Desirable Experience: * A proven track record in a similar role managing and structuring complex products, ideally in hi-tech, ad-tech/mar-tech background preferred. * You will have worked in an audience research or analytics environment, and understand the key concepts involved in DMP/CMPs, survey-based research, syndicated research tools, consumer panels. You will be familiar with identity resolution, data onboarding, enrichment and export and key data science concepts in audience management. * An appreciation of the key concepts and marketplace drivers in the privacy realm around the world including key regulatory change (GDPR, CCPA etc.), and an understanding of the key drivers at work across media owners and technology platforms. * A working knowledge of how media and creative agencies use audience-based insight at the strategy, planning and activation stage of campaigns. * Demonstrated performance in a product management senior leadership role with a minimum of 10+ plus years in a senior management role * You have driven product adoption efforts across large-scale globally dispersed internal teams. * Excellent people management and proven communication skills that positively impacted a globally dispersed team. Desirable Skills: * Exceptional consensus builder – you can identify common ground where others can't and bring diverse groups together to find new opportunities to work together and unlock value. * World class communicator –you make complex things simple. * Strategic thinker – you can look at the market and see five moves ahead. Ideally you will be highly commercial, with diverse experience in business that helps you anticipate market and competitor change. * Leader of diverse teams – you command the respect of technical and non-technical teams with varied expertise, despite not knowing most of their domains as well as they do. Your integrity, strategic vision, domain knowledge and interpersonal skills will earn you their trust and followership. * A confident operator – you are happy working in a matrix, across time zones, with all sorts of personalities. You thrive on challenge, constructive feedback and take setbacks in your stride. * Experience working in an agile product development organization – you know how to make an agile team effective, how to manage a backlog, how to set OKRs, how to make squads sing.
