What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As advertisers’ capabilities evolve with new channels of delivery, they produce new ways for ads to reach and measure their audiences. Constantly adapting to new methodologies is quite a challenge. We have to stay informed to successfully support our team. Being inquisitive is as important as having technical training to face these challenges.
