TAPTAP Networks sits at the epicentre of innovation in the marketing and advertising world. As mobile advertising and marketing technology multinational corporation we specialize in data-driven branding strategies for large global brands. Our mobile native heritage dates back to 2010 when we started bridging the gap between offline and online through user data profiling, context and attribution.                                                                                              
TAPTAP developed the Sonata Platform to lead the evolution of a world with increasingly blurring lines between advertising and marketing and offline vs. online through mobile-powered data. Through Sonata TAPTAP has achieved global scale serving clients in over 70 countries through its 7 offices in Europe and the Americas.

What we do:
Sonata‚Äôs technology platform supports a real-time bidding system that handles over 10 billion events every day (vs ~ 3 billion daily Google search queries), a reporting system that aggregates and analyzes terabytes of data in real-time, and a learning system that applies machine learning and business intelligence techniques to over 40 petabytes of data. These systems all work in harmony so that Sonata can serve the right advertisement to the right user at the right time.                                                                                                                                                                     
The Bidder and Data team sits at the core of our technology as the key decision making agent for our systems. We research and develop the algorithms and models that make our software intelligent, as well as implementing, scaling, and maintaining the code that powers our production systems.
