Job Description

About This Role

Epsilon is looking for a Director of Product Management to oversee Epsilon’s suite of media solutions available to programmatic media buyers that operate in a self-service environment. These capabilities include identity, data, and measurement solutions. This is a high visibility and high impact role with critical responsibilities that will shape the future of Epsilon (and Publicis, its parent company). The ideal candidate will have great leadership and communication skills, an analytical mindset, a sense of ownership and a solid understanding of the online advertising industry.
What You Will Do

This role will focus on the development and ongoing evolution of Epsilon’s self-service programmatic media capabilities. You will liaise with multiple stakeholder teams across Epsilon as well as Publicis Groupe, working to package our collection of capabilities into a cohesive product offering that delivers value for advertisers. The role involves a number of responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with multiple teams (sales, marketing, engineering, analytics, platform etc.) to drive the growth and adoption of Epsilon’s programmatic media capabilities.
  • Manage relationships and development progress with external stakeholders/partners/platforms
  • In partnership with our Sales team, own and track progress against product revenue goals.
  • Document product requirements, develop business cases, and present progress overviews to executive management and other internal stakeholders.

  • Conduct appropriate trainings with various internal teams (Sales, Account Management, Operations, Media, etc.)
  • Lead a variety of client meetings to articulate the strengths of Epsilon’s programmatic media capabilities.
  • Willingness to travel (<15%)

What You Are

  • Motivated self-starter with strong leadership and analytical skills. Able to elicit cooperation from a variety of resources and teams.
  • Someone who “owns it” – will take their projects/areas of responsibilities and develop a plan and manage full cycle to ensure completion/success.
  • Have the ability to use your background in online advertising and a familiarity with core advertising KPIs to develop an understanding and appreciation of Epsilon’s programmatic media capabilities and how your role connects to the various aspects of Epsilon’s martech, ad tech, and data solutions.
  • Able to work with a diverse team and adapt communication styles and message content to appropriate audiences.
  • Enjoys interacting with sales, senior leadership and external clients and can hold their own in front of these diverse groups.

Requirements

  • 8+ years of product management experience with increasing level of responsibility
  • Experience in a product management role related to the online advertising industry
  • Bachelor’s degree in a technical discipline or business function, or equivalent experience
  • Experience with programmatic advertising platforms
  • Experience with digital campaign measurement

An Insider's view of Epsilon

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a company band, made up of anywhere from 30 to 40 employees at a given time. The band has a large following and performs at charity events around Chicago. They also perform a full set at Epsilon’s holiday party each year at the House of Blues. My jaw hit the floor when I saw my peers up on stage rocking out.

Paul

Associate Automation & Infrastructure Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate through storytelling. It’s not ‘how’ we build it, but rather ‘why’ we build it. We need to tell stakeholders a story about a consumer pain point, solving it in a differentiated manner and the larger vision. Then, collaboration occurs as we incorporate feedback and have a motivated team building towards a shared vision.

Matt

VP, Product Management:

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Conversant has a very good work-life balance, including unlimited PTO. As a young adult, traveling around the world is one my top priorities and working with a company that aligns with that is a huge plus. I have had the flexibility to visit 7 countries. That flexibility is one of many things that has kept me at Conversant for five years.
