Head of Programmatic Platforms

This is, without a doubt the most exciting senior programmatic role in New Zealand today. A major networked media agency is looking for an industry heavy-weight to join them and set the stage for the next steps on their programmatic journey - covering platform evaluation and integration, customer success and programmatic best practice. 


·         Blend your technical and commercial skills

·         Newly created, senior level role

·         Work closely with international partners




As one of New Zealand’s most highly acclaimed media agencies, this business has a leadership team that is the envy of the industry. Their existing clients are some of the country’s largest advertisers and they continue to win NZ’s choicest brands to join their already prestigious roster. With a multitude of awards to their name, they have vibrant offices in the center of Auckland, with entertainment and lunchtime stroll options on the doorstep.  




This role blends technical programmatic expertise with commercial and leadership nous. You’ll evaluate and manage all platforms within the programmatic ad stack, using your technical expertise to resolve issues, and will identify opportunities to improve both products and processes.


Your highest priority will be to ensure that clients receive a high-quality product experience.


•                     Build strong relationships with internal stakeholders, media and key clients

•                     Own programmatic pitch rates

•                     Manage and inspire your team of programmatic professionals

•                     Evaluate and manage all platforms within the programmatic ad stack

•                     Oversee PMP creation, management and upkeep

•                     Troubleshoot top level deal issues




We are looking for an accomplished programmatic professional with a deep appreciation for the agency space. With strong, senior level experience you will have proven skills in managing enterprise-level clients and will be known as a great people-manager.


You’ll be equally comfortable with your hands on the programmatic tools, troubleshooting complex campaigns, as you will be in the boardroom, discussing programmatic pitch rates.  


·         Senior level experience with leading programmatic strategy and operations

·         Technical nous

·         Proven skills in team leadership

·         Knowledge of agency operations and culture

·         Friendly manner & excellent client relationship skills
