At Pointlogic, you work in an exciting media and marketing world, which combines creativity, mathematics, econometrics and marketing analytics to maximum effect.

Pointlogic products are linked via a generic effectiveness chain covering all major aspects of the marketing cycle. We design, develop and customise marketing decision-support tools for each element of this cycle. These tools are applied to a range of media problems, such as the optimal allocation of advertising budgets, the analysis of media campaign effectiveness and tactical budget planning across offline and online media channels.

Who are our clients?

Our activities are globally oriented: we have product users in more than 80 countries around the globe. With our tools, we support the decisions of large advertisers, media owners and media agencies, both on a tactical and strategic level.

Who are we?

We are a team of approximately 90 energetic, highly educated people with backgrounds in mathematics/econometrics, software development and IT, business administration and market research.
