StackAdapt is a self-serve advertising platform that specializes in multi-channel solutions including native, display, video, connected TV, audio, in-game, and digital out-of-home ads. We empower hundreds of digitally-focused companies to deliver outcomes and exceptional campaign performance everyday. StackAdapt was founded with a vision to be more than an advertising platform, it’s a hub of innovation, imagination and creativity.
On StackAdapt's Product team, you will be building products that help our customers thrive. There is no "standard" day for a Product Manager at StackAdapt – every day will have its own set of interesting challenges.
As a Product Manager on our Execution portfolio, you'll work collaboratively across our teams to design, build, and launch solutions that will delight our clients and empower strong end-user experiences. You've shipped successful digital products before, and have a bias for strong, data-informed action that ensures we build the right thing for our customers. Your responsibilities will be dynamic – you may be helping to improve our APIs with our engineers, building wireframes with our product designers, or facilitating user interviews to discover pain points. Ultimately, you should be able to create clarity out of ambiguity and guide teams to create high-quality user experiences.

- Become an expert in ad-tech and programmatic media buying, understanding the competitive landscape, the evolving market needs, and how those things relate to StackAdapt's mission and vision
What you'll bring to the table:
- Proven experience as a Product Manager in an AdTech company or with advertising campaigns; where you've shipped large, complex software products before (and can speak to their successes)
- A Computer Science or Engineering background - ensuring that you can intelligently communicate with all stakeholders about technical tradeoffs and product details
- Your communication is crisp, clear, and effective whether written or verbal - and you always know your audience

- An in-depth understanding of design thinking, inclusive design, and usability heuristics
