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.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

The Trade Desk is a dynamic and fast-growing company with a legal team that has tripled in size in the two years. We are looking for someone who loves to analyze complex legal issues, find creative solutions, and effectively negotiate deals.  We want collaborators who will help structure deals with his/her business counterparts and, hopefully, contribute some humor to our legal slack channel.  Please be able to balance competing demands, work independently, and maintain a positive attitude. 

WHAT YOU'LL DO:

  • Exercise exceptional judgement to advise The Trade Desk team and contribute to the overall success of the business
  • Structure, draft, review, negotiate, and manage a variety of commercial agreements including master service agreements, insertion orders, NDAs, and various supplier agreements
  • Advise on corporate finance, public company reporting, and securities law matters, including preparing SEC filings such as registration statements, Forms 10-K, 10-Q, and 8-K, and Section 16 reports.
  • Work closely with the finance and investor relations teams on equity matters, disclosure issues and stockholder relations matters
  • Identify, research, analyze, and advise teams on a wide range of relevant legal topics (e.g., corporate governance, licensing, intellectual property, commercial, data security, and privacy law), issues, and risks
  • Keep abreast of legislative changes that may affect the company globally
  • Communicate complex legal concepts in layman’s terms
  • Continually improve our legal processes to help us scale globally with a consistent but locally relevant approach

WHO YOU ARE:

  • 8+ years of experience working in an internationally/nationally-recognized law firm or in house legal department
  • Admitted to practice in New York or California or the ability to register as In-House Counsel in New York or California
  • Juris doctorate from a top-ranked US law school required
  • Strong business sense and ability to exercise good business judgement is critical
  • Effective communicator, with the ability to interact with internal and external constituents at all levels
  • Superior analytical skills with a creative and pragmatic problem-solving approach
  • Excellent legal skills, including significant experience in structuring, drafting, reviewing, and negotiating a variety of transactional agreements.
  • Strong commitment to providing responsible, timely, and top-quality client service with superior work product is necessary
  • Ability to thrive in fast paced environment
  • Excellent interpersonal skills (sense of humor is a big plus)
  • General understanding of intellectual property, online and mobile advertising, and data issues required
  • Background in advertising, privacy, and/or digital media is preferred
  • International experience a plus
  • Please include a cover letter outlining your interest in the role.

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.

Ephraim

Data Specialist

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 .

Amy

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.

Senior Account Manager
