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.

The Finance & Strategy team plays a critical role in analyzing and implementing The Trade Desk’s financial and strategic initiatives. The Finance & Strategy Analyst will join a lean team, headed by the SVP of FP&A to assist in modeling, analysis, project management and presentation of critical company operating data. We are looking for a self-starter who not only possesses brilliant analytical skills but also communicates findings confidently and articulately to a wide variety of stakeholders.

WHAT YOU'LL DO:

  • Build and maintain complex company operating models with multiple scenarios to evaluate hiring, investment and other operational initiatives
  • Collaborate with the FP&A team and department / regional heads to facilitate short- and long-term budgeting and reporting processes
  • Summarize key findings into clear and concise presentations to executives and other key business personnel
  • Collaborate with various finance, operations, and client services teams to investigate strategic initiatives and use quantitative analysis to support executive decision-making processes
  • Prepare materials for financial review meetings, highlighting variances to forecasts and using insights to drive forecasting improvements and operating decisions
  • Perform financial due diligence for various corporate finance transactions
  • Identify key performance metrics and design reports and dashboards to track insights and drive operating decisions
  • Create presentations for Board of Directors’ meetings, investor presentations, and other high-profile meetings
  • Assist the Investor Relations team with a range of activities, as needed
  • Continuously take on additional responsibility to improve processes, reporting and procedures, and take on other duties as needed to assist the team

WHO YOU ARE:

  • Bachelor's degree in an applicable field (finance, accounting, economics, etc.)
  • 2+ years of experience in a sophisticated financial role (investment banking, private equity, venture capital, or corporate finance)
  • Strong understanding of corporate finance and accounting concepts
  • Proven track record of building meaningful financial models and ad hoc analyses to distill complex problems into digestible insights
  • Excellent communicator (both written and verbal), with the ability to present to senior management in a clear, concise manner
  • Ability to collaborate cross-functionally and prioritize tasks effectively in a fast-paced environment
  • Exceptional analytical acumen & attention to detail
  • Experience in digital media, internet or data companies preferred
  • Strong business sense, with the ability to understand changing industry forces and focus on relevant KPIs
  • Experience with or interest in learning database (SQL, Vertica, etc.), data visualization software (Tableau, etc.) and financial planning software (Oracle)
  • High personal and professional integrity, with a willingness to dig into anything and everything to support the business

Location

Our NY office is in the Grace Building with sweeping views of the city, Bryant Park and close to lots of great restaurants.

An Insider's view of The Trade Desk

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Everyone I've met in person and virtually feels like a friend I've known them for quite some time. The culture in the New York office truly encourages everyone to bring their whole selves to work. The diversity of thought and backgrounds professionally and personally is unlike any other place that I've worked at.

Katy

Manager, Global Employer Brand Marketing

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.

André

Sr. Director, Technical Account Management
