mediasmart is solving fundamentally fun and hard problems in the area of mobile advertising. Our team is still really small and this creates a great opportunity for anybody joining us to have a huge impact in shaping up our technical platform and, therefore, the company. If you are looking for technical challenges, growth opportunities and a great learning experience within a team that is always yearning for innovation, this is the company for you.
mediasmart is a start up backed by Kibo Ventures and Komm Investments, whose partners have long experience in the industry of digital advertising. This is a role with enormous potential in a company with a huge growth opportunity within a market that is already growing exponentially as it is.
bsmart is the optimization platform developed by the mediasmart team, and it is designed to connect with multiple sources of inventory (mobile websites, apps, ad exchanges, supply side platforms, etc…), and to optimize the ad serving based on certain KPIs defined for each campaign. An important part of the platform is an algorithm that buys on ad exchanges via real time bidding, in the cutting edge of mobile advertising in terms of technology.
