A little about us

Our mission is to master the art and science of maximising attention. We have built the world’s first AI to measure how long an ad is looked at – a metric we call Attention Time. Fuelled and verified by eye-tracking data but able to throw off the shackles of panels and instead scale infinitely across the world wide web, our AI is set to revolutionise how digital media is measured, bought and sold.

We are a fast-growing business with every major agency group and a great list of top tier publishers using our technology. We’ve won coveted ‘Marketing Technology Company of the Year’ awards from B&T and Mumbrella and featured twice as a Rising Star in the Deloitte Fast 50 Technology Awards.

We are a passionate, enthusiastic team who genuinely spend our days doing what we love the most – creating new disruptive technologies and products. Join us today.
