 Amobee uses the most advanced technology and analytics to help empower Marketers to make smarter decisions. Our technology platform enables marketers to plan and activate cross channel, programmatic media campaigns using real-time market research, proprietary audience data, advanced analytics, and more.   

Our engineering team works at the intersection of marketing, data and the rapidly changing and emerging consumer touch points - mobile, social, programmatic, IOT.      

Amobee, which is wholly owned by leading telecommunications company Singtel, believes that telcos are central to this evolution.    

Amobee’s parent company, Singtel, brings a wealth of operator assets with access to over 640 million mobile subscribers across the globe, providing a huge opportunity to bring better understanding and efficiency to this changing marketplace. Telcos have paid relationships with customers. That’s a big differentiator versus web-based companies.  

Shouvick Mukherjee – CTO:“Amobee has historically played a significant role in innovation in advertising technology, having delivered one of the first programmatic advertisements ever (via Turn Platform, the acquisition that closed in April 2017), and has a large pool of highly talented engineers around the globe. With access to Singtel Group’s expansive global footprint, Amobee has the resources to understand the consumer like ever before and create real innovation in the areas of digital marketing, on and off-domain personalization, market research and analytics.”   

Yu Jia – Technical Solutions Engineer:“Upon becoming a part of the Amobee team, I was challenged to solve difficult technical problems for an industry I knew little about. Now that I’m up to speed with the digital marketing industry, I’m able to work independently on various projects. I never thought I would be able to learn system design, the basics of distributed systems, and many other technologies in such a quick span of time. The digital marketing field is a constantly changing and rapidly growing industry and the cutting-edge technologies that we consistently adapt to never fail to appeal to my geeky side.”

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amobee (Redwood City, CA) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Bad experience.
    Questions were nothing out of the ordinary but interviewers were rude, poorly coordinated and just following a script. One interview was very awkward because the interviewer could barely speak english so I had to keep asking him to repeat the questions. By far one for the record books.
