An Insider's view of Digital Turbine

How does your team reward individual success?

Digital Turbine encourages employees to grow professionally in a supportive and meritocratic environment. Since 2017, I have progressed from seller to regional lead in EMEA. If you’re a highly motivated and ambitious individual, Digital Turbine is the right home for you.

The leadership at DT is amazing at identifying the strengths of their team members. They are always finding great opportunities for individuals to use their skills and grow in areas they express interest in. For people who are driven and excited about technology there is no better place to work.

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

Work life balance is excellent at Digital Turbine! CEO Bill Stone has outlined “Freedom” as one of our company values. If I need time to exercise in the middle of day, pick up kids early, doctor appointments, etc. I have no guilt in doing so. Should my work tasks become time sensitive, I can easily catch up when the kids are in asleep.

Graham

Sr Advertising Account Manager
