We’re looking for a Manager, Ad Systems (12 month contract)!!

Working closely with the Director, Ad Operations, you will manage integrations and new innovations that surround our ad systems (GAM, Freewheel, AdsWizz, Operative, and Salesforce) and drive projects by building products and process that satisfy our main stakeholders: Ad Operations, Ad Tech, Sales/GTM, Revenue Management, and Reporting.

What you will do…

  • Lead projects and coordinate between stakeholders with communications, documentation, and training
  • Be an expert and liaison for digital ad operations at many project tables for various interlocks
  • Research, test, and deploy new system features and products
  • Deliver ongoing education and communications for internal teams to continually improve product and process
  • Ad product management: build, configuration, and sunset
  • User administration within ad delivery systems
  • Communicate with senior leadership to manage expectations and ensure timely delivery of projects.

What you will bring…

  • You are someone who thrives on getting things done. You like nothing more than a good problem to solve. Finding new efficiencies is exhilarating. Even when you don’t have all the answers, this doesn’t stop you from getting started. You’re able to listen and bring teams’ needs together. You are organized and can keep track of many threads at once. You’re good at checking in and still a strong independent worker. Though you need little direction, you aren’t afraid to ask for help. You can deal with complicated and conflicting priorities. You are comfortable communicating with senior leadership.
  • This is all supported by your deep knowledge of ad operations and ad delivery systems like GAM and Freewheel. You have experience with order management systems like Operative. You understand the technology enough to make informed initial assessments on process/product/project capabilities and possibilities. New platforms and products are normal.

Here’s what you can expect in return:

  • A competitive salary and benefits that include access to our Employee Share Accumulation Program, Retirement Benefits and a variety of other perks including 50% off Rogers services and Blue Jays tickets

  • Smart and accomplished colleagues who are focused on both the “what” and the “how” 
  • Flexibility to work from home even after the pandemic ends 
  • Your choice of hardware and software (iPhone or Android/Mac or PC etc.) 
  • As we grow our team, the well-being of our team members remains our top priority. To ensure the health and safety of our team members, including those in the recruitment process, our team members are working from home, and are equipped to do so safely and efficiently
