Working at AdGear

TV Advertising Goes Digital

Creating the future of TV

AdGear is a Montreal-based advertising technology company that has been acquired by Samsung Electronics in 2016. Today, the company is focused on reinventing the TV experience as we know it. We’re working tirelessly on making TV advertising better and more relevant, and we do that at a global scale. Our team is in close collaboration with colleagues across the world, including teams at Samsung headquarters in Suwon (Korea), London (UK), Silicon Valley and New York (US).

Digital ad platform
on a world scale

There is an old adage in the ad tech industry: “Don’t tell me what you are, tell me what you do.” Simply put, we are building and operating a next-generation ad platform that reinvents TV advertising. For us, this means consuming a lot of TV data and making it actionable for targeting on behalf of some of the world’s most admired advertisers. Numerous integrations with data providers, coupled with the exclusive Samsung TV data allows marketers to reach consumers with more accurate precision, on- and off-TV. This enables us to achieve this on a wide scale, addressing hundreds of millions of devices.

Culture of innovation

One thing that really excites me about AdGear is the opportunity to work on really complex technologies. If you look underneath the hood, the systems that we develop have to be leading edge in order to be able to process crazy amounts of data in nearly real time.
