Undertone – Why Work For Us?

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.

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.

PLATFORMS

With 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.

Tech_0000_Targeting-and-measurement
 
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 for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing company culture. Work hard/play hard mentality is a perfect balance. People are extremely hard-working, but enjoy the work, and always with a smile on their faces. Super smart colleagues that are always challenging themselves and continually learning. Company appreciates hard work by promoting from within. Folks really take pride in working at Undertone and it shows in their passion for the brand. The company also has a great reputation in the industry and I can easily see why it has consistently won awards for being a 'Best Company to Work for'.

    Cons

    There are not many downsides to working at Undertone. The base hours are a bit longer than most companies and they don't match employee 401K contributions, but they make up for these in other ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the 'play hard' part of the 'work hard/play hard' mentality so that employees continue to enjoy coming to work every day; without it, you risk employees getting 'burnt out'. Consider matching employee 401K contributions.
