Scope of the role
IAB Europe has a new opening for a full-time Digital Advertising Product Manager to support the development and roll-out of programmatic digital advertising standards in Europe that relate to real time bidding, supply chain transparency and advertising sustainability.
The Digital Advertising Product Manager will support a small number of working groups focused on the technical development and implementation of IAB Europe’s privacy standard, the Transparency & Consent Framework (TCF), and on the development of standards in domains outside of privacy such as advertising transparency requirements laid down in the Digital Services Act (DSA) and environmental sustainability. He/she will also act as liaison and ensure effective collaboration with partner organisations on digital advertising technology topics.
Specific tasks in the scope of the role
Specifically, the Programmatic Advertising Product Manager would be expected to:
Providers (CMPs) and Vendors that implement the Transparency & Consent
Framework. This involve recruiting and managing external contractors that develop automated testing of CMPs and Vendors’ technologies to verify their compliance with the policies and technical specifications of the TCF;
To deliver the above, the successful candidate will have a deep understanding of the online advertising “ecosystem” and the technology involved in the delivery of programmatic advertising. A relevant academic background such as software engineering and at least three years of professional experience in technical product management in one or more companies operating in the sector are minimum requirements, as is good written and spoken English.
Experience in multicultural environments, ability to work autonomously, and a willingness to spontaneously identify and take on new challenges in a dynamic and demanding professional environment is important. Alongside this the role will need to confidently and with authority contribute to large and diverse working groups and feel comfortable when in some instances leadership of these groups is required.
The position could be based in Belgium (Brussels) or elsewhere in Europe. The position reports to IAB Europe’s Privacy Director and will require collaboration with colleagues on the policy, legal compliance and industry services teams within IAB Europe.
