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.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
As programmatic continues to become more central to brand advertising efforts, it’s more important than ever to understand brand strategy, to get in front of the client and to become their marketing and execution partner. The Commercial Activation team plays a crucial role in this process by partnering with commercial stakeholders from across the company to examine the business and provide high-quality service, knowledge and materials that are coherent, compelling and concise, and that cover macro to micro topics.

Think Strategically. Be a leading member of the team that identifies and analyzes business objectives and develops a strategy to clearly communicate The Trade Desk’s value to an advertiser’s business.
Know the Business. Become very familiar with The Trade Desk’s platform, product offering, resources, competitive advantages and, more generally, programmatic strategies.
Be a Storyteller. Leverage Trade Desk’s industry-leading position and proprietary technology to, clearly and succinctly, articulate how we can help contribute to our clients’ health and growth.
At the core, you will have a knack for synthesizing complex solutions into simplified sales narratives. And you will be a natural leader in the sales process with an eye towards collaboration and revenue generation.
