Our mission is to connect people to the mobile apps and tools they love
How it started
Since 2012, we’ve been at the forefront of changing how brands think about growing their app businesses.
From being the first to develop an ROI-focused approach to optimizing users to finding new ways of helping mobile businesses get more from their apps, our goal has always been to help mobile app companies connect to their audiences.
Today, we challenge the status quo by developing innovative technologies that help you advance app visibility and build your brand in the long term.
Better positioned to power your growth
In 2021, we merged with our friends at Vungle, creating one of the world’s largest independent—and privacy-friendly—platforms.
Together, we’ll deliver even more value to our customers by continuing our work of fueling the entire mobile app transition cycle across user acquisition, engagement, monetization, and analytics.
Growing with you
Over the last ten years, we’ve expanded our footprint beyond our Redwood City, CA, headquarters. Now, with offices in London, Berlin, Tokyo, and beyond, we’re positioned to meet you wherever you and your users are.
Through our Liftoff Gives program, our colleagues can use their skills to give back and help others in their communities.
