Hulu runs one of the largest video ad serving systems on the Internet, with thousands of advertisers and over a billion ads served per month. Before being served to a Hulu viewer, each one of these ads goes through a sophisticated workflow involving sales and planning, targeting, trafficking, and quality control, to deliver maximum value to our advertisers while maintaining an engaging overall experience for Hulu viewers. As the biggest video ad platform in the US, we have to create a lot of technology and a lot of approaches to maximize efficiency, performance, quality, and flexibility. We utilize a diverse array of languages and frameworks to tackle problems ranging from predicting traffic patterns and advertising inventory to building custom innovative advertising formats.
