, Innovation, User Focus, Giving back, and receive $100 gift card... This does not include singing.

    I have been working at Mediaocean full-time (More than 5 years)


    Mediaocean begins and ends with people - I work with people that I want to be around day in and day out. They are intelligent, driven and collaborative. It's a high energy environment and the dynamic media industry. The tone is set from at the executive level - an entrepreneurial spirit where we work hard and have fun. Goals and vision for the company are shared with all employees and notable happenings are communicated through e-mail, company wide meeting and weekly updates. There is a genuine effort to provide a positive working environment and perks to folks - a wellness series, yoga, zumba, perks program, company breakfasts and a perks program. New office space rocks!


    I have no cons to report.

    Advice to Management

    Folks really appreciate the open line of communication on company initiatives, goals and news via all hands and updates and the management team's presence in the office. Keep it up!

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Mediaocean (New York, NY).


    Applied through LinkedIn. Got a call from recruiter in a day, then scheduled a technical phone interview about 3-4 days later. It covered basic java questions (Just google top java interview questions and read those). Then got an invite to the Manhattan Office for an onsite interview. It involved a 1 hr test involving general java coding, then a technical interview involving basic java and sql fundamentals. Then met the director and discussed the position and work the team was into. Got the offer next day. In all a very cool and calm interview process, I particularly enjoyed it.
