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.

Raise your hand if you LOVE ads! Yeah, we feel the same… So come be a part of the solution, by joining the team that is changing the face of advertising for the better. Founded by the pioneers of real-time bidding (RTB), The Trade Desk has become the fastest growing demand-side platform (DSP) in the industry by offering agencies and their advertisers a best-in-class technology platform that focuses on delivering meaningful and relevant engagement with consumers.

With integrations into every major advertising exchange, we handle well over 4 trillion requests every month and growing – that's more page views and queries than Facebook, Google Search, and Google's entire network of websites combined – all serviced in single-digit-ms response times. Are you interested in working with big data? Do you want to push the edges of scale and responsiveness? It doesn't get much bigger or faster than this!

We are looking to hire a Platform Support Coordinator who will work in collaboration with our Biz Teams to ensure top notch application support. 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.

  • Advance troubleshooting and problem-solving skills.
  • Outstanding written and verbal communication skills, including an ability to explain complex subjects to a non-technical audience.

An Insider's view of The Trade Desk

What’s the vibe like in the office?

In our office, there’s a ton of collaboration and communication across teams, and everyone is generous with their time and eager to help each other out. We value getting to know each other whether it's our summer softball league, happy hours and office events, or just simply grabbing lunch in the kitchen.

Senior Talent Acquisition Associate

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As advertisers’ capabilities evolve with new channels of delivery, they produce new ways for ads to reach and measure their audiences. Constantly adapting to new methodologies is quite a challenge. We have to stay informed to successfully support our team. Being inquisitive is as important as having technical training to face these challenges.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining in 2017, the opportunities have been endless. On the Data Partnerships Team, I’ve been able to collaborate with colleagues inside and outside my team, allowing me to learn and grow alongside the company. The entire trajectory of my job and career has been immensely affected by the culture of learning that is always encouraged here.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

With an increasingly complex digital ecosystem, clients need consultation. We’ve developed ways to address larger brand challenges, be better partners with our agencies & brands, and overall empowered our clients with tools to facilitate better digital marketing. We’re always sharing ideas on how to continue on that path of consultation.
