What's your new role about?

Are you an Adtech specialist who can't help yourself talking all things Adtech ( e.g. programmatic, header bidding, advertising data flows, consent management, etc.)? 

As a Senior Product Manager at DAZN, you will take ownership & accountability for coordinating development and other activities within a fast-paced digital media environment. You'd work on strategically important projects with high-profile internal and external brands. You would also be a part of a highly valued Adtech team, enabling delivery of commercially-focused products within the sports industry. Your key areas of focus will be implementing new revenue-generating advertising propositions and leveraging data to maximise existing offerings and drive monetization. 

Your success in this role hinges on your ability to be highly analytical, resourceful, customer-focused and team-orientated with an ability to work independently under time constraints to meet critical deadlines. 

HERE'S A BREAKDOWN OF WHAT YOU'LL DO

  • Understand the data that inform our KPIs (Yield, STR, CTR, Viewability) to identify strategic opportunities to grow revenue
  • Be an adtech SME by keeping abreast of industry trends and changes
  • Capture requirements from stakeholders across product, ad ops, commercial, BI and data science teams, including appropriate technical detail, and business goals
  • Help to shape the ad stack strategy, including our approach to header bidding, ad reclamation and various integrations to drive revenue growth
  • Create user stories and use cases that include appropriate level of technical detail and stakeholder's objective. Liaise with other relevant product teams to raise user stories and use cases
  • Help maintaining and support workflow for ad related problems. Participate in troubleshooting and triage of problems
  • Develop and maintain core project documentation from inception, working with delivery stakeholders and project managers to estimate development effort and dependencies to inform timescales and budgets
  • Coordinate internal communication, training briefings and supporting (handover) documentation ahead of product launches
  • Deliver action-focused post-project reviews to improve future projects

DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?

  • Passionate about Adtech with previous experience in driving ad tech related products / projects
  • Demonstrable experience of delivering advertising products or data projects preferably within an Agile/Scrum (experience of other methodologies beneficial)
  • SME on all things adtech e.g. programmatic, header bidding, advertising data flows, consent management, etc
  • Strong stakeholder management, influencing and communication skills; written and verbal. The ability to explain rationale behind choices and technical concepts to both technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Strong product management skills, including capturing requirements, writing user stories and working with development teams to manage and prioritise backlogs
  • Proven experience of analysing and using data to uncover new opportunities and make key product decisions (e.g. as evidence to prioritise bugs and/or new features) that drive revenue growth (new initiatives or optimisations).
  • Process improvement: demonstrable experience in taking manual tasks and automating them, simplifying processes for both internal and external stakeholders, improving processes and managing change
  • A doer with a bias for action that can bring stakeholders together to drive progress on projects
  • Ability to work in a deadline-driven work environment with good attention to detail
  • Basic HTTP, HTML, Javascript and CSS knowledge
  • Previous knowledge and experience using DoubleClick for Publishers

IT'D BE GREAT IF YOU HAD THESE TOO

  • Previous work experience in adOps or ad sales for a Publisher, OTT provider or SSP
  • Defined ad tech strategies in past or have experience integrating different advertising technologies
  • Working on projects that require the use of big data infrastructure. For example, experience in Cloudera, Oozie and Spark, or similar.
  • Use of Data Science/BI/Analytics tools/languages such as Power BI, Google Data Studios, Python, Scala
  • Remote development team management
  • Proven record of having managed large-scale product implementations or integrations
