Think advertising tech isn’t sexy? Well for the most part, it isn’t…
But that’s why isocket was founded and why we’re kicking butt. The giant online ad industry - and all the real breathing humans that live in it every day - are tired of old, ugly, sucky products. Some of the largest legacy products still require people to log in through Internet Explorer. Not kidding.
We believe in beautiful products that just work.
Not just visually, but also in functionality, service and experience. Not only is great design a proper thing to do for any web product, but in the ad world it also presents a major opportunity for us to succeed through design because everything else is so bad / people are ready for the "consumerisation of the enterprise" in ad tech.
We think we’ve done a pretty good job so far, but isocket's small team doesn't have anyone just focused on design / IxD. Now that we've gone to market, have proper funding, and are accelerating, we need...
The job: isocket's small, passionate team needs a stellar web designer to live and breath our product experience!
You can show the world it’s possible for exceptional products to exist in the multibillion dollar advertising industry.
You can prove to thousands of real people (like our customers over at TechCrunch and Mashable) that they don’t have to sacrifice acceptable web app standards between 9am-5pm. Think these users are stuffy agency Mad Men types drinking martinis? Wrong. They are the bloggers writing at nights about their experiences as a new mommy, or the journalist covering hot new startups. They are the advertisers who just want to promote their new iPhone app in hopes of making it big. They are Presidential candidates running for office.
We’re making it easier than ever for them to buy and sell advertising. Our product, features, business model, and service are all design to please our customers. We’re growing like a weed and can share tons of customer feedback with you. A taste…
From a VP at a major ad agency: “This business is in love with complexity for complexity’s sake. You’re different and I love it! You cut to the core of the problems and solved them. You’re like the Apple of advertising.”
(Apple!? Very humbled by the thought and we aspire to it, but like Wayne and Garth in Wayne's World... "we're not worthy!")
