The Trade Desk is changing the way global brands and their agencies advertise to audiences around the world. How? With a media-buying platform that helps brands deliver a more insightful and relevant ad experience for consumers — and sets a new standard for global reach, accuracy, and transparency.

So if you’re talented, driven, creative, and hungry to bring something entirely new and wildly ambitious into the world (and have some fun doing it), then we want to talk.

We are looking for a driven Principal-level UX focused Product Manager who has the ability to learn, convince, prototype, build, measure, and refine the next generation of online advertising tools in a lean/agile development environment. The ideal candidate has worked extensively in partnership with User Experience teams in the past and is an advocate for their product’s users.

WHAT YOU'LL DO:

As the voice of our customers globally, you’ll deeply understand how to make users’ lives better through software. One of our core product principles is “do the right thing”. We expect you to represent our company and exercise good judgement, by balancing the needs of our diverse agency clients. You will accomplish this by teaming up with designers, developers, product managers and business stakeholders to create delightful, engaging experiences. You will gather customer requirements, design prototypes, prioritize and scope releases that represent customers’ needs, then work with the rest of the engineering team to build those products and iterate on them over time.

In this role you will own the roadmap and execution for the campaign lifecycle. This includes campaign setup, optimization, through campaign completion and reporting. You will be working with stakeholders all across the globe to bring our shared vision for programmatic advertising to life.

WHO YOU ARE:

Vision

You can imagine the future, understand where we need to go, and articulate it to the rest of your team. While your execution focus is on the work in front of you, your planning focus is on the months, quarters, and years ahead to make sure we’re steering the ship in a good direction.

User Experience

You are able to conduct focus groups when useful to gather insights into behavior and interests. You are an advocate and dedicated proponent of user centered design. Are able to use survey tools successfully and without bias. You understand how to use and apply tools like a heuristic evaluations and cognitive walkthroughs. Every customer experience has a beginning, a middle and an end. An a UX expert you can recognize this and strive for excellence in the experience in each phase. You are unwilling to leave roadblocks in the UX or unanswered questions.

Project Leadership

You can pick out what's important from the noise. In a sea of opportunity, you zero in on what should be a priority and drive towards the work that will deliver the best results. 

Passion

You hold yourself to a high standard of excellence and care deeply about the work you deliver. You're willing to champion your ideas, even in the face of adversity.

People First

We want self-aware people who can engage in a healthy exchange of ideas but understand that people always come first. We want someone we can celebrate our successes with, lament our losses, and that pushes us to always keep an unrelenting focus on our customers.

Execution

We are only as good as the impact we make. You think about the value you're delivering, rather than just the work you're doing. You know that shipping is crucial, and your customers have a right to expect the best from you. You have a track record of successfully delivering products and technical solutions with strong outcomes for your customers.

Analytical

Being data-driven is at the core of our company's DNA. Digging deep into data and numbers is a comfortable place for you, and you've demonstrated an understanding of what insights will have the largest impact to an organization.

Technical

You're not the one building things, but you absolutely have to understand how they work. You're comfortable ramping up on new technology and can have meaningful discussions about implementation trade-offs with developers.

Qualifications:

  • 10+ years of Product Management experience or equivalent.
  • Masters degree in business or related field preferred, with a preference toward design background
  • Deep experience in working with UX teams to deliver large scale products
  • A sustained track record of making significant, self-directed, and end-to-end contributions to large and impactful software projects
  • Excellent communication/presentation skills both in large and small groups.

An Insider's view of The Trade Desk

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work life balance is my favorite thing about the Trade Desk. Everyone has different motivations and methods for getting work done, and the Trade Desk rewards those differences. Output is the primary value rather than the perception of how many hours you put in. This dynamic has given me a lot of balance between work and life in my last 5 years here

James

Product Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I love working on projects that challenge me and make me learn everyday. There hasn't been a day where I haven't learned something new, whether it be the challenges we are facing on our team or trying to understand what other teams are working on. It's always fun to be working with amazing people who are always there to help when needed

What makes someone successful on your team?

They hold our customer constantly before them. We only win when our customers win. And they possess the courage and conviction that we are transforming the industry to make that happen.

John

Principal Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Thinking client first and focusing on where the real long-term value exists. In this fast-growing company and ever-changing industry of Ad Tech, there are too many opportunities to invest in all of them. The most successful team members deliver short term value that is on a path to long term success.
