An Insider's view of The Trade Desk

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

It’s not uncommon in our Ventura office for several engineers to go surfing on their lunch break or when the waves are just right. For those of us who can’t seem to swim, we tend to play basketball during lunch. Others like to take hikes behind the office along the hillside, work out or even run along the beach.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We work in pods of 3-4 per client. Each pod has a trader, account executive, and account manager. Typically, account managers handle the daily communication with the client, provide platform training, support traders in optimizing/troubleshooting campaigns, and support sales. The three roles are indispensable to each client .

Account Coordinator

How does the company support your career growth?

Everyone at The Trade Desk invests in each other’s growth. Management is very good about keeping up with everyone and understanding what your career plans are to help work with you in achieving them. The best part is being able to work together with a brilliant team to learn and grow together so you are never alone.

Nathan

Trading Specialist

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

One of my favorite meetings is our monthly product pitch where employees from all over the company get to pitch their ideas to our senior leadership and product teams. We are a product driven company and nothing informs the direction of our business more than having a say in what we should build next.

Alex

VP, Client Services & Strategy

What’s the vibe like in the office?

People come to the office to get their work done, but also want to enjoy their time in the office as well. We all take turns DJ’ing the Bluetooth speaker in the office and taking music requests from others. There’s constant collaboration and communication going on between all teams in the office.
