WHO WE ARE:

The Trade Desk is leading the way to the future of marketing by changing how advertising is bought and sold. Working with the largest brands and agencies around the world, our technology platform helps consumers discover products they want by enabling advertisers to target and reach them on the right channels at the right time. 

Employees join The Trade Desk to discover opportunity, contribute to our customers’ success, and be part of building the future of marketing. You’ll work with creative, compassionate, and collaborative colleagues that share a passion for making the internet better for all – a combination that simply can't be beat.

When you join The Trade Desk, you’re joining a family. We have open space work environments, adjustable sitting/standing desks, and a celebrated open-door policy (at all levels) that can inspire out-of-the-box solutions and camaraderie among your coworkers. The competitive compensation packages, full benefits, stock options, and additional discounted stock purchase opportunities, catered lunches, and offsite team building activities may cause slight to severe jealousy among your peers.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

We are looking for a driven Principal-level 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 WILL BE DOING:

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 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.

WHAT YOU BRING TO THE TABLE:
  • Passion -- your work matters. Your features matter. You care and give your all.
  • Grit -- sometimes solutions take creative thinking and multiple iterations. You try many different approaches the right answer.
  • Collaborative -- the best PMs are not necessarily those with the best ideas, but those that ensure the right thing gets done.
  • Selfless -- Product Management is about making sure the best work gets done by the team, and making sure they share in the credit.
  • Empathy -- As a PM you are the voice of the customer and need to represent them from a position of deep understanding.
  • Entrepreneur -- as a PM you need to get out there and convince others of your ideas
  • Excellent communication/presentation skills both in large and small groups.
  • A sustained track record of making significant, self-directed, and end-to-end contributions to large and impactful software projects in a Senior Product Manager role
  • Ability to solve complex problems with creative solutions
  • Experience in driving partnership/collaboration that result in win-win solutions

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

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.
