A bit about us
GroundTruth is the leading location-based marketing and advertising technology company. Sitting at the convergence of offline and online data, GroundTruth delivers a unique data set called “visitation data,” which allows brands, agencies, SMBs, and non-profits to drive high-performing business outcomes (ROI). GroundTruth activates this data through a suite of performance products and services via their self-serve advertising platform, through managed services, or tailored partnerships. GroundTruth has built proprietary filtering processes that combines our BlueprintTM contextual mapping technology, owned & operated properties, along with 3rd party mobile location data, together yielding over 30B visits annually.

We believe that innovative technology starts with the best talent and have been ranked one of Ad Age’s Best Places to Work for two years in a row (2021 & 2022). Learn more about the perks of joining our team here.

All of our internships are paid and will run from End of May/Early June through End of August/Early September.  We are looking to create a well-structured program where interns will augment their work experience, hone important skills, develop career goals and establish connections that will prove useful throughout their careers.  GroundTruth will, in turn, learn from a pool of motivated individuals who bring fresh thinking and innovation to our workplace. Diversity will be a priority in our internship program and will include but not be limited to Race, Ethnicity & Socio Economic status along with sexual orientation, gender identity, age, and disability.
