Who we are

When you join this team, you will be joining a team on the path to creating the most complete and powerful mobile strategy platform. You will be managing everything required to turn an app into a business. Their products are centred around distribution, tracking, performance, intelligence, and monetisation. Their focus is to combine their services into a single platform to allow customers to maximise the advertising spend and improve the quality of their advertising inventory.

They are a globally distributed team of 70 staff, principally operating from US, UK, Hong Kong & Dubai, with all technical operations run from the UK where their London Headquarters are based.

Historically the company has had three core divisions, which we are integrating to form the single unified platform. These divisions are Media - our mobile ad Network and campaign solution; Data - for monitoring apps, benchmarking competitors and understanding market trends as well as ASO (App Store Optimisation) fundamentals; Cyber Security - to secure and protect our customers and their apps.

The Project

This team are different, they aren't making apps! Rather, they provide an SDK that mobile app developers will integrate into their app portfolio. This is a critical component to their product and requires a great deal of care and attention when we prepare a release. Their Android SDK's are written in Java and Kotlin. They interact with a number of Restful API which are maintained by their product development teams.
