ABOUT

Undertone has been at the forefront of digital advertising for over a decade. During that time, a lot has changed – we’ve seen the birth of social networking, the start of the smartphone and tablet revolution, and the launch of new programmatic solutions for transacting digital ad inventory. While the industry has evolved at a rapid rate, our mission has remained steadfast: we are focused on delivering standout digital advertising experiences for brands.

Today, delivering against this mission means operating at the intersection of mediacreative and technology. We have developed a suite of groundbreaking multi-screen creative formats for brands to leverage; we’ve formed deep partnerships with the world’s best digital media properties; and we have built technology platforms that underpin every aspect of campaign planning, delivery, optimization and measurement.

We support our employees through trainings both company-wide and more specific to your role.

TECHNOLOGY

Delivering Standout Brand Experiences requires the right blend of creative, media and technology. Our technology solutions enable us to reach the most receptive audiences; deliver campaigns seamlessly across screens; manage real-time optimization; and track every aspect of campaign delivery and the results achieved. Technology is nothing without people, which is why we have built a global team of data scientists and performance and insights specialists who touch every campaign that we execute for our advertisers. This hands-on approach not only maximizes campaign efficacy, but also ensures that we are constantly leveraging campaign data to tune and enhance our systems and tools.

Tech_0001_Platforms
 
PLATFORMS

With over 13 years of experience in digital advertising, we know where technology is needed to add value. We have developed proprietary platforms that manage every aspect of campaign planning, delivery, optimization and measurement. For Undertone, technology also underpins innovation through our Undertone Impact Accelerator™ framework, which enables us to rapidly prototype and deploy new cross-screen high impact formats.

TARGETING AND MEASUREMENT

Some vendors rely on the use of data to reach the right audiences; some rely on the quality of their inventory. At Undertone, we focus on both. We leverage first and third party data, along with a range of other signals, to reach audiences across our portfolio of the Web’s best digital media properties. We have also developed deep relationships with the industry’s leading measurement vendors to enable us to track and report on campaign reach and performance across every screen.

    I have been working at Undertone full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Undertone works to ensure it's client's needs are well protected, and that ethos resonates throughout everything the company does. While people may say "Standout Brand Experiences" is a tag line, the company's brand focuses on providing a platinum solution that cannot be tarnished.

    Cons

    The advertising world is always changing, and Undertone changes with it -- at times the pace is very frenetic, and can feel a little disjointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More frequent updates on company progress/status would provide better guidance on the current position of the company and any adjustments to the plans in place.

    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Undertone.

    Interview Details

    I had my first interview with HR, followed by two back-to-back phone interviews with the hiring manager and another team member, and a mini follow up with HR. The process concluded with an in-person presentation.

    I would recommend that HR pay more attention to their communication flow with candidates. In particular, follow up was quite inconsistent. I would be told that I'd hear from them on a certain day, but I would have to follow up multiple times after the date had passed to hear back from them. I would also suggest that they streamline their communications through one HR specialist. I had to setup my interviews with one HR member and had to talk to another one regarding actual interview questions. It was a bit confusing as to who I needed to go to or follow up with at times. Additionally, the usage of Jobvite is great, but sending communications to a candidate via Jobvite as well as via email can get confusing.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They weren't very flexible with negotiations. The first offer was pretty much the final offer.
