Thanksgiving is so much more than an occasion to celebrate with family and friends, watch football, and eat turkey. It’s a moment for us to express our gratitude for everything that make our lives great, enabling us to come to work each day and build powerful technology to make advertising better. This holiday season, our employees wanted to share with you what they are thankful for.

We hope that this gives you a glimpse of the passionate, innovative, and creative minds that work here at 50onRed. From all of us at the office, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.

I’m also thankful for being healthy as I look forward to welcoming my first baby in the New Year and having a supportive network, both personally and at work. I’m also excited to have my parents visit from Norway for a few weeks over the holidays!”
