Your role

Managers for Business Products play a key role in our product and technology delivery. They act as an intermediary between smartclip’s main stakeholders and the development teams of smartclip’s leading adtech platform.


Do you feel excited about how the Digital and the Television industry are coming together when it comes to advertising technology and ad serving? Then you are in the right place. You will be responsible for guiding and providing our leading broadcaster clients with the right insights, and products for joining both worlds together. A new challenge has developed with the digitisation of traditional TV and radio advertising: while traditional digital advertisements have been designed to fill an ad slot with a single ad, modern ad decision systems need to be capable of filling ad slots with a sequence of ads that musto follow complex rule sets — creating the need for hybrid models of digital and linear ads. This is a new field in digital advertising and your role will be in charge of pioneering solutions that address this problem.


Beyond  continuous development of our existing audio and video ad format portfolio, you will also play a vital role in the specification of new ad formats. Part of your responsibility will be to work together with different stakeholders to prioritise and assess potential opportunities and incoming requirements. You will also be involved in related implementation tasks including assisting our international clients with advanced supply side and SDK related integrations of our tech stack.
