Since its founding in 2007, Rubicon Project has experienced a ton of growth. The company with a relentless mission to pioneer an advertising technology revolution currently has 14 office locations and more than 500 employees. But while Rubicon Project now has the resources of a big company, it’s definitely held on to the entrepreneurial spirit of a startup.
“We have shown a clear track record of innovation in the industry—from day one, all the way to being the number one independent platform out there,” says Justin Thomas, SVP of Revenue.
Life with Rubicon Project is good. Not only do employees get amazing health care benefits, gym subsidies, free lunches, and access to fully stocked kitchens, they also enjoy cool, location-specific perks.
Take the company’s San Francisco office. It’s in the heart of the city’s tech mecca: Silicon Valley. Team members are super close to every networking event that happens—and they’re also just across the street from TechCrunch.
Rubicon Project’s LA office has just as much to offer. Duc Chau, one of the company’s co-founders, describes all the different ways employees relax after hours: rock climbing, surfing, snowboarding, and more. Thanks to the great coastal location, everything is close by.
Besides location, location, location, Rubicon Project’s staff also raves about how how close-knit everyone is. Avinash Shahdadpuri, a senior engineering director, explains, “This office is like one big Rubicon Project family.”
The company frequently arranges volunteer projects that speak to employees’ values. Past events have included serving at soup kitchens, tutoring, helping the elderly, and cleaning up beaches. Team members get to give back and get closer at the same time. “The culture and sense of community here is organic,” says Ryan Bulaon, a product marketing manager.
And Rubicon Project doesn’t just invest in its community—it also invests in its workers. Rubicon Project University enables employees to continually learn and grow, which means they can expand their roles that much faster. The company also helps its team members if they want to move offices, say, from fast-paced NYC to sunny LA.
Applicants and employees are encouraged to explore positions throughout local and global locations, and, depending on assigned roles and team settings, can make smooth transitions from team to team—utilizing multiple talents, developing skills, and getting to know fellow colleagues company wide.
