Careers

We’re hiring, we’re always hiring – because we hire people not functions.

Our thesis is simple: smaller organizations are more efficient, more fun, and more like family. We’re incredibly picky about who we hire because we believe that if we can find the absolute best candidate – we can accomplish with 100 people what would otherwise take 300.

To work at flytedesk you have to be able to grow into a top 1% performer in your field. That’s mostly a function of hard work, so we don’t ask you to know everything off the bat. We’re proud of what we do to make flytedesk a great place to learn.

We also look for kindred spirits and when we call ourselves band of merry nerds, we’re only half kidding. We want to know what drives you, we want to see where your moral compass points you, we want to know who you are. This sounds really crazy but building a company is hard and we bleed for each other to get where we want to go – we need to believe you’re worth bleeding for. Perhaps it’s worth noting that while we take our work seriously, but ourselves, not so much. If you’re a me-me narcissist, we probably won’t like you.

We look for diverse backgrounds and common threads. There are few things more gratifying than looking around at a group of people who look different, sound different, come from different places and yet all march to the beat of the same drum. Flytedesk is made up of grad school valedictorians and class dodgers, Dungeons & Dragons enthusiasts and pro-skiers, sartorialists and people you might mistake for a hobo.

We’re weird, we’re family, and we work harder than anyone else. Come join us.

flytedesk is the technology that powers campus advertising.

Advertisers spend $75b per year targeting millennials 18-24, but when they’re in college, they’re almost impossible to reach. 63% block ads online, 57% don’t have cable, and students switch platforms faster than ad products can be developed. Important audience, pain in the ass to reach.

Flytedesk is the largest network of campus advertising and our automated ad buying platform is the fastest, easiest, most efficient way to access the 20m millennials that live, eat, sleep, work, and play on campus. We currently have $1b of unique inventory that generates 5b monthly impressions.

We’re a Techstars company backed by the founders of CP+B, SpotX, and AOL. Big brands rely on flytedesk to access their millennial audience, like Nintendo, Trojan, Jimmy John’s, Adult Swim, Dr Pepper, the Peace Corps, Publix, L.L.Bean, Chacos, etc.
