Boundlessly innovative,
passionately ambitious.

Together, we are driving the future course of Europe’s video and TV advertising industry. A future where the internet remains open. Where European media owners hold greater power over Silicon Valley’s giants. And where our technology is the core component of the European adtech infrastructure — safeguarding it all.

Ambitious? You betcha. Innovative? 
A must.

The engine room

The essence of how we tech

We stand for ethical, dependable, high-quality, and automated technology.


Cloud native, open source, code coverage in software testing, containerised in Kubernetes


Production services



Guided by four working principles.



If we encounter a challenge, we don’t simply hand it off to someone who may possess more knowledge than us — we strive to grow our own skill sets so we can catch our own fish.



We have a fail-friendly environment — where failure is not just accepted, it’s encouraged — because experimentation is a requisite for innovation. We don’t hide our mistakes; we acknowledge them as an important part of the learning and growth process — always failing forward.


Balance predictability and innovation

We give clients estimated time frames for product updates and releases that they can count on, but we do not let deadlines prevent more innovative ideas and solutions from surfacing. At the same time, we do not get lost in innovating to the point that clients cannot rely on our timeframes. We balance predictability with innovation in order to be dependable in output — and quality.


Embrace change

We recognise that our success lies in our courage and willingness to grow, adapt, try new things, and change. We welcome every opportunity to evolve for the better.

In endless pursuit of excellence.

We want to be our best, knowing full well that our best is an endless pursuit underpinned by lifelong learning.


An internal learning platform offering our employees the opportunities to learn and develop new skills through structured courses, peer-to-peer training, and workshops.


Each year, managers hold performance evaluation meetings with direct reports to foster growth in their current roles and help them with long-term career trajectory planning.

Leadership development programmes

From established leaders to young professionals, we offer our employees the resources to build upon and develop their leadership style, approach, and skills.


An annual knowledge-sharing event where colleagues become instructors and share their expertise on various industry and personal development topics.


A monthly knowledge-exchange workshop led by a fellow colleague on a company, industry, or personal development-related topic of their choice.

Skill development

All employees are encouraged to participate in sponsored skill development courses and programmes via Udacity, Bertelsmann University, & Coursera.


We offer all employees personal coaching sessions on topics ranging from solving interpersonal conflict within the workplace to professional development.


Committed to doing what is right.

To us, business is more than simply maximising profits. We believe we have a social responsibility to do what’s best for our people, the planet, and society at large.
