Down-to-earth ad tech with a great product and smart team
Social & Digital Media Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – May 7, 2013
Flite's company culture is an unique balance of start-up innnovation and advertising savvy.
Overall the company is a phenomenally smart, hard-working bunch that is really dedicated to a common goal — transforming online advertising into something efficient and effective for advertisers and something relevant and interesting to consumers.
It's about transforming ads into something that people love.
For an ad tech company, you might be surprised at how down-to-earth everyone is — and how much effort goes into making this a great place to be. Flite's got a non-judgmental atmosphere where folks are free to be themselves and work in the manner that works best for them.
In terms of process, there is a generally horizontal and transparent style to management. X-teams are formed across departments, so projects get tackled with the creativity and zeal you get from having multiple perspectives facing a common challenge. We meet weekly over free lunch to demo the latest product updates and celebrate the weeks achievements. Sometimes demos are factual and informative, and sometimes they're infamous and hilarious.
We're on top of our game, and making huge strides, and our goals are ambitious and not always easy. But we support each other, and take feedback in earnest. Many of us come in, work as hard as we can, and then go home. I wouldn't say we're as "after-hours" as some other places in the area, but we also find time here and there to be social, like during Thursday whiskey and wine tasting, or the periodic super-fun adventures into nature or places of amusement.
more... Truly it's inspiring to be part of a company with such a solid trajectory and a great group to back it up. It's my favorite job I've ever had, and I know I'm not alone.less
Great product, quality co-workers, openness, career growth
Perfect professional mix of opportunity, challenge, collaboration and FUN!

Some of the smartest people I've ever worked with! A core expectation of all employees at Flite is to be a good citizen. And that makes a great company! There is a strong & individual sense of social responsibility. Everyone seems to be personally invested in contributing in a positive way. No single one of us can build a culture on our own. It feels great to be a part of such an inspired team. And it’s been that way from the beginning. The leadership team is genuine, passionate and very approachable. I’ve seen management invest equally in people and we celebrate star efforts weekly during our full company product release & demos. If you move the bar on the company goals, you will be recognized and rewarded.
We consistently keeps a pulse on what is needed to keep this place rockin’ via our Culture Town-Hall mtgs and annual independent and anonymous survey in 2013 showed 89% overall company satisfaction.
Yoga at lunchtime and an endless supply of fruit are great perks, but ultimately, my work at Flite is rewarding because I have a group of leaders and peers pushing me to think, produce, grow and feel good about my contributions!
