Learn about the initiatives that are helping us build the perfect team of mobile marketing experts.
At Jampp, we’re making programmatic advertising easy for the most ambitious mobile businesses across the globe. As the mobile industry is constantly redefining what campaign success looks like, this is a challenging mission that requires the perfect team of experts.
In this article, we dive into some of the initiatives that are helping us develop our team and culture, keeping Jamppers connected and working towards the same mission:
1️⃣Defining your company values
2️⃣Turning your hiring process into a team effort
3️⃣Creating a comprehensive onboarding process
4️⃣Hosting amazing in-person and virtual company events
Company values shape the way in which we work as a team. This is why they play such a key role, not only in our hiring process, but also in how we work, give feedback, let go, and promote Jamppers. We encourage Jamppers to think of our values not just as words that are written on our website but rather as the behaviors and attitudes that make up our day-to-day life.
Skills can be learned, but values shape the way in which your company works as a team. Our core values guide our hiring process, they represent the attitudes we reward through our Jampp Awards, and they help us set the right goals to keep growing as a company.
Company values aren’t static, and when a company evolves, its company values should reflect that evolution.
2021 was a momentous year for Jampp, we became part of the Affle group, and we rolled out a new look and feel for our brand. After all these changes, we wanted to make sure our values continue to represent the stage we’re in as a company today, so we decided to iterate our values.

Once you have company values that define the types of attitudes you value in your team, it’s time to find the right candidates.
At Jampp, we’re always hiring, but we don’t just hire anyone—we put a lot of effort into understanding whether a candidate is the right person for the role.
1️⃣Make team members part of the process: it’s not only about having managers join at every stage of the hiring process, it’s also about involving all team members—whether it’s helping to create the perfect job description, find potential candidates, review applications, or give feedback.
2️⃣Train your interviewers: at Jampp, every team member that participates in the hiring process is previously trained in our Interviewer Certification Program to make sure to deliver the best experience for candidates.
3️⃣Be transparent: maintain an open and thorough communication with every candidate (in return, we expect them to do the same!). We strive to keep everyone updated on their progress and answer any questions about next steps, internal dynamics, overall feedback, and more.
4️⃣Don’t make unilateral decisions: when it comes to making a decision, not everyone might share the same opinion, but every voice matters: make sure to consider the point of view of all the different people involved in the hiring process.
5️⃣Always remember your company values: expertise might be important, but the right attitude ultimately wins over the perfect skills. Stick to your company values to understand which candidate has the qualities that will make them a great match for the company.

Onboarding processes have evolved over the past few years, with many companies transitioning to remote or hybrid working models. Every onboarding process should be designed to help new hires become true members of the team. While everybody loves a welcome kit with cool company swag, there’s a lot more that companies can do to make newcomers understand how each team contributes to company goals.

At Jampp, our teams are distributed across different regions, from the Americas to Spain, Singapore, and even South Africa. While we are remote-first and we’ve always made an effort for distributed teams to meet, we usually rely on a mix of both virtual and in-person events to keep our entire team connected.
