On May 1, 2007 the Rubicon Project launched with one lofty goal in mind – to automate the buying and selling across the $65 billion global online advertising industry. Beginning with a 2,000 square foot office, one bathroom and about 10 employees…I think it’s safe to say that our team has come a long way!
Here we are celebrating our fourth birthday in a time when the industry continues to push the limits on innovation and display advertising is expected to reach $30 billion in 2012 (eMarketer). Along with our partners and customers, we’re on our way to accomplishing the mission we set out to conquer. We couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity that lies ahead for the advertising ecosystem.
Of course, we’d like to take a moment to thank our 450+ premium publisher customers for their continued support. The product developments we’ve made over the years would not have been possible without your insight, feedback and trust in our team. It’s because of you that the REVV platform has reached 80+ billion ad transactions per month and 500+ billion real-time bids per quarter.
And last but certainly not least, thank you to all 250 Rubicon team members, across 8 offices in 5 countries. It’s your hard work, devotion and significant contributions that make Rubicon the leading advertising technology company.
Happy Birthday to our team and thank you to our customers for believing in us! Here’s to many more….Tags: company news, customers, display advertising, online advertising, premium publisher, rubicon project, the rubicon project
