“Criteos say it better” :
I joined Criteo in early 2011 after successful runs at Yahoo! and the Huffington Post. I chose to come here next because I've been looking for an answer to the problem of getting display ads to work for e-commerce companies for close to ten years. This company has solved one of the stickiest problems in display advertising - how to be measured, and succeed, solely on purely post-click performance. We really perform like search. We've got close to half the company's employees dedicated to the math and science of performance display, helping to basically build the system that predicts the click. Criteo is a fast-paced, innovative company that is one of the few to really grow a display ad business globally, and I'm proud to be a part of it.
After 4 years in the web industry, I joined Criteo in 2009 as a salesman. My goal was to sign new contracts and manage my customers’ portfolio especially in the Hi-tech sector. Criteo has grown very fast and after only 2 years in the company, I had the chance to join the Marketing team as Southern Europe Marketing Manager. Criteo gave me the opportunity to apply my sales skills to a function that supports the sales team. My new job at Criteo is exciting!
Exactly a year and a half ago, freshly graduated, with little experience in the web industry, I joined Criteo’s French Sales Team. They were very supportive and taught me everything I know today. A few months later, I was asked whether I’d like to go to London; I took the opportunity without any hesitation, and arrived in January 2011. I learnt new things every day and met daily challenges. After a while, they offered me a position as manager in the French MMS team. What an amazing opportunity! And now, here I am today, with more challenges, more energy and even more keen to learn and share with the MMS team.
I joined Criteo in April 2009, after travelling during 3 months in Brazil. In my first two years, I was in charge of building the German publisher business from the French headquarters. I have been in charge of the Brazilian & Latin American Business Development in São Paulo for one year; it’s given me the fantastic chance to apply my professional publisher know-how in the place I always dreamt of working in. Obrigada Criteo!
I began working at Criteo in September 2010, as Sales Manager in charge of our business with the French media agencies. After just a year and a half, I had the great opportunity to move far overseas: in April 2012 my mission will be to enhance our revenue in Australia. Criteo is now a worldwide company which allows me to fulfill two main goals: to have a professional experience in a foreign country and to discover a new culture.
I joined Criteo in May 2010 as an intern in the Engine team, working on large-scale machine learning algorithms. During that time, I’ve seen my team triple in size, and many new exciting projects starting. I have now accepted the opportunity to move to Palo Alto as a software engineer, where I will be building a bridge between the French and American R&D and will continue to work on an ambitious predictive algorithm!
I joined Criteo in May 2011 for my final year internship in the R&D Engine team, where I worked on a decision mathematics project for 6 months. The internship was very interesting especially in a stimulating and dynamic company full of growth. But I felt I needed more contact with the business side, whilst keeping a scientific touch, so Criteo gave me the opportunity to try the Business Intelligence team. Knowing this was what I wanted to do, I applied for the job in the team, and I have been there since December 2011! Everything is possible in Criteo.
5 years ago, with just 20 employees, I began my journey in Criteo, where we were all encouraged to take the initiative. I took this opportunity to develop the Italian sales business from scratch. Today, Italy is part of the most dynamic country in our business and continues to grow with positive results.
I joined Criteo in September 2008. After several years spent as a Media buyer for Pixmania, I wanted to get a different view of the online Industry. The funny thing is that I joined after testing Criteo’s offer as an advertiser so I knew this was the right move. At that time I was particularly looking for a tech company with a very strong emphasis on R&D. I started in the Sales team, then switched to an Account Management role and in October 2009 I moved to Palo Alto to be part of the team tasked with starting the US business. Now, I am based in the NY office to head the East Coast Account Management team, continuing our US successes.
