Are you exceptional? Do you want to work alongside equally awesome people? At Nanigans, we are taking an active role in shaping the future of advertising on Facebook – and we’re looking for great people to come along for the ride. Our goal-driven technology enables marketers to place social ads at scale on Facebook, and in a way that delivers ROI. In fact, we have been an official Facebook partner on this front since 2010.
The team at Nanigans is revolutionizing how marketers think about social advertising, with a focus on building a platform that delivers true value and return on ad spend. We love technology, solving challenges, crunching data, and of course, are all addicted to Facebook. We have a work-hard, play-hard culture, with each team member passionate about paving the way for the future of advertising and dedicated to capitalizing on the opportunity afforded by being an official Facebook partner (so, 9-5ers need not apply!). Our Ad Ops team is known to break out in mid-day dance sessions, and our CTO has enough Big Gulp cups under his desk to build a fortress. Personalities are plenty!
