Turn – Why Work For Us?


Turn has been transforming the way Fortune 1000 marketers and their agencies make decisions for over a decade. An early pioneer of data-driven advertising, having delivered one of the industry’s first programmatic ad impressions in June 2009. 

Turn is a recognized leader in platform-based video, mobile, display, and TV advertising, our lightning-fast technology responds in less than 10 milliseconds to 4.3 billion addressable device and browser IDs worldwide. We're looking for people who are passionate about computational advertising, big data and analytics to join us. 

We’re looking for innovative and passionate people who want to change the world of advertising forever. Are you an expert in big data and algorithms? Internet-scale systems? Does being part of a high-growth Silicon Valley startup get you excited? Join our team.



A full package of benefits allows Turn employees to reach their full potential. You’ll enjoy best-in-class insurance plans, generous time-off programs, fitness memberships, creative office spaces, and family-friendly policies that help you achieve work-life balance.


At Turn, we’re interested in developing leaders that will change the face of the industry. To support our regular promotion schedule, we offer management courses from U.C. Berkeley and NYU, as well as employee development sessions hosted by leadership experts.


Turn empowers employees to take care of the communities where we operate. We support time-off for volunteering, match your contributions to your favorite non-profits, mandate recycling in all offices, and offer incentives for using public transport.


Our company is made up of people who come to work every day relentlessly pursuing truth on behalf of our customers.

  • We are curious. We like to learn and dive into challenges, especially the hard ones. 
  • We are humble. We show mutual respect and generous spirit towards one another—ego is not our objective. 
  • We are tenacious. We don't give up and failure does not stop us from the desire for high achievement.
  • We are candid. We strive to be unequivocally clear and honest based on integrity in all situations.

    I have been working at Turn full-time


    Turn is a great place to exponentially increase your technical skills. You will never feel like you are stagnating. The employees and managers at Turn are extremely intelligent, humble, and a pleasure to work with. Bruce, the new CEO, has brought a lot of positive changes to improve the health of the business as well as the culture.


    Turn is a late stage startup and has trouble retaining valuable superstar and experienced employees who leave to join larger companies (Facebook in particular). This is a difficult problem to solve when you are a cash strapped company.

    Analytics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Turn (New York, NY) in January 2017.


    HR is the MOST disorganized ever - kept rescheduling, didn't tell me when hiring manager is going to call, did not follow up after on site interview - have to call and get them to work so that they can give you a final answer. This is quite disrespectful.
    The role is analytics and client-facing yet none of the people in the on site interview asked me a single analytics/SQL/technical question.
