  • A solid network of contacts within the ad tech industry (senior decision makers a strong plus) and a proven record of influencing key decision makers to close sales
  • The ability to understand and present complicated technology concepts with confidence, and to simplify a technology-based value proposition by focusing on business benefits
  • An excellent communicator at all levels with strong sales and presentation skills
