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.

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 for our Ventura, CA headquarters. You 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. You’re a star communicator, customer focused, and love solving technical problems. There is plenty of room for advancement in this role within the department or otherwise within our company.

WHAT YOU'LL DO:
  • Support for application issues; ensuring that incidents within our platform or tools are addressed within established SLAs
  • Responsible for owning incidents, including escalating to other technical teams
  • Multi-task, manage, and resolve transactional application support requests
  • Problem-solving and troubleshooting
  • Executing Stored Procedures and querying our database using SQL
  • Maintain the company’s ticketing system; answer, troubleshoot, and resolve various technical issues related to The Trade Desk’s trading platform
  • Take initiative on tickets that can be completed without Development Team assistance
  • Contribute to the company’s Knowledge Base by the creation of new Articles and updating existing ones
  • QA Testing and Validation
  • Coordinate in-depth training on support-related tools and processes
  • Some on-call/after-hours support
WHO YOU ARE:
  • Bachelor’s Degree from a four-year university or relevant substitute experience
  • 0--3 years relevant work experience as a support representative in a small or medium sized business
  • Self-directed and able to quickly develop troubleshooting, analytical, and problem-solving abilities.
  • An ability to collaborate cross-functionally in a fast-paced start-up environment
  • Basic to mid-level SQL and HTML experience
  • Knowledge of Excel and MS Office, including pivot tables, chart-making, and manipulation of large data sets is a plus
  • General knowledge of RTB, DSPs, ad exchanges, aggregators, ad servers, and other optimization platforms is a plus
  • No previous online advertising experience required, but those with experience or internships in online advertising or technology are encouraged to apply
  • Effective time management skills – ability to prioritize and meet deadlines
  • Outstanding written and verbal communication skills, including an ability to explain complex subjects to a non-technical audience.
  • The team is expected to work some weekends and holidays.#LI-TP1

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.

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 .

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.
