The Trade Desk is changing the way global brands and their agencies advertise to audiences around the world. How? 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.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
In any organization, compensation efficacy is paramount to success. The Compensation Operations Analyst will work with all members of the global business organization, addressing questions relating to compensation and preparing various analyses. Ultimately, this individual will be responsible for reviewing, summarizing, and proposing changes to compensation plans across The Trade Desk’s teams, while simultaneously building strong relationships and serving as the primary contact point for all things compensation.


WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING:

  • Manage internal employee account assignments and rates to ensure alignment of performance and compensation schemes
  • Prepare detailed monthly and quarterly analyses that explain employees’ variance from compensation targets
  • Serve as direct contact for all internal teams to guide, analyze, and explain questions relating to compensation and bonuses
  • Review and respond to internal Jira tickets, following up as necessary, and resolving or escalating when appropriate
  • Create executive-ready summaries of key findings and proposed changes to rates and compensation plans
  • Communicate extensively with business team members to understand and document drivers of account performance
  • Create and templatize recurring analyses and presentations for global leadership
  • Document internal bonus policies and processes through creation of Confluence articles
  • Assist with various ad hoc projects and analyses relating to compensation and spend
  • Other duties as assigned

WHAT YOU BRING TO THE TABLE:

  • 2+ years of experience in compensation, revenue, sales support, operations, or related field
  • Outstanding communication, customer service, time management and problem-solving skills
  • Experience creating executive-level presentations and summaries
  • Intermediate to advanced Excel skills are required; experience with SQL or other relational databases a plus
  • Knowledge and experience working in compensation software (Anaplan preferred, but can be learned on the job)
  • Ability to handle sensitive information with keen attention to detail and accuracy
  • Self-motivated and driven; confident when working independently, but a strong team player
  • Strong interpersonal skills and interest in operations, analytics, or compensation
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, team environment, and to build strong working relationships within all levels of the organization

An Insider's view of The Trade Desk

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our most recent Connected TV (CTV) launch was exciting because CTV is a big industry game changer. A lot of people from the London office worked on the project, so I know about the problems we had to solve in order to get us to the point where we could push it live. I’m excited to see how well it takes off.

Kruna

Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Unrelenting curiosity. When you’re given a problem or task, you’re so curious that you become obsessive about solving it. I always know that I’ve found great engineers when they refuse to let go of a problem I’ve given them until they figure it out. This quality proves especially useful for a lot of the problems we work on.

Tim

Senior Manager, Engineering

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

During the Engineering Palooza event three years ago, a group of 25 engineers, spent a week in Boulder just brainstorming ideas and talking about our next-gen infrastructure. The sheer brain power in that room was absolutely amazing! Since then, the team has grown, ideas have expanded, and we’re tackling more complex problems than ever before.

Arvind

Principal Lead Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Those moments usually involve us looking at vast volumes of data to answer a question or inform a decision. A few examples are investigating how a client uses a certain feature, so we can build a new one to increase efficiency, or helping partners write an attribution model or build a custom report, so they can gain new insights from their data.

Sr. Director, Technical Account Management
