3+ months agoNew York, NY


Amazon is investing heavily in building a world class advertising business, and our team owns a foundational pillar of that vision the Amazon Demand-Side Platform (ADSP) which enables Brands of all sizes to buy premium advertising (Display, Video, Audio, etc) across Amazon's ad network (, Amazon Devices & 3P Websites/MobileApps) across the world (12 locales), in a few clicks. Brands use ADSP to drive awareness (about their mission, products, etc.) to relevant current & prospective customers, to grow/strengthen their active customer-base world-wide. Brands interact directly or through external Agencies/Integrators, through our website and/or programmatic APIs (both owned by our org) and get enterprise-grade access (ex. 100+ campaign controls, 150+ metrics, 15MM+ placement choices, 1000+ campaigns/customer/day). ADSP represents a $1B+ business that is one of the two foundational tech stacks for Amazon Advertising (the other being Search Advertising) and aims to grow its share of a $465B market segment.
