Together, we will accelerate our shared vision of helping publishers regain control of their monetization and make quick, informed decisions to grow their businesses.”

Founded in 2014 and headquartered in New York City, RTK is a programmatic infrastructure and ad operations company dedicated to making ad tech more efficient. RTK provides publishers with an integrated user interface to configure, install, and implement a complete header bidding solution. In addition, the company’s reporting and analytics capabilities are extremely fast and flexible, driving better yield management.
