The Role and Responsibilities
The Senior Account Manager role will be a critical partner in both supporting sales and working externally with clients, while driving process and execution cross-functionally with internal teams. This role will differ from a conventional Account Manager position, in that the ideal candidate will possess not only a firm grasp of the needs and methods of Tier 1 performance advertisers, but both the sales and operational savvy to help build and rapidly scale our performance marketing team from the ground up.
The expectations placed on the Senior Account Manager role within the Performance & Direct Response team are largely similar to that of the broader Client Services team at Roku but will have a few key differences. As a member of this team, you will need to bring a breadth of experience working with brands & advertisers who are hyper focused on outcome-based media buying and the methods used to measure. The ideal candidate is highly comfortable and familiar communicating with advertisers about their measurement objectives, recommending attribution models and measurement solutions, and providing a consultative perspective to performance marketers about how Roku supports their objectives.

This individual will have a passion for data, process and customer success and will be closely aligned with other client services team members and cross-functional groups.
