Ok, we know we post about a lot of advertising jobs, but we try to mix it up as much as we can. There are a lot of advertising jobs out there! We’ve covered both traditional agencies and online agencies, but today we’re focusing on an advertising company that does mobile advertising. Why would people want ads on their phones? We guess some people are just sadistic.
Despite a name that makes us think they threaten to break your kneecaps if you don’t subscribe to ads on your cell phone (we’re not sure which choice is more sadistic), AdMob actually seems to be a pretty cool company. They’ve already served over 13 billion mobile ads. In fact, you can watch their ads being served live. If you find that interesting, you should also look at the tools and solutions that AdMob offers. After reading a little about AdMob, you’ll realize that they aren’t delivering advertisements directly to your phone, but are actually placing their ads on mobile versions of web pages. It’s pretty brilliant, especially the way they target ads to the end users.
Most of the currently open jobs at AdMob are pretty technical (Software and Operations Engineering); however, they also have an Account Management position that is unfortunately a little above entry-level. All of these jobs are located in San Mateo, CA. The mobile web is already big business and it’s only growing. Even if mobile sites don’t last because of full featured browsers like Safari on the iPhone, ad targeting to mobile users will still be a cash cow. That’s what AdMob is all about. Take that Computer Science degree and put it to good use at AdMob.
Note: On April 23rd we revisited entry-level jobs at AdMob.
How do you feel about mobile advertising? Would you be interested in getting job search information through text messages? We’ve been working on a project called textmessagejobs.com, but we’re not sure it’s something college students would use. Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
