    I have been working at Centro full-time (Less than a year)


    I never thought I would ever find a place where I could work on cool problems AND have a great work life balance until I came to Centro. I had previously worked at places where I may have had an amazing work life balance, but was bored with the problems I worked on/pace of the company. I've also been at places where I worked on super cutting edge problems, but at the cost of having to work crazy hours and get burned out. Here at Centro, I can honestly say that I am able to have both.

    The employees I've been around are all super smart, yet humble, and not overly competitive like I've seen at other places. People are always willing to help, and we all collectively recognize that we're in this together and doing our best!


    We have a gorgeous office downtown, and as much as I enjoy the flexibility of remote work during covid, I miss going there!

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Centro.


    Phone Screen, then panel interviews with potential colleagues (over a few hours), then final interview with hiring manager. The team was very friendly and the recruiter kept me in the loop throughout the process.

  • Centro’s Shawn Riegsecker dicusses how to innovate in a time of crisis with IAB’s and IAB Tech Lab’s Angelina Eng. He discusses how our product, Basis, automates digital media and gets in the weeds of what media professionals and agencies are going through. Shawn also gives advice on how agencies should be managing the data of brands.

  • Centro has been named by Fortune as the No. 15 Best Workplace for Women among small and medium-sized businesses in the U.S. Employees say: “It’s the energy they put into their people. I’m so proud to work here and put in the work to contribute to overall profitability. Our company is almost completely split for the male/female ratio, and our diversity is at the forefront of our measures.” To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Fortune partnered with the people analytics firm Great Place to Work® to analyze anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.7 million US employees.
