Building an advertising platform that accurately answers our client marketing objectives demands strong product management and great software development, but it also requires solid connections with other players of the adtech ecosystem. To achieve the latter, the aforementioned teams and our Business Partnerships team work closely with Partner Integration Engineers to integrate with third-party technology solutions. We seek out partners who offer solutions that add value to our own products and also strive to find opportunities to add value to their platforms, always with the marketer and end user in mind.
As part of our Product Expertise organization which conveniently interoperates with both Product & Software Engineering (DESIGN & BUILD) and the Commercial organization (SELL & RUN) in the field, the Partner Integration Engineer manages a portfolio of existing and new partner integrations. They lead the technical onboarding and ensure continuity of the integration with minimum glitches. They act as solutions consultants and are able to communicate across a wide array of internal and external profiles ranging from highly technical to business stakeholders.
