As we officially celebrate one full year of working from home--during a world-wide pandemic--we can also officially state that it's been a lemon of a year. But you already knew that. You might not know, however, that Pathmatics has an another, equally monumental anniversary to celebrate this month.
March marks 10 years as a full-fledged incorporation, thanks to our fearless leaders Gabe and Tom, who joined forces in 2011. Back in those days, Explorer was called AdRoutes, and Pathmatics was called Yieldmetrics...until 2013, when the name changed to Adomic...until 2015, when the name changed again (for the better, we think).
Watch as some of our earliest employees look back on 10 years of Pathmatics Magic
As you can see, we've accomplished a lot over the past 10 years, bringing you a first-ever look at social ad intelligence for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, expanded geos as we work toward worldwide digital advertising coverage, and, most recently, a new taxonomy to bring even deeper insights to brands and agencies around the globe.
But of course, we've hit other milestones too. We've listed them here, in reverse order of importance 😉.
Patents held: 7
Advertisers mapped: 180,947
Sites tracked: 22,828
Impressions estimated: 69 trillion
Creatives captured: 158.4 million
Trees planted via our opt in panelists: 147,873
LA offices in the same three block radius: 3
Trips Tom took to the coffee machine for a refill: 7,830
Fresh cups of coffee left at the coffee machine: 1,174
Mario Kart wins by Gabe: 64
We couldn't have done any of this without the vision of our fearless leaders, Gabe (CEO) and Tom (CTO), who together have built our team into something we can all truly be proud of. And speaking of the team, all of this could not be possible without our hard-working, data-loving, smart, and dedicated team.
So with that, let's raise a glass of lemonade (spiked, if you wish), to 10 years down and many 10's of years more to go. Cheers, Pathmatics!
