  • Customer Engagement: Develop strong relationships with agency, brand, and publisher partners to gather insights and feedback, ensuring our products meet their evolving needs.

What You’ll Get to Do:

  • Define Product Strategy: Articulate and implement a clear, strategic vision for the future of connected TV and other digital channels at Publica.

  • Innovate and Execute: Drive the development of new features and enhancements, from UI/UX improvements to complex data engineering pipelines, ensuring our solutions set the industry standard for innovation.

  • Lead and Mentor: Foster a culture of excellence and continuous improvement within your team, mentoring staff, and guiding them through complex project landscapes.

You Should Apply If You Have Most of This Experience:
