Ever wonder what it’s like to work at ZypMedia? Being a part of a growing company has many benefits, including all the hard work that comes with perks. As an enterprise software company, our mission is to empower our partners with the right technology and customer service they need to achieve their business goals and reach their audiences with our digital solutions, clear guidance and training, professional and enthusiastic support, and easy-to-understand ad campaign reports. But how is all of this possible? With our team of digital experts, of course!

“‘Teamwork makes the dream work’ is a phrase that everyone has heard, but sometimes it’s elusive. If you’ve worked in a team that really clicks, you’ll know how true the meaning is. A great team is a pleasure to work with, and I’m very fortunate to work with a high-performance team that achieves incredible results for us at ZypMedia.”

Aman Sareen, Co-Founder and CEO, ZypMedia

There's nothing like the energy of a growing company—one where everyone brings their own unique skills, creativity, and experience to the table to create something extraordinary together. This kind of synergy feels downright magical.

 

Here is what a typical day at ZypMedia looks like and why you should consider joining our team to contribute to building the future of ad tech!

Breakfast meetings: A smart start to the day.

At ZypMedia, we like to start our day by eating breakfast together, while brainstorming over new ad campaigns and strategies, problem-solving for our clients, or just setting forth the day’s plan. The company provides a variety of breakfast options, including fruits and muffins, dim sum, and bagels, to power everyone up for the day ahead.

 

“My colleagues at ZypMedia are my favorite aspect of my work life. I love enjoying the first meal of the day with them while using our brains when they are fresh. The company culture here is friendly, and my team is very supportive. I feel more empowered to put forth my best work knowing that my team always has my back.”

Joshua Zhang, Ad Operations Specialist, ZypMedia

 

Energized and ready to tackle the work.

The departments at ZypMedia include account management, marketing, sales, ad operations, engineering and product, analytics, and business intelligence.

The engineering team forms the backbone of the company by making and supporting our product and technology needed to empower our clients. The ad operations, analytics, and account management teams focus on running and optimizing ad campaigns and taking care of our clients. The marketing and sales teams focus on spreading brand awareness, creating a demand for our services, and enabling our partners’ sales teams.

Every Zypster has a unique role to play that impacts the overall success of the company. The culture at ZypMedia is focused on success, growth, and quality. We all get the opportunity to contribute to projects that probably wouldn’t be available to us at other companies. We all work together to reach new goals, new KPIs, new campaigns, and new accounts.

 

“It’s exciting to work for a company that’s innovative and solves the real-time needs of the industry. At ZypMedia, our team's goal is to keep making our product better and better by using state-of-the-art technologies to empower our partners.”

Sameer Darekar, Data Scientist, ZypMedia

 

Lunchtime bonding and a little shoptalk.

We have daily free lunches delivered to the office. Yes, you read that right.

While enjoying our midday meal, Zypsters discuss industry news, share insights, or take a mental break with a little friendly conversation. Some folks take a walk by the piers, while others stream Game of Thrones (of course we are down with OTT).

“When the weather allows, the company has picnic lunches outside. It gives us all great bonding time outside of the office to discuss projects or our new favorite TV shows and just enjoy each other’s company."

Tracey Allen, Communication Designer, ZypMedia

 

Refreshed and back in the zone.

Most of our day involves getting our daily tasks completed, managing multiple projects, and hitting our company and team goals. Each of us impacts the company’s vision in our own way, including our Zyp pup, Arya, who keeps afternoon slumps at bay. (Just look at that face!)

Our tightly-knit teams work closely and collaboratively with each other to help make digital advertising easy and scalable for our partners. With many channels of information and input, our business intelligence team strives to keep a holistic mindset in identifying data-related insights for ZypMedia.

“ZypMedia is a great place to start a career. I never stop learning here, and I get a strong sense of accomplishment from my daily work. My coworkers are the best part of the work, especially Arya, the Zyp pup!”

Ruohong Gu, Business Analyst, Business Intelligence, ZypMedia

 

Collaborate with our satellite offices.

ZypMedia is headquartered in San Francisco, California with several satellite offices across the U.S. to ensure we have coverage and support for every time zone. Our additional teams in the U.S. are based in Chicago, Orlando, New York, and Phoenix.

It’s a delight to work with people who have different backgrounds and cultures, and we celebrate the unique contributions of every team member. A typical day of a Zypster involves collaborating with our remote teams.

“Communication is key to keep everyone connected. There isn’t a day that we aren’t jumping on video chat or Slack channels to collaborate and contribute to the company’s goals. While offices are miles apart, everyone always feels they are part of a bigger team.”

Rachel Egan, SVP Sales, ZypMedia

 

Time for your party hat!

There is always an energetic vibe at ZypMedia. We work hard and wear many hats—including party hats! We love to acknowledge our achievements, even if it’s just getting through a good productive day. From game nights and happy hours to day trips to Napa and parties, we love celebrating our journey and successes.

“I love setting up happy hours and game nights for my colleagues. It’s a time that we all get to socialize with coworkers from other teams, talk with our founders, and really spend quality time with each other while enjoying some snacks, plenty of drinks and just a bit of competitive spirit.”

Haley Berg, Executive Assistant, ZypMedia


Sure, working in a growing company comes with a lot of responsibilities, and certainly the fast pace is not for everybody, but if you are eager to explore amazing growth opportunities and push yourself to the next level, ZypMedia just might be the perfect place for you.

We’re always looking for talented folks to come and share our dream.
