One Simple Idea: The Power of Personal

So, what is The power of personal? At the very core, it’s the power of making personal connections between brands and people. It's the ability for a brand to engage in a dialogue with a consumer to drive purchases, establish trust and build brand loyalty. It's the power of getting to know a consumer as an individual and conversing with them in a way that genuinely delights them.

And it all starts with data. Through our proprietary Conversant Personalization Platform we make the data matter, using it to empower that magical moment when a consumer sees exactly what they’re looking for, at the right time and on the right device. We defeat consumer indifference and incite action by hitting someone’s "sweet spot" with a personalized communication that is truly meaningful to them.

Delight Through True Personalization

You can’t delight people with mass targeting and messaging. You need to be far more intelligent with your marketing to make an impact at the individual level. It takes a lot of expertise and technology to create personalized marketing programs that increase relevance for every person in a brand’s target audience. That’s what we're all about! If you’re not working with us, it’s time we started the conversation. 

Conversant enables every angle and nuance of delivering a personalized digital experience. Every month, we partner with more than 5,000 companies to individualize their communications, inspire consumers to engage and crush performance goals. So, if you’re not working with us, don’t you think it’s time we started a conversation?

Analytics at Conversant is composed of 4 distinct groups that work cross functionally:

  • Account Analytics
  • Analytics Operations
  • Business Intelligence
  • Decision Sciences

The teams work with cutting edge technology, including Spark, Hadoop, and Greenplum MPP databases, to mine insights and build models from very large proprietary data sets in the multi-petabyte range. These teams are leaders in online CRM, optimization, and measurement, which makes Conversant a first choice employer for Analytics professionals. 

We may be the most important Internet company you've never heard of.


We’ve revolutionized the way that brands connect with consumers, through highly personalized digital advertising. Our clients have meaningful, one-to-one conversations with hundreds of millions, driving an average 10x incremental return on ad spend.


Our massive digital reach, across display, mobile and video channels, is on par with Google. And our millions of consumer profiles—built across 7,000+ dimensions—are the industry’s most exhaustive.


We're one of the country’s top three ad networks, reaching nearly 85% of all Internet users monthly. More than half of the top 500 Internet retailers rely on us to drive a combined 102 million purchases every day.


The opportunity to collaborate, innovate and automate happens here every day. We’re a big company with a startup mentality, and everything you do will make a difference. You’ll grow personally and professionally, using state-of-the-art technologies. You’ll be busy writing code and engineering solutions that have an immediate impact—and you’ll have fun, too.


We push the envelope in high-performance computing at massive scale, and the engineering challenges are extraordinary. For instance:

  • The systems we build handle more requests per second than there are cat videos on the Internet.
  • Our systems process enough anonymized data daily to fill a stack of DVDs taller than the Willis Tower.
  • From transcontinental distributed systems and low-latency HTTP to groundbreaking machine learning, some of the biggest problems in computer science are being solved right here.

    Negative Experience


    I applied online. I interviewed at Conversant.


    After applying to the position online, I got a call later that day from the recruiter. He set up a time for a phone interview the next week. He also said he'd send me an email to confirm and verified my email address with me.

    I never got the email. And when the time came for our phone interview, I never got a call. I called him back at the number he originally called me from and left him a voicemail, asking if there had been a miscommunication. No response.
