The future will not be televised. It will be streamed. Help us make it happen. Roku is changing how the world watches TV Roku is the TV streaming platform in the US, and we’ve set our sights on powering every television in the world. Roku pioneered streaming to the TV. Our mission is to be the TV streaming platform that connects the entire TV ecosystem. We connect consumers to the content they love, enable content publishers to build and monetize large audiences, and provide advertisers unique capabilities to engage consumers. From your first day at Roku, you’ll make a valuable and valued contribution. We’re a fast-growing public company where no one is a bystander. We offer you the opportunity to delight millions of TV streamers around the world while gaining meaningful experience across a variety of disciplines. About the role The world is cutting the cord and streaming its TV online, a shift that has dramatically changed how advertisers target, reach and measure their preferred audiences in ways that broadcast TV and cable never could. Roku pioneered streaming to the TV and continues to innovate and lead the industry. While we are well-positioned to help shape the future of television and streaming media worldwide, continued success stems from our ability to innovate and deliver advertising products. Thus, we are looking for an Associate of Ad Operations to join our growing advertising operations team. As an Ad Ops Associate, you will work closely with our Client Services, Inventory Management, and Product teams to make every campaign that runs on Roku a success. This requires being results-oriented, focusing on achieving critical goals as agreed, and identifying when an effort is not on target. And because success at Roku is a team effort, a great candidate will possess the ability to collaborate with colleagues across functions to solve problems and design solutions and is comfortable in a highly entrepreneurial environment. What you’ll be doing Use 3rd party tools to ensure creatives running in our ad servers comply with our ad specifications Schedule both direct-sold and programmatic campaigns in Roku ad server and SSP Validate and track Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings data to ensure we are serving ads to the correct audience Generate aggregated reporting to allow Senior Ad Ops Associates and Account Managers to make strategic campaign optimization decisions Build custom sponsorship products using proprietary internal tool sets Contribute to ad hoc strategic projects and reporting that will help drive revenue growth for Roku We’re excited if you have 2+ years of experience in digital ad operations or QA at a publisher, an ad tech company, ad agency, or ad network, though familiarity with OTT advertising would be a plus Analytical, project management, deadline-driven, and process-oriented personality Experience in display and video advertising with a premium publisher or agency Experience with IAB VAST Experience with GAM and digital ad serving tools for video and display Familiarity with the digital ad sales process The Roku culture Roku is a great place for people who want to work in a fast-paced environment where everyone is focused on the company’s success rather than their own. We try to surround ourselves with people who are great at their jobs, who are easy to work with, and who keep their egos in check. We appreciate a sense of humor. We believe a fewer number of very talented folks can do more for less cost than a larger number of less talented teams. We’re independent thinkers with big ideas who act boldly, move fast and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. In short, at Roku you’ll be part of a company that’s changing how the world watches TV. We have a unique culture that we are proud of. We think of ourselves primarily as problem-solvers, which itself is a two-part idea. We come up with the solution, but the solution isn’t real until it is built and delivered to the customer. That penchant for action gives us a pragmatic approach to innovation, one that has served us well since 2002.
