OpenX Named As One of Advertising Age’s Top Fifty Best Places to Work for 2015
LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK – November 16, 2015 – OpenX, a leader in creating programmatic advertising marketplaces, today announced it has been recognized by Advertising Age as one of the fifty best places to work in advertising and media.
OpenX was selected among hundreds of ad-tech firms, agencies, and media organizations in the United States. Advertising Age based its rankings on a comprehensive analysis of company benefits, learning and career development opportunities, positive company culture, employee satisfaction, compensation, and detailed surveys of nearly 20,000 people across the industry.
“As always, the competition was tough. Out of the hundreds of companies who applied, we’re calling out more honorees than ever before. Fifty big shops, independents, agencies, ad tech, and media companies earned recognition for being leaders in recruiting, retaining, and cultivating talent,” said Ken Wheaton, editor of Advertising Age. “At the end of the day all these organizations are in the talent business and they’re doing it right. They’re finding interesting, relevant, and often unexpected ways to create cultures and work environments that keep employees engaged.”
“At OpenX we recognize that our people are our core asset. As a result, our number one strategic goal is to create an environment where people can deliver their best work, grow quickly, and have a uniquely rewarding career experience,” said Tim Cadogan, CEO of OpenX. “This is an ongoing project and we have a lot more we want to achieve, but this recognition is a great milestone on the journey, so we are grateful to receive it.”
In 2015 alone, OpenX increased its headcount to 440 employees, fueling its growth as one of the leading players in the rapidly evolving programmatic space. Programmatic spending worldwide is estimated to grow to a $50 billion industry by 2020.
