Insider's spotlight

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We have a ‘two-minute rule’—if you don’t know something and you can’t find the answer by yourself in two minutes, you should ask a colleague. Everyone’s always ready to give you a hand and help you learn.


Account Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company? is a great place for cross-functional career development. I started as an account manager, but since then I've gravitated to the product side because I was interested in what's happening under the hood of our product.


Product Manager

We foster extreme transparency, which allows our teams the freedom and responsibility to pursue our vision in a self-driven way. Everyone is trusted as an owner, we’re all responsible for thinking and acting in the long-term interest of the company. At, nothing is someone else’s problem — we’re all doers with an entrepreneurial attitude.


CEO & Founder

Automating the whole online customer acquisition funnel. We’ve only scratched the surface in solving problems for paid social marketing teams, and we’ve already pinpointed many processes in design and business intelligence which we could automate, like video creation processes, or reporting and attribution across
