| Greater NYC Area

The Trade Desk is a global technology company with a mission to create a better, more open Internet for everyone through principled, intelligent advertising.

Come and see why Fortune Magazine consistently ranks The Trade Desk among best small-medium sized workplaces globally.

WHO WE ARE:

The Trade Desk is leading the way to the future of marketing by changing how advertising is bought and sold. Working with the largest brands and agencies around the world, our technology platform helps consumers discover products they want by enabling advertisers to target and reach them on the right channels at the right time.

Employees join The Trade Desk to discover opportunity, contribute to our customers’ success, and be part of building the future of marketing. You’ll work with creative, compassionate, and collaborative colleagues that share a passion for making the internet better for all – a combination that simply can't be beat.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

We are looking for driven Senior-level Product Managers who learn fast, who are humble and value teamwork; who are hungry and believe they can make our customers world a much better place. The ideal candidate will be technical, data driven, creative, business savvy and love elegant user experience. They will be growth oriented and able to strive for product-market fit with their teams.

The kind of person who joins The Trade Desk Product Team is fearless, courageous, passionate and willing to dream big and then execute on it. We are committed to helping you grow, challenging you with hard, meaningful work and celebrating our successes and failures together. Yes, we do fail at times because we believe risk is part of making big bets. So we take the risks and learn from them. We also value strong leadership, asking our PMs to take on large, ambitious and

often ambiguous projects that can help extend out lead in the industry.

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING:

The Trade Desk is a rapidly growing company, as our CEO often says: "we're only 2% done." We are facing the biggest paradigm shift in advertising in the last century as the industry moves towards data-driven, results-oriented advertising.

We rely on Identity Graphs to group billions of devices into People and Households concepts, and we achieve that with our own graph solutions, as well as offer 3rd party products in our marketplace. Our Identity Alliance product combines the power of multiple identity graphs and chooses the best cross-device link on each of the 10 million requests that our platform evaluates per second.

As a Product Manager for Identity at the Trade Desk, your responsibilities will include:

  • Defining the strategy and prioritizing improvements to both our graphs and the Identity Alliance product.
  • Preparing for User IDs going away in different environments.
  • Continuing to evolve our cross-device capabilities while staying on top of ever-changing global privacy landscape.
  • Leading the team in the search of the optimal mix of heuristics and machine learning models.

Our team's responsibility is to ensure customers can benefit from all the cross-device identity graphs in the platform without thinking too much about them.

WHAT YOU BRING TO THE TABLE:
  • You have built complex products that take years of iterations to become great
  • You can easily find answers in data, you don’t shy away from SQL and are open to learning Spark for analyzing petabytes of raw data
  • Sharing a product area with another PM comes naturally to you
  • 5+ years of Product Management experience
  • Excellent communication/presentation skills both in large and small groups
  • A sustained track record of making significant, self-directed, and end-to-end contributions to large and impactful software projects 
  • Ability to solve complex, technical problems with creative solutions while managing tradeoffs

Nice-to-haves

  • Experience working with distributed teams - we have over 20 offices globally and most of the colleagues are working from home these days
  • Experience in the advertising technology space
  • Experience working with identity graphs
  • Background in software development, engineering, or data science

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.

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.
