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.


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.


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.


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.


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
