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.

What you’ll do: 


  • Managing the end-to-end new client set up and establishment across a portfolio of clients across media agencies.  
  • Opening the door for new opportunities by communicating to clients the value we can offer across different channels and diversifying our offering. An expert in our solution set; market differentiators and platform.  
  • Whilst not owning the end result, actively participating in the development of client strategies and attack plans.  
  • Owning relationships with the Investment Team of our agency clients. 
  • Owning client relationships and working with the Client Services team to partner on the identification and closing of existing client up-sell opportunities, owning net new revenue generation.  
  • Able to build relationships with senior stakeholders in agency clients.
  • Communicate the value of The Trade Desk media buying platform by walking through detailed demonstrations of the product.
  • Understand The Trade Desk's competitive differentiators in a dynamic online advertising landscape.
  • Work with the product team to help share customer insights that aid in crafting our product.

Who you are:

  • Bachelor’s Degree or relevant professional experience
  • Proven experience in online advertising in Advertising Sales/Business Development
  • Experience at an online publisher, ad network, ad exchange, ad server, SEM platform, DSP, or other online advertising roles
  • Relationships with key stakeholders and technology decision-makers at advertising agencies and advertisers
  • Strong quantitative skills and negotiation ability
  • Self-starter – able to tackle new clients or territories with little mentoring
  • Quick learner – able to rapidly grasp new technology and product changes
  • Able to travel 10–20% of the time including some overnight travel
  • Experience in managing longer sales cycles with multiple partners
  • Comfortable working cross-functionally to collaborate and grow an account
  • Proven track record of exceeding revenue expectations.
