Application Support Analyst I
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
The Trade Desk is looking for individuals ready for a challenge, ready to learn every day and make a difference in a quickly growing industry. What does quickly growing mean? This year, programmatic was a $10 billion industry. By 2016, it’s projected to be over $24 billion. Although it’s already a multi-billion dollar industry, advertising exchanges have been around for less than 10 years and the pricing dynamics are still being figured out.
We seek individuals who get excited to dive into the nuances of this nascent market to help us and our clients develop more efficient optimization methods. We want individuals who are motivated by using data-driven solutions to support client efforts to effectively buy advertising through The Trade Desk’s cutting edge platform. The Support team works closely with the Account Management team to address complex questions and requests and to identify areas for improvement.
We’re looking for someone who is enthusiastic about new technology, has not only the existing technical skills to be successful but also the acumen to learn even more; you’ll never run out of things to learn here. You’re comfortable being a mediator between account and technology teams, helping both reach solutions on high-priority technical issues. There is plenty of room for advancement in this role within the department or otherwise within our company that is a meritocracy.
