The Challenge

Founded in Los Angeles, California, Rubicon Project has one of the world's largest big data and cloud computing systems, capable of processing trillions of advertising transactions in minutes each month. Leading publishers have used Rubicon's advanced technology to transact with brands worldwide. As a technology leader, Rubicon Project understood the importance of choosing the best solution for any business requirement. When the company identified a need for a series of around 20 microsites, they turned to Curious Minds.

Deep dive

Initially, we provided monthly Word Press maintenance services to Rubicon Project for its primary business websites. At first, Rubicon expected to use WordPress for its microsites, which contained the same core content targeted to different audiences. However, the deeper we delved into the project’s scope and needs, it became clear that a different approach was needed. While WordPress development is our core offering, we have extensive experience in a variety of web applications. The solutions we provide for our clients are aligned to each clients’ individual strategy.

Recognizing a new approach

In this case, we recognized that a WordPress-centric approach would cause Rubicon Project unnecessary time and money. Since the planned microsites were simple and had consistent content, Rubicon Project did not need individual dynamic sites built in WordPress.

Effective and efficient strategy

We advised Rubicon Project to create a series of static microsites generated dynamically via a headless CMS and static site generator. Not only would this approach save money and effort, but it also provides a better mobile experience, strong performance, and enhanced security.

From Slow to Streamlined

Using a headless CMS approach, Rubicon avoids the cumbersome task of manually updating 20+ static microsites one-by-one. The Rubicon Project gained a streamlined microsite management process via its headless CMS. Thanks to the static site generator, any changes can be made in one location and deployed quickly across all its static microsites with ease. An SSG can then pull data via an API, generate static HTML pages, and distribute pages to Rubicon’s microsites. With this, users benefit from up-to-date content and the efficient, mobile-friendly performance of static sites. Learn more about Curious Minds Media's Laravel development services.

    • Working with Curious Minds has been a real pleasure! When we maintained our own WordPress site, we were always blocked by lack of internal resources. Outsourcing everything to Curious Minds was a great decision. Shannon is very responsive and his work always passes the very high technical standards of our team. We trust them completely with our company's blog.
