Data Engineer


The global advertising market is a $500b dollar a year market.  The core goal of the advertising market is to drive a consumer into a location where a product is sold.  The challenge is that no advertiser today can definitively prove that they have been successful in achieving this core goal – until now.  At Freckle IoT we provide to brands, advertisers and trading desks an agnostic in-store attribution tag supported by the largest platforms in the world to solve this exact problem.  In the future, no brand will advertise without an attribution metric.  We believe this will be Freckle.

Are you intrigued about introducing technology to the global advertising market that will fundamentally change the way advertising is bought and sold? Do you think the industry should move away from the CTR as its core metric and focus instead on an attribution metric?  Are you looking to make the move to a data first company having tired of the platform war?  Are you excited to work in a small team where everyone knows who you are and appreciates what you are doing for the company? Do you want to apply new technologies like Blockchain instead of just talking about them? Freckle is a true start up. It is hard, but you will learn a lot.  We work fast, have big aspirations and have a lot of fun along the way.

We are a data company with a mobile focus that helps brands, publishers and intelligence firms solve business problems through deterministically validated customer data. We deliver customer segmentation and instore attribution via one to one matching of real-time user data. Our solution is comprised of an ecosystem of connected devices, location beacons and application partners coupled with proprietary software and science.

At Freckle we do not sell media. We collect, measure and sell data. Freckle works with agencies and media companies to measure attribution.  We are a platform agnostic, first party data company that helps clients better understand the effectiveness of their media.
