    • Success driving direction and performance through measurement
    • Excelled at executing with agile software development in a b2b environment
    • Ability to detect signal from noise to identify patterns and formally expose customers’ needs underlying their feature requests
    • Unparalleled analytical and problem-solving skills to simplify complex business issues, and suggest elegant solutions to technically challenging problems with a very high attention to detail
    • Outstanding written & verbal communication skills to present intricate concepts in a crisp, concise way to technical and non-technical audiences alike

    • Technical understanding or direct experience on similar advertising stack is a strong plus.
    • A bachelor’s or graduate degree in engineering, computer science, mathematics or a closely related field from a top-tier university strongly preferred. An advanced degree is also a plus.
