An Insider's view of Integral Ad Science

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

While there’s never a shortage of engaging work to be done, IAS encourages balance with perks like paid volunteer time, unlimited discretionary vacation, and Summer Fridays. On a deeper level, I’m comfortable bringing my authentic self to work. IAS is home to active employee resource groups such as IAS Working Parents, as well as informal groups.

Jessica

Software Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

A typical day involves checking in on client performance, pulling reports, answering questions, & ultimately acting as the face of IAS to my set of clients. I like to think of the Customer Success Manager role as a middle-person between our clients & the solutions needed. The key is not to have all the answers, but to know where you can find them.

Zach

Associate Customer Success Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined IAS in April 2020, and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made for my career. I’ve helped train teams how to interview, hired dynamic senior level employees to support the growth of our teams, and been given a level of autonomy that I’ve been craving. Everyday is a new challenge that pushes me to evolve, and I love it!

Timothy

Recruiter

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

It's more important than ever to have open channels of communication. We hold weekly virtual town halls where we keep everyone updated on important company news, but more importantly, open our leadership team up for questions. We have several open Slack channels where the team can ask about anything - from my US Open picks to our latest policies.

Lisa

Chief Executive Officer

How does your team reward individual success?

My team popularized the notion of awarding karma points on slack which are a light-hearted reward to show appreciation. We also give a shoutout in the R&D newsletter for individual and team achievements.

DevOps Engineer
