Senior Product Manager

Posted 2 months ago

Play Octopus is the premier rideshare entertainment and video advertising platform. We place interactive tablets in the backseats of rideshare vehicles to improve the driver and passenger experience. Our tablets are connected to cellular at all times and we control 100% of the content. Currently, we have games, ads, and information about the driver and our platform. That said, the tablets are essentially a blank slate and we are continually experimenting with new content to further improve the driver/passenger experience, as well as monetize this valuable out-of-home advertising space.
