The Rubicon Project Mission
The Rubicon Project’s web-based, self-serve solution gives any size website the most complete access to the total available advertising market, and its smart matching technology does all the work to perfectly match each ad impression with the optimal money-making opportunity. The Rubicon Project is the new online advertising standard that makes it effortless for websites to generate the mad cash they've always dreamed of.
Rubicon is a river in Italy and a popular idiom meaning to go past the point of no return. In ancient history, the Rubicon River was a boundary line between Gaul and Italy. It’s believed that when Julius Caesar crossed the river in 49 B.C. he said, "the die is cast," and this phrase became the catalyst for his rise to power. So, the phrase "crossing the Rubicon" has come to represent the moment when people commit themselves to a risky and revolutionary course of action.
Our team of industry-experienced, aggressive and passionate renegades is dedicated to bringing a new level of efficiency to the fragmented Internet advertising space. The founders of the Rubicon Project shook up the online advertising industry in 1998 when they created L90/adMonitor, one of the very first ad servers, which became one of the most successful Internet advertising platforms serving more than 3,000 of the web’s most recognized sites and reaching 65% of the Internet population before DoubleClick acquired it.
The Rubicon Project is currently looking to hire ambitious mavericks, entrepreneurial winners and A++ talent.
Life at Rubicon Project
The Rubicon Project is a place for entrepreneurs. If you’ve ever thought about starting your own company or have done it before, then you need to check us out. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we strongly believe in hiring fellow entrepreneurs. Makes sense, right?
You see, we believe it’s all about working hard but also taking time to play hard. Our environment is fast-paced and team oriented but also creative and interactive. If that sounds like a fit for you, then give us a shout.
Our goal is to create a truly different kind of company at the Rubicon Project. First off, our community is super important to us. In fact, we donate a portion of our profits to charities selected by the entire company and have "community service day" once a quarter. Plus, we go above and beyond including token benefits and throw in perks like generous stock option packages, free gym memberships, free lunch and dinner, healthy snacks and free parties. Parties as a benefit? Yeah, not bad.
