Criteo – Why Work For Us?


We are a global community, united by our contagious energy and hunger for performance. We are challengers, go (Go, GO)-getters, innovators, makers, logicians, and technical magicians. We dissect, debate, and deliberate, dreaming big and aiming high.

Belonging to Criteo means having the freedom to drive your ideas. Taking risks, moving quickly, and enjoying every moment. When you combine our computational power and unparalleled datasets with the intelligence of our people, anything is possible. 

From our entrepreneurial beginnings to the success we share today, it’s been a journey of global proportions. But through it all Criteo wouldn’t be the company it is today without the amazing people behind it.

We create impact at scale

We serve 5 billion ads a day. That’s about 4 million requests per second. We push the limits of deep learning and AI. And we don’t plan on slowing down. From intern to engineer, our people make a real impact. As a collective, we are hungry to succeed and push each other to be the best. Sure, it’s a LOT of hard work, but it’s also incredibly rewarding.

We go, Go, GO

We are all about moving quickly, innovating constantly and delivering real change. Here you can take every opportunity and run with it. It’s your chance to drive your ideas and have the freedom to make them happen. In return, we expect you to be all in.

We connect through playful energy

Our best perk is amazing people. While we take our work seriously, we love to have fun and laugh along the way. Every office is filled with equal measures of hard work and playful energy. From yoga to rooftop parties, early morning kale smoothies to late night karaoke sessions – we do it all, together. 

Be part of something big. 600 TB of daily shopper data big. 

We’re a company that’s sharply aware our world is primarily driven by technology. At Criteo we face some of the most challenging, but interesting problems in the tech industry. We work at a scale of speed, performance and complexity that few others in the industry can compete with. Every day is different and we’re proud to make it a culture that always challenges your skills.

Our R&D Culture

Empowerment: We believe in hiring the best engineers in the industry and then letting them get on with what they do best – designing, coding and releasing state of the art software.

Mobility: In our Voyager program our engineers get to pick which team they want to work on for 2-4 weeks, boosting collaboration, networking and maybe even leading to switching teams.

Agility: We work in a fast pace environment where we build and release stuff frequently to deliver value soon and adapt to changes quickly.

Variety: We have many ways to get your code to production including our Hackathon, 10% projects, Voyager and more.

Multicultural: You will work with diverse perspectives, alongside global team players and some of the brightest minds in the industry

    Associate Account Strategist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (New York, NY) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I first had an initial screening with a recruiter. After a 30 minute call discussing my background and my interest in the position, she said she would set up an in-person interview with the team. I was invited into the office to speak with a few of the team members and then a week later was invited back for a final round with the hiring manager and director.
