|Founded||2005 (as Amobee Media Services)|
|Headquarters||Redwood City, California, United States|
Amobee is a mobile advertising technology company providing services for large advertisers, publishers and operators. Amobee has a proprietary platform that supports existing and emerging mobile ad formats on any mobile, internet-enabled device, including gaming platforms.
Amobee has run mobile advertising campaigns worldwide, serving customers such as eBay, Nokia, Skype, and Telefónica.
Amobee was founded in May 2005 by Gil Shulman, Saul Rurka and Zohar Levkovitz. It went live in June 2005. One year later, the company recruited Roger Cameron Wood, a mobile industry veteran, who established the company's U.S. presence in San Francisco.
In 2009, Amobee purchased media company RingRingMedia in order to expand their advertising customer base, enabling mobile media owners to sell advertising space to companies on a collective basis. At the time of acquisition, RingRingMedia bought more than $2 million (£1.2 million) of mobile media a month, serving more than 4 billion ad impressions a month.
In June 2014, Amobee acquired two of its competitors; Adconion for $235M and Kontera for $150M, in an attempt to consolidate its market position.
