The Company

Founded by two MIT alumni, TVision Insights is a venture-backed attention measurement company headquartered in Boston, MA with offices in New York and Tokyo.

We are pioneering the way brands, agencies, TV networks, and OTT platforms determine the true value of their video content and advertising. The company’s core technology measures 'eyes on screen' attention, the single most accurate way to measure exposure to video content.

Our solution offers a critical insight to brands and agencies targeting audiences in the universe of many screens. We do this by providing a mission-critical dashboard and attention currency to our customers - some of the most well-known brands and networks globally. Our growth and innovation have been recognized by The New York Times, Advertising Age, AdWeek, MediaPost, and Forbes.

An Insider's view of TVision Insights

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Richard Branson nailed it on the head when he said "Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients."

We believe firmly in a healthy work-life balance. Gone are the days of a traditional 9-5 work schedule. We offer flex hours, unlimited PTO and work from home options.
