Global Programmatic Trading Powerhouse

Soho, New York


Are you fed up pitching and finding it difficult to differentiate yourself from your competitors? Do you feel you’re selling a similar programmatic solution as the rest? Do you want to bring a genuine solution to agencies and solve a major industry problem when buying programmatic media? Let’s speak.


The Opportunity

Founded in the early 2000s by an individual commonly regarded as one of the greatest minds in AdTech and the programmatic industry, you’ll rarely get the chance to work in a business so deeply engrained within advertising.

This hire will be integral to the continued growth of this innovative product and be responsible for commercialising this product in the major network agencies and independents.

Working within the brand-new office space in the heart of Silicon Alley, you couldn’t ask for a more perfect location, with Greenwich Village, East Village and Lower Manhattan only a short distance away if you want a change of scenery.


Your Role

  • Ensuring all your media agency connections are up to date with the product and educating them on the benefit it brings to them when buying media programmatically

  • Conduct frequent in-person meetings with demos of the platform and working with programmatic trading teams to ensure they are purchasing through the product

  • Maintain a deep understanding of the agencies business drivers, metrics and product vision, uncovering ways in which the business can strategically solve their problems

  • Working with the C-suites within the agency holding groups on setting best practice on how the products should be used across the teams

  • Be subject matter expert for both the business, the platform and how it can be best utilised by the partners



Your Profile

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent

  • Excellent interpersonal networking and client-facing skills

  • 8-10 years of experience in the online advertising industry

  • Deep relationships within media network agencies and independents

  • Solid understanding of OpenRTB trading and its best practices

  • A genuine passion for technology and the space

  • Deep knowledge of the programmatic landscape and the players within it
