About the Company

Gimbal is a marketing and advertising automation platform powered by physical-world data. Using it’s own hardware and software, Gimbal enables brands, media agencies, and marketers to deliver relevant messages in order to improve marketing communications and measure the effectiveness of their campaigns. Powered by its always-on location SDK, micro-location BLE beacons, and a complete mobile advertising stack, Gimbal’s suite of tools generates hyper-accurate location data that allows brands to target consumers more effectively and attribute their spend via actions in the physical world.
 
Gimbal is headquartered in downtown LA with offices in San Diego, New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, and Sao Paulo. 
· 7 Years in development
· $90M Invested

Gimbal formed when two independent companies merged in November 2016. The Mobile Majority was founded in 2012 to build a cohesive mobile advertising platform and Gimbal, Inc. was spun out of Qualcomm in 2014 with an emphasis on its industry-leading beacon hardware and proximity management software. Together, the company is the most comprehensive location-based software and hardware provider in the country, and we are looking to add a few acts to our all star line up.
 
Accolades include:
· Inc. Magazine ranked Gimbal, Inc. number 66 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies of 2017.
· “Fastest Growing Technology Company in LA for 2016” 
· “Best Creative Technology” by the 4As.
Gimbal is led by a team of experienced serial entrepreneurs and media industry veterans - all with a shared passion for eliminating what clients have identified as the biggest issues in mobile today. We believe this offering can lead us to a multi-billion liquidity event via acquisition or IPO.

An Insider's view of Gimbal

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We face uncommon technical challenges that call for smart, hard-earned solutions. The marriage between location and advertising causes challenges that stem from sheer scale. Our systems generate a massive amount of daily events, which we ingest, enrich, and make extremely useful. While demanding, these challenges sharpen our engineering team daily.

Matt

Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Your voice matters, do more with less, and hard work truly pays off. Gimbal fosters an environment that challenges you to think differently and also speak up if you have ideas. Your role doesn't necessarily define you and if you can bring something new to the table, everyone is open to listening and learning from it.

Liz

Director of Marketing

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Aside from an open-door policy, I make an effort to spend time with teams across the organization to understand what's happening in their world. Enabling the flow of information from team to team allows everyone across the organization to connect dots and make better informed decisions.

Matt

COO / CMO

How does the company support your career growth?

I find that the ability to seek and share knowledge is a standard practice at Gimbal. This allows natural growth within the company as well as within each employee's specific role. Senior leaders are not only willing to let others contribute to larger scale projects, but actually encourage it and promote it.
