Job Description
Thanks for your interest in Epsilon! Here's the deal. You're not just applying to some basic technology company, you're applying to a powerhouse that's changing the face of an industry! We're a new company with a 15-year heritage.
With over a trillion consumer interactions a month and second only to Google in media scale. We've done what marketers have only dreamed of for years: introduced a single platform that offers all the data management, user identification, decision optimization, dynamic personalization, media delivery, and consumer insights all at the individual level to make true 1:1 communication real.
We couldn't have done any of that without our team of superstars and a culture that celebrates each achievement. Individuals matter just as much within our walls as they do in the 1:1 marketing programs we create for clients. Here's what we believe in at Epsilon:
  • Ownership - We're determined to have everyone make an impact.
  • Integrity - We treat our clients, customers and co-workers with genuine respect.
  • Teamwork - We believe everything worthwhile is achieved through collaboration.
  • Innovation - The status quo bores us. Everyone is encouraged to think differently and invent relentlessly.

Epsilon is committed to one simple but truly exciting principle: each person is different and every person matters. This mindset fuels everything we do for our clients and for each other. We do magic for our clients and we have fun doing it. If that sounds like your sort of place, we'd love to hear more from you.

An Insider's view of Epsilon

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a company band, made up of anywhere from 30 to 40 employees at a given time. The band has a large following and performs at charity events around Chicago. They also perform a full set at Epsilon’s holiday party each year at the House of Blues. My jaw hit the floor when I saw my peers up on stage rocking out.

Paul

Associate Automation & Infrastructure Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate through storytelling. It’s not ‘how’ we build it, but rather ‘why’ we build it. We need to tell stakeholders a story about a consumer pain point, solving it in a differentiated manner and the larger vision. Then, collaboration occurs as we incorporate feedback and have a motivated team building towards a shared vision.

Matt

VP, Product Management:

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

Conversant has a very good work-life balance, including unlimited PTO. As a young adult, traveling around the world is one my top priorities and working with a company that aligns with that is a huge plus. I have had the flexibility to visit 7 countries. That flexibility is one of many things that has kept me at Conversant for five years.

Alba

Team Lead, Engineering
