App Nexus: Open Communication, Flexibility And Diversity

Are you ready for the Berlin Tech Job Fair? Don’t forget to learn about the companies that join us in search of great tech talent. Let us introduce AppNexus a global internet technology company.

AppNexus operates the world’s largest independent marketplace for digital advertising and powerful enterprise technology for buyers and sellers of digital ads. Their mission is to create a better internet. It requires solving big, systemic problems with creativity and agility. The company does this by bringing together smart people with diverse backgrounds

What’s your current view on the market you work in? What makes you feel like your brand stands out?

Online Advertising is a thriving and fast-pacing industry. Times have never been more exciting now, where AppNexus as an important player in the market will have a tremendous impact on the future of online advertising. Our mission is to make advertising matter, right here, right now.

What’s the thing that you appreciate/value/cherish more about what you do as a brand?

Some might say that ads are annoying. Honestly, they mostly are. But advertising is the foundation of the open internet and the free press, and funds the high-quality content that we consume every day. Without advertising, we would not be able to see all those funny cat videos or read premium online news for free. In the past already, we have proven that our innovations had a significant impact on the online advertising market and while others are reaching for the biggest dollar they can possibly make, we believe that we can actually make a change and make advertising matter.

Do you have a special story of something unique you did for a client? Something unusual you did as a team, something memorable you’d like to share?

AppNexus is the creator of prebid.js, a JavaScript wrapper that today helps publishers worldwide to monetize their websites more efficiently. This technology was a disruptive innovation that aggressively challenged the status quo, where the big players in the advertising industry were using their dominance to act in their own interest. It is now a fully open-source, community backed project that the largest publishers in the world are relying on, making Online Advertising more open and transparent than it was before.

What’s your company culture like? What is that you want to represent?

There’s a ton of great values, but here are a few ones to highlight:

– open communication: you have a question to our CEO? Just directly send him a message on slack!

– flexibility: everyone is their own boss here and it’s up to you how you design your day, your project or your next travel

– diversity: we believe that only diverse teams can create the best outcomes

There is great material that we’ve collected to express our culture under

What is your team like? How do you work?

Even though we’re part of one of the biggest companies in the world, we’ve kept the spirit, flexibility and drive of a start-up. We’re working closely with our international colleagues on a day-to-day basis. When you see people playing darts barefoot in the office, you sometimes forget that you’re at work. We hire people with diverse interests and everyone is encouraged to be themselves at work.

What kind of people are you looking for? Who’s the best match for your team?

What we’re looking for is not a ton of experience, but rather the excitement about constantly learning new stuff and the ability to easily understand complex matters. You should be tech-savvy and not afraid of radical changes. An entrepreneurial mindset helps you find the best solution for our clients, but also for yourself every day.

What benefits and perks do you offer your employees? What’s the biggest plus of working for you?

Needless to say, that we’re offering a very attractive financial package. You’re free to choose whatever equipment you want to work with and whatever time you want to arrive to work. Of course, free beer, drinks, snacks and fruits in our offices. Speaking about our offices: we’re regularly traveling to Hamburg, London, Paris, New York or other exciting locations to catch up with our international peers. Free lunch on Fridays, and a global week off during Summer so that people can make the most of their time outside of work.

What are your goals and plans for the future? What’s your biggest ambition?

Our ambition could not be bigger: we want to make advertising matter. Period. We are a global marketplace for advertising already and have all the right assets to really make a change in the future. For that, we will be investing heavily in our teams and products over the next years, and that means growth, lots of responsibility and exciting challenges for our employees.
