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

Handling over 600 billion queries per day (more than 100X the query volume of search globally), our platform operates at unprecedented scale.  We have also built something even stronger and more valuable: an award-winning culture based on trust, empathy, collaboration, and ownership. By working together across typical dividing lines, we are better as a team than any of us could be apart.

Do you have a passion for solving hard problems at scale? Are you eager to join a trust-based, globally-connected team, where your contributions will make a meaningful difference?   

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