Demand Planning Executive, Europe
Factual’s mission is to make data accessible to everyone. We believe that high quality, accurate data should be accessible to every developer, entrepreneur, business, and organisation. To make this goal a reality, we end up taking on unusual problems with small, focused teams made up of highly motivated people.
We integrate with the largest players in the advertising ecosystem. The demand team works closely with these agencies, advertisers and strategic partners to make sure Factual’s data runs seamlessly to meet their goals.
