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.

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.

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.
