Handling over 600 billion queries per day (more than 100X the query volume of search globally), our platform operates at unprecedented scale. We have also built something even stronger and more valuable: an award-winning culture based on trust, empathy, collaboration, and ownership. By working together across typical dividing lines, we are better as a team than any of us could be apart.

Come and see why Fortune Magazine consistently ranks The Trade Desk among best small-medium sized workplaces globally.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

We are looking for a driven 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 will be technical, driven, think creatively, and has great collaboration and communication skills. 

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 accomplish this by teaming up with designers, developers, product managers and business stakeholders to create delightful, engaging experiences. 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 performance oriented products. This can include campaign optimization algorithms, forecasting and performance prediction, and growing our AI platform. As a Product Manager for performance, you will be working closely with stakeholders across our UX/UI, Data Partnerships, Data Science, and Engineering Teams - helping think through tradeoffs in workflow implementations, visualizations, model approaches, and customer impact. In addition to those teams, 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:

• 4+ years of Product Management experience

• Background in software development, engineering, or data science / analytics a plus 

• 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 

• Ability to solve complex, technical problems with creative solutions while managing tradeoffs

• Strong interest in what computing can do -- a passion for technology and how to apply that to problems of massive scale

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

“We aim to catch, test, and fix all points of failure before we sign off on a new integration. We’re also encouraged to think critically about all potential complications and then solve for them with whatever stylistic approach we prefer – all the while facilitating exciting partnerships with our clients. That sounds pretty cool to me.

What's something quirky about your company?

We did go-kart racing once. It was a lot of fun. We went downhill biking once, which was insane. There's also a lot of other casual things we'll do, like hold barbecues in the office every once in awhile. One of my co-workers is a very skilled barbecuer, so he'll make some barbecue and we'll do that for lunch and all hang out together
