JOB DESCRIPTION

APPLY
We believe that we are in the midst of a massive shift in how marketers identify and reach with consumers; with the abundance of "big data" and advancements in machine learning there are more possibilities than ever to target communications and advertisements to specific segments of consumers.

At Jornaya, we believe in using innovative technology and data that empowers companies to connect with their customers and prospects at the right time and in the most meaningful way. At the end of the day, marketers want to reach consumers who actually want what they have - this is good for both marketers and the consumer.

We take pride in helping our customers understand and apply our solutions and data to improve their digital marketing strategies in new and creative ways. When our customers win, we win.

We got our start in 2011 by providing a solution that enables companies to evaluate the quality of online leads by witnessing the lifecycle of each lead. Since then, we've established a robust network of websites that provides us a unique view into hundreds of millions of online consumer events each month, and are leveraging this to deliver the surest signals of a consumer's intent and where they are in a buying journey.

As a testament to our beliefs and approach, we've enjoyed 19 consecutive quarters of growth, are backed by top-notch investors, and are looking to expand our team to continue fulfilling our mission to help marketers make the best decision on every intent-driven consumer interaction.

If this sounds like something that you want to be part of, read on!
