More About Adlib

Like many tech companies, Adlib started small, in response to a problem our co-founders experienced as business leaders. They recognized a need for rapidly generated solutions to leverage the value in unstructured data. But unlike most tech companies, those original co-founders continue to be directly involved in the daily operations of the company as CEO, R&D Lead and VP Customer Success. They’ve built Adlib on three pillars of strength that continue to measure our success:

  1. Product innovation. We’re building solutions to client document and data management problems, organically and strategically.
  2. Customer relationships. We truly have a dedicated focus on creating a positive customer experience that stands out from everyone else.
  3. Engaged and passionate teams. That’s the most important to us!

While we focus on our three pillars of strength, we live and breathe our values.

  • We strive to be the best place to work
    • We are a team – professional, not house league
    • We have a shared goal – to win
    • We have high expectations and pull our own weight
  • We manage our high performance players better than other teams
    • We are changing the game
    • We are *the* best at solving customer’s problems
    • We’re creating new best practices
  • We are on a kick-ass global adventure together
    • We make decisions with the destination and team in mind
    • We’re prepared for the unpredictable – changes and detours
  • We’re going to have fun

Our employees tell us we excel at transparency and work-life balance. And while those may be buzzwords used to attract attention, we actually live them. How do we know this? A significant portion of our team has been here for longer than 10 years. In the tech industry, that’s rare. We also have people who come back to us because they miss the culture, opportunity for growth and our team spirit.

But, having said that, we aren’t perfect at everything. We’re continuously working on change management We don’t have all of the processes nailed down that we’d like to, but that means that this is the place to get in at the next stage of evolution and be part of a growing team on multiple levels.

Adlib Software is revolutionizing the way organizations think about their content - join us to be part of that change. Express your interest here or follow us on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

Adlib seeks to inspire and nurture the human spirit – we understand that each person brings a distinct life experience to the table. Embracing diversity not only enhances our work culture but drives business success. Adlib encourages applications from everybody, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
