Operational Initiatives Manager

| Greater NYC Area

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:

As the Operational Initiatives Manager on our Commercial Operations team, you will be responsible for supporting large-scale, distinct initiatives initiated by The Trade Desk. We are looking for someone who can listen intently to the needs of the business, and develop and implement foundational processes that will lead to streamlined execution of key initiatives. You will have the ability to influence and communicate cross-functionally across many different departments.

What you will do:
  • Partner with executive stakeholders to program manage various projects that are critical to the organization’s success

  • Work cross-functionally with Sales, Client Services, Finance, Product Marketing and Partnerships teams

  • Program support will include the following:

    • Lead and facilitate communication, and coordinate daily activities

    • Launch workstreams and interface with stakeholders across the company to move program forward and meet milestones

    • Build project plans to ensure accountability

    • Develop executive level presentations to share progress

    • Recommend and establish clear KPIs to measure program success; where appropriate, work with Business Intelligence to create actionable reporting and dashboards

    • Conduct data analysis and make recommendations to drive decision making

    • Document best practices and memorialize process and learnings for future initiatives

    • Conduct post-mortem sessions and reports to evaluate success of program and surface opportunities for improvement 

  • This role is largely internal facing. Your clients will be dictated by the project/initiative that you are asked to help manage. You will be expected to bring the same standards of service to internal teams as we are known for in supporting our external clients

What you bring to the table:
  • 4+ years of work experience; previous operations or program management roles a plus

  • Strong analytical and problem solving abilities; proven ability to deconstruct nuanced and complicated business problems, recommend solutions and drive to outcomes with qualitative and quantitative data

  • Excellent diplomatic and communication skills, both verbal and written

  • Demonstrated planning and organizational skills; capable of managing multiple workstreams, manage to many deadlines with various stakeholders

  • Comfort with fast-paced, dynamic working environment with shifting priorities

  • Ability to present findings and insights concisely, objectively, and accurately

  • Proficient in Microsoft Office Suite, including Microsoft Excel and Powerpoint skills

  • Experience with a CRM tool is a plus (e.g. Salesforce)

The Trade Desk does not accept unsolicited resumes from search firm recruiters. Fees will not be paid in the event a candidate submitted by a recruiter without an agreement in place is hired; such resumes will be deemed the sole property of The Trade Desk. The Trade Desk is an equal opportunity employer. All aspects of employment will be based on merit, competence, performance, and business needs. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, marital status, age, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, pregnancy, genetic information, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, veteran status, or any other status protected under federal, state, or local law.

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 Software Engineer

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.
