Accenture and Net Gravity
After graduation, Mohan worked at Accenture. In 1997, he joined a startup called Net Gravity, becoming a key figure in the company’s operations and greatly expanding its prominence.
In 1997, Net Gravity was acquired by DoubleClick. Mohan moved from California to the company’s headquarters in New York. In the next several years, he gradually became more involved in central business affairs within the company. He became the vice president of business operations.
In 2003, he returned to Stanford to pursue his MBA. While he was at Stanford, DoubleClick began to face serious issues stemming from its acquisition of Abacus Direct in 1999. The merger was infact annulled by Hellman & Friedman, who acquired DoubleClick and split off Abacus Direct from it.
Hellman & Friedman requested that longtime executive David Rosenblatt become CEO of DoubleClick in the wake of the company’s partition. Rosenblatt accepted this offer and also enlisted Mohan after he acquired his MBA in 2005, under Mohan’s conditions that he would stay in California.
Together, Rosenblatt and Mohan devised a plan to orient DoubleClick towards being a company vested upon advertising exchange, core ad technology situations, and an extensive ad network. This plan was outlined in a 400-slide PowerPoint presentation, said by those who created or have seen it to still have influence on current business plans by Google. The plan was presented to the board of DoubleClick and Hellman & Friedman in December 2005, who approved it.
On April 13, 2007, Google agreed to acquire DoubleClick for US$3.1 billion. Google executive Susan Wojcicki largely orchestrated this action.

While at Google, Mohan managed the company’s 2010 US$85 million acquisition of Invite Media. Before moving to YouTube, he was senior vice president of display and video ads at Google.
In 2011, Rosenblatt, who was now a board member of Twitter, attempted to hire Mohan as chief product officer. Though Mohan nearly accepted, Google paid him US$ 100 million in order to remain at the company. A former Facebook senior executive also stated that he attempted to hire Mohan while he was at Google.
