LiveRamp is the leading data connectivity platform. We believe connected data has the power to change the world. Our platform powers insights and experiences centered around the needs of real people, and in ways that keep the Internet open for all. LiveRampers thrive on building together with curiosity and humility—and have a good bit of fun along the way. We’re always looking for smart, kind, and creative people to grow our team and impact.

Mission: LiveRamp makes it safe and easy for businesses to use data effectively.

The Outbound Platform Integration Team is a crucial point of execution within the LiveRamp systems.

  • OPI is responsible for shipping data out of LiveRamp. We process and deliver over 250 TB every day to over 500 integrations, consisting of about a trillion records. 
  • We abstract away the outside world from the rest of LiveRamp and allow other teams to produce data in a single standardized format, which we then convert into whatever our partners and customers expect - whether that’s a CSV file dropped into an S3 bucket, JSON blobs streamed into their API, or anything in between.

  • We take data ethics seriously throughout our pipeline.
