Our journey has just started.  A year after launching our initial ad product in Norway we get solid feedback from the market telling us it's time to scale up. Our company is still relatively small, which means that each new member of our development team will have a huge impact on the company. We are excited to venture into new areas of technology and strengthening the sales function to support our strategy. That is why we want to have you as a member of our technology or sales team. Our goal is to make one of the most effective and human friendly advertising products in the industry - both for the advertiser and the consumer. We know this can be achieved without compromising the privacy of the consumer by contextually coupling ads with relevant newspaper articles at scale. We'll enter each national market in Europe with our unique technology and data set to demonstrate the benefits of our product and the consumer insight provided which create unique brand advertising opportunities.
