Your role & responsibility
Do you feel excited about how the Digital and Television industries are coming together in regards to advertising technology? Are you especially excited for the development of new data-driven opportunities this movement brings?
Then you are in the right place. smartclip has developed a unique and fully proprietary toolset that enables data-driven decisions across the worlds of digital TV, web, and mobile advertising. Our fully anonymous privacy compliant approaches when handling aggregated viewing behaviour data allow us to ensure the right ad is being shown on the right device. By strongly relying on panel information, we do not need to stalk users for their private data. Our toolset is leading in terms of ease of use and performance which allows buyers to create complex data segments with only a few clicks. Our stack provides reach predictions for custom segments across millions of devices within the shortest time frames possible.


Furthermore, smartclip has developed new approaches to solving the identity problem in the post-cookie world. We are now bringing those into production as another key area of data-driven innovations.

As VP Data Products, you are leading the evolution of our data product portfolio.

Your responsibility is to be a true leader for your team, offering support when diffcult challenges arise, not the other way round. 
Your success will be measured by the adaption of your product portfolio by our key clients and the commercial benefits it generates for them.
