At Liftoff+Vungle, we're solving one of the core problems faced by every mobile app: growth. To do so, we build Machine Learning and Big Data-driven technology that can accurately predict which apps a user will like, and connect them in a compelling way. Our systems operate at a scale unseen outside of the largest Internet companies -- processing over five million requests per second and interacting with over a billion users. We've taken a technology-first approach and have strong product-market fit; as a result, we've already reached profitability and are seeing tremendous growth.
The Proactive Security team at Liftoff+Vungle secures our products, services, infrastructure, and corporate assets.
