We like to disrupt big markets
Online advertising is a $31B market today. It is projected to grow to $50B over the next 5 years. To achieve that kind of growth we need to keep innovating.
We are located in Union Square, NYC
We are excited to be a part of the fast growing New York City tech scene. NYC is full of developers, entrepreneurs and investors with great ideas that will lead to great companies. We are conveniently located in the middle of it all, near all the subway stops and near all the gourmet food trucks.
We build for the scale of the modern internet
We believe that in order to properly accept, analyze, and visualize the web’s data, we need to build technologies that can do this in real time. We like python code that talks to C code. If something is running too slow, we wrap an equivalent C function in SWIG, and we re-run unit tests, and fire up the appropriate profiler. We care about the difference between L1 Cache and L2 Cache.
We care about design
We are building simple, elegant products that solve real problems for advertisers, publishers, and consumers.
We like diverse backgrounds
We have a team of computer scientists, physicists, mathematicians, hackers, and designers. Being fast, smart and contrarian is most important to us.
We also have fun outside of the office
If we weren't building awesome products at Moat, we would be an indie rock band. Shows we liked recently (in no order): Norah Jones, Deadmau5, Mumford & Sons, The XX, Alabama Shakes, Dirty Projectors, Jonsi, Hot Chip, Outkast, Nine Inch Nails, and Four Tet.
