An Insider's view of NextRoll


How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I highly recommend our company to family, best friends, and anyone looking for a place where a healthy culture is as important as a balance sheet. Our company offers many supplemental programs to help employees maintain work-life balance and improve their mental and physical health.


New Business Account Executive

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

As NextRoll is on a journey from previously being a media-only business to a full SaaS-based marketing platform for B2B and B2C customers, we’ve embarked on opportunities to take our data science and machine learning teams' talents and apply them to brand new areas in the MarTech space.


VP of Product

How does the company support your career growth?

From providing programs that bring joy to the employees to promoting ongoing education reimbursement, as an employee, you can tap into many ways to be even more successful professionally and personally. We hire incredible people who bring unique talents to the organization, and NextRoll intentionally invests in ways to help everyone grow.


Sr. Manager, New Business Sales (Strategic)

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We can all get caught in the “what” and “when” and spend little time on the “why.” Flag planting can be very powerful and helps teams do their best. Leadership is a lot about outlining the “why,” bringing the inspiration to be on the journey and coaching along the way. Building trust with one team mindset is also key.


President of AdRoll

What is your vision for the company?

As we embark on the journey ahead, our incredible culture will be front and center for me. I'm committed to listening, learning, and tapping into the collective brilliance of our Rollers so that together, we can write the next chapters of our NextRoll story.
