Programmatic Sales Manager, New York

Wunderkind (formerly BounceX)

Wunderkind (formerly BounceX)

Sales & Business Development
New York, NY, USA
Posted on Thursday, February 15, 2024

After driving growth for 400+ retailers and eCommerce companies, Wunderkind has successfully pioneered an ad experience that allows Publishers to give their visitors a better ad experience -- one that puts content first and ads second.

Rather than placing an ad in front of someone while they're actively trying to read content, our technology patiently waits until a visitor has stopped reading before rendering our ad on the page. And that patience pays off -- it turns out that when an ad experience respects the user's reason for visiting a page, the user respects the ad experience in return. This unique, brand safe approach to ad experience gives an advertiser's message more attention and greater engagement.

Wunderkind is looking for a top-performing Programmatic Sales Manager to work with our Senior Director on a specified list of agency, trading desk, brand and DSP accounts across NYC and the larger east coast region. We are looking for someone with a proven track record of revenue growth and has healthy client relationships.

This is a hybrid, in-office (NYC) position.

  • Own the relationship and ultimate success of a dedicated segment of Wunderkind’s demand-side agency partners
  • Work closely with Account Management to maximize campaign performance, spend, and renewal business
  • Offer clients insight on how to launch and improve campaigns across Wunderkind inventory and provide ongoing management to clients as new features and inventory are added to our product offering
  • Develop best practices by creating training materials, sales materials and customer facing guides

You Will Stand Out With:

  • BA/BS degree plus experience related to digital media or digital advertising
  • At least 3+ years of online advertising sales experience required
