The InMobi Story

We like big challenges. Building a new company in 2007 was no ordinary task. As the recession hit, the iPhone was born and launched a revolution. Mobile advertising wasn’t yet a thing, other than SMS, and venture capital funding was hard to come by for four guys in India.  

Yet with passion, foresight, and conviction – InMobi charted its own course, helping to transform the way consumers engage with their phones and create today's booming app economy wherein consumers now spend 4.2 hours per day. 

After fifteen years of innovation, our end-to-end advertising software platform, connected content, and commerce experiences have formed a powerful engine for growth that activates audiences, drives real connections, and diversifies revenue for companies around the world. 

Our global organization of InMobians is excited to continue discovering and developing impactful technologies that will transform people, businesses, and society.

 

Position Summary

This is a key position to support our Supply Side Platforms, the largest and fastest growing revenue engine within InMobi. In this role, you’ll be working closely with the GM of our sell side platforms as part of the Growth and Strategy team, driving multiple strategic and operational initiatives for the platform.

You will ensure business and operating excellence continues apace to be successful in the long term.

In this role, you will report into the Director of Growth and S&O, based out of the US, as part of a 5 people team that is based out of the Bangalore and London offices.
