An Insider's view of Viant

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's a casual environment so you're not intimidated when talking to someone higher up. The open layout makes it so you're not closed out from others and people are more approachable. There are also a lot of events that help team interconnectivity and building relationships with team members. The work environment helps me do the best work I can do.

Chase

Ad Operations Coordinator

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

The challenge we have is each day we're facing a different, unique problem and we have to figure out a solution. Our data is so large and it creates many edge cases. We have to figure out how to cache the data, dig through the data and figure out if the data is valid. It's not routine work and we have to solve the problem in a short amount of time.

Mike

Software Developer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Viant as a Campaign Manager. It allowed me to learn about the industry and managing effective marketing campaigns. I used the knowledge I gained to grow within the organization and I now work on our Sales Team as an Account Executive.

Stephanie

Account Executive

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

Being accessible and approachable is key to developing a relationship with my team. The benefits of technology definitely allows for a more open door experience. Regardless of what I’m doing, they can message me at any time and I respond as soon as I can. In addition, we hold weekly 1:1s to regroup on key priorities and discuss anything they need.

Michelle

VP, Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

We have great managers that don't put limitations or restriction on growth. They expect more from you and give you the encouragement to learn and develop. They are good at teaching and recognizing hard work. It's up to you as an individual to choose what you want to learn and how you want to move your career path.
