At seedtag our mission is to change how online advertising is done. We are looking for talented engineers to help us develop our technology and change the world of digital advertising together. The seedtag platform allows some of the largest online publishers to get the most out of their images. Our engineers face massive scalability challenges to be able to process millions of requests with very strict timing requirements. We apply machine learning algorithms to the content of every page to achieve human-like content understanding and provide the best possible ad contextualization in the industry.

Founded by two ex-Googlers in 2014, up to this day we proudly count over 100 employees in 7 countries.
