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 you'll do:

We know that the onboarding process is the most important part of starting a new job and that onboarding really can make or break the long-term success of sales organization.

This includes designing, building, and executing the onboarding strategy and creating relevant, engaging, and impactful learning that inspires our new hires and instills the confidence, competence, and skills they need for their long-term success. You will become an expert in onboarding new hires in sales and have the opportunity to invent how we can deliver exceptional onboarding experiences at scale.

This includes planning work, prioritizing and managing details, keeping multiple tasks/projects on track, using time well, and delivering results with tight deadlines. You will be challenged to continuously inspect program effectiveness and identify opportunities to simplify, scale, and drive impact.

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
