The Company

The Role
As a Technical Account Manager you will become an expert in the Real-Time-Bidding and Programmatic Advertising solutions delivered to your clients, combining technical expertise with an in depth understanding of client goals and strategies. You will lead technical conversations with your clients, scoping and agreeing on the technical deliverables in projects, managing software deployments and enhancements, and resolving complex technical problems.

You'll also work closely with the backend Software Engineering team, reviewing and debugging code,  writing scripts, gathering and analysing data in SQL, and testing features and functionality.
 
Responsibilities include:

  • Understanding your clients' technical needs and suggesting solutions to improve performance
  • Implementing technical solutions, including custom data imports and exports
