Vox Media builds smart media brands people love, empowering trusted digital voices with proprietary technology to create and distribute stories to an audience of hundreds of millions of young adults worldwide. Vox Media is eight distinct brands: The Verge, Vox, SB Nation, Eater, Polygon, Racked, Eater, Curbed, and Recode. And our ad technology is so great that we’ve created a premium advertising network in 2016; we proudly call it Concert.
And our Revenue Team…
We all dislike internet ads. Often times they are distasteful, annoying and track far too much personal information. Let’s rebuild a better advertising paradigm together. Join us and rethink what is possible with a holistic content and advertising experience. The future of journalism funding is in our hands.
Our award-winning ad-tech teams build the custom display advertising platform and authoring tools that power our beautiful high-impact ads, immersive native advertising features, and reporting dashboards that help our teams measure success.
Our team is playful, helpful, and eager to make online advertising better. We want to deliver great products without losing our humanity. Let’s be wonderful together.
