Advertising Age’s annual ranking recognizes and honors the best employers in the marketing and media industry.

UberMedia, a trusted mobile authority that transforms behavioral data into actionable consumer insights, was named one of Ad Age's 2016 Best Places to Work. UberMedia was ranked No. 12 among 50 companies selected for the list. This survey and awards program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employers in the marketing and media industry, benefiting the industry’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is based on criteria including workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, demographics, and the employee experience.

UberMedia is a mobile measurement and business intelligence platform that operates out of Idealab, a world-renowned operator of leading technology businesses. The company was founded in 2010 as a social media app publisher but pivoted in 2012 to the successful mobile technology platform it is today. Gladys Kong, CEO of UberMedia, attributes UberMedia’s success to her extremely talented and passionate team.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the best companies to work for in our industry,” said Kong. "Our commitment to a thriving company culture and the development of our employees is crucial to our success. Our unique ability to evolve location-based technology is the direct result of our innovative and dedicated team as well as our commitment to our employees and the inspiring work environment that we have created.”

“The companies on Ad Age’s Best Places to Work represent the cream of the crop in marketing, advertising, media, and ad technology,” said Deputy Editor Judann Pollack. “In these highly competitive fields, these 50 stand out for their best-in-class benefits, salaries, and hiring practices, but also for creating a compelling culture in which employees are engaged, encouraged, and valued. Talent has never been more important in marketing, and our Best Places to Work companies have proven that they can attract and retain the best in the business.”

The 2016 Best Places to Work list is a joint effort of Advertising Age and Best Companies Group. Best Companies Group is dedicated to establishing programs to identify and recognize workplaces that nurture a superior level of employee satisfaction and engagement. Companies from across the United States participated in the two-part survey process to determine Ad Age’s Best Places to Work. Any agency, ad tech, media company, or marketing division of a brand that’s been in business for more than one year with more than 15 full-time employees was eligible. Public, private, for-profit, and non-for-profit businesses could all participate. The list was determined by feedback from two surveys. The first garnered information about employers offerings and the second was an employee survey to measure the workplace experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
